Thankfully it did not happen to me here, but on another board I was actually hit by a spambot and it could not be the dumbest thing I ever seen...and I have seen some real dumb things before. I get this message supposedly from this young African woman claiming that she fell in love with me via my profile. Like here, on that other board my profile isn't much. She them asks me to send her an email so we can get to know each other better. Which I did, no joke I was sent 2 images supposedly of her I know I seen on Facebook. I figured it had to be a scam, so I sent an email back claiming to be on the verge of bankruptcy. The next email I get is one of those typical Nigerian spam scams.
OK we probably still have some members who are spambots who will post in the next week or two, but after that the spam should slow significantly, perhaps even stop all together. There is a random question which needs to be answered upon registration. I have enabled this feature. It stops spambots cold in their tracks.
Due to this Q&A thing, I have changed the number of posts necessary to start a new thread from 10 to 1. It will still take up to an hour or so for the forum to auto-promote new users after that 1 post.
What is the question?
