Rather more visible spammer activity than usual this morning. Does this mean that: (a) BG has suddenly been singled out for attack; (b) It's no more spammer activity than usual, but they're slipping through for whatever reason; or (c) "Our defense screens are down, Captain—we cannae take much more o' this!"?

I've just reported two and there are more.  Shocked
All hands to battle stations!!!

Should we report more spammers or is it not needed for the moderators?  Undecided

We seem to have had a moderation shadow coincide with a spam slam.

For some reason, ReCAPTCHA is not working right. The CAPTCHA shows up, but you can answer with anything and it'll let registration complete.  I've filed a bug report with the module author.  I have no idea why this started now, I haven't touched registration in weeks.

New spammer today: "dempsey802", promoting NFL/NHL jerseys in four different groups.  This is pure link spam intended for search engines, with text in Spanish copied from news media and links randomly inserted in the text. It's not even intended for human reading.

     I also reported the post immediately after I saw it, so you may have banned him before I posted here.

     Edit) I checked and the offending post has been removed from the thread in question.

Are you sure that you're not thinking of "Bacon Grill"? or is that just a Cardiffian/S. Walian thing?

Pretty sure I was the one who banned that username, but don't recall removing any posts... (banned a lot of spam accounts today, mind is going fuzzy)

Oh well, one of us got him anyway.  Wink

Ah, that would explain why I'm finding posts where the user has already been banned, but their posts haven't been removed.

Just tried to report hitechitkib and guekhlg378 for spamming, but I got a "30 second after the last post, try again later".

Yeah, I've found that same thing a few times myself. Easy enough to miss if you just found the spammer via the member list.  Smiley

I probably missed a few spam posts though, After the first 60 or so I sort of hit 'auto pilot'...  Cheesy
