    *CALCULATING COMMENT*

    I LOVE THE TOPIC OF $(SEGA) *bleep boop*

    *COMMENT COMPLETE*

    For real though, it seems like there are a lot of bot-like names. I tried to open the profile page of a few of them, but I just got the usual permission error when trying to view brand new profiles. I haven't noticed much spam happening recently though. I wonder if they're freshly created, and waiting until they are able to post comments or PM people with spam.
    Modded consoles:
    Master System (v7040) with s-video & direct AV out
    Model 1 with 10mhz overclock & halt switches
    Model 1 with 10mhz 68010
    Model 2 VA2.3 with unfiltered Mega Amp, & s-video
    Model 3 VA1 with compatibility fixes & s-video
    32X with s-video

    Yeah, it seems like the main avenue for a while has been visitor messages or PMs. Fortunately I haven't been bitten by any of those yet.

    They may also have the ability to link to spammy URLs in their profile pages, boosting the Google ranking of the site(s) they're programmed to serve. So they don't really need to comment on the site if they can get their dirty work done through profile pages, publicly-visible visitor message pages, and (pointless) spam PMs.

    We struggle to keep them at bay as it is. Imagine if I eliminated the anti-spam measures so many people complain about.

    There are a lot of bots logged on presently.
    17 with usernames: "Eldar" in the beginning,
    And 19 with "llushik" in the beginning of the username.

    The 32X deserved to exist, if only to pave the way for the creation of the best waifu ever.

    Yeah, there's whole families of them. The Meamp family is a popular fixture here, despite being banned, for some reason their presence can't entirely be eliminated.

    I like when a bunch of Meamps are logged in. Reminds me of the Road Runner, and I hear that honking noise he does in my head. *meamp meamp*

    I'm quite partial to Alfredfap. Haven't seen him around in a while though.

    Girls anime just joined today. I don't know much about forum software, how do they just barge in here without approval like they do?
