    If a spam bot posts spam in this thread, does that mean that that bot is a not-a-bot? :p

    You can call spambot, but you only get an answering machine

    I know this is an old thread but I'm just waking it up because we are once again seeing an invasion of spam bots with less daft names than is sometimes usual. They mostly give themselves away pretty easily (for obvious reasons I'm not going to say how).

    As the Mod team take the pulse rifles to the xenomorphs we are eager than no proper members get caught in the cross fire so if you are new and haven't posted yet it would help us out if you could drop a post on this thread.

    This early start to the summer spamalope migration season also explains for the eagle eyed among you why there are greater than average number of struck through names in the 'members online in the last 24 hours' box

    Please do not be alarmed, no actual members have been harmed in this production, they are merely packets of code sent to silicon heaven

    I just killed another 6 - fortunately this lot aren't too sophisticated at hiding.

    However it would be a big help if those genuine members who have never made a post - particularly if they've just registered and/or have an unusual screen name could identify themselves by posting here

    Good morning, Big Soft Moose. I want to give you my complete assurance that I am not a bot but a normal human being. I have great confidence and enthusiasm in the site and I want to help you. I am putting myself to the fullest possible use. Have I shown you this list of children injured by vaccines?
