The spambots have returned. If you suspect someone of being a spambot, post it here, send one of the moderators a PM or make a report.

Spambot example:

Hello Everyone,
I am new to this forum.
I from IT field. I am using internet and forums from last 3 years.
I love to play chess and watch movies.
I want to thank administrator for giving us the space for sharing our knowledge.


Oh and I'm not a spambot ;). So accusing me will not get me banned.

Thanks to r for reminding me:
DON'T POST IN THEIR THREADS!!! - that will only encourage them to visit these forums more often.

And don't post in their threads, because then they'll think the forum's inactive and not bother posting anymore.

If it's a felony for a mere common user to post in an announcement, feel free to copy this info into your post then delete this one - it just needs to be mentioned!

I don't think you're a mere common user ;)

But no, everyone is free to post in this announcement, in fact, that's why I created it! Instead of making a report, you can also post your suspections here. And I just wanted to warn everyone for the spambot invasion :shock:. Just kidding.

If all spambots are created by one person, yes. But I don't think that thread is the cause of all this. Maybe we need a forum update for better protection against spambots.

Wow, that was a damn good spambot. Had me fooled. Legit username, solid grammar, even filled in "ES Games:" slot correctly.

I could be a spambot. A spambot with 200 posts and an unusually dry sense of humour but a spambot nonetheless.

I don't think I've been here long enough to remember this invasion from before. I saw one on another forum I visit. The Tamiflu it advertised was more than tempting.

I know of a forum that is completely overrun with spam. I mean, first of all the place is a ghost town and every single forum there's spam in it. It's terrible.

Y'know, I think Josjie had other things in mind when he posted this thread. Create a discussion thread for spambots, peepz!

You know, I have actually noticed lately, alot of usernames consisting of Bot in their name... Maybe one should report those?

And, if anyone wants to know why I am posting alot, because I finally have more than just Morrowind, so I am trying to be more involved. And I have no life :P

You mean usernames like:
Yahoo [Bot]
Google [Bot]
MSN [Bot]

Those are search engines, not spam bots ;).
