Default The Bot List

Well, apparently the massive bot infestation that we all thought was starting to die down has just switched over to spamming in private messages. So, to keep track of (and eliminate) these bastards here's the official Bot List, the place to post the names of all those who we haven't banned yet. All you need to do is post the account and why (i.e. advertising, etc.) and one of the friendly, power hungry, pure evil mods on staff will go about disposing of them. (Feel free to PM us as well, this is just to save space in our inboxes.)

Update: A new breed of bots is spamming using ads in their signatures and copy/pasting other people's posts so they can get through the quick and dirty inspections of mods. If you see anyone who's doing this, please report them.

Update 2: Bot Breed 2 - the Spammening...So now we've got bots that spam users posting as fake admins/mods and saying they've got a virus. Remember, this is bullshit spam, probably virus laden. If you get a message from anyone regarding your own personal computer and its status it's a virus bot and you should notify us immediately so we can ban them. Remember, we can't see what's on your computer, only the Feds and hackers can.

When a mod appears, he will get a LOT of cleaning after it.

Not really, he can just select "find all posts by whateverhisnamewas" and find them that way.

How has being an Autobot in any way prevented you from doing exactly what you want? Because if the answer is "it hasn't"—then nothing you've said or done in the last six months counts for anything.

MysterialSEO banned.

Idiotic of a bot to private message a moderator who has the sole purpose in life of exterminating his kind. I hope I got him in time to stop too many of you getting raped.

If he hasn't done anything than we won't ban him. If, however, he's actually spammed someone's inbox than we'll take action. The point of this sticky is so people can have a place to report actual spam, not ban innert accounts.

Update: A new breed of bots is spamming using ads in their signatures and copy/pasting other people's posts so they can get through the quick and dirty inspections of mods. If you see anyone who's doing this, please report them.

I know, I know, I'm a stickler for rules (both the NSFW and double posting) and Warlock's going to kill me...but this was just too good to pass up. Apparently someone failed to mention why it's important to get a good english translator if you're going to spam ads.

Original Thread Title: "You can more..." by some bot from Bolivia.



And yes this is also now the official thread for showing you guys what kind of funny shenanigans spambots get into.

That guy has 2 posts around, both of them lacking sense if you pay enough attention.

Random chance really, they just find a thread and start posting, and every once in awhile they happen to hit funny coincidences.

That guy has 3 posts already, and acts "normally", more or less.

I require utter punishment .
