Uh...has anyone besides me noticed the large amount of users that have overrun Blue Harvest...again?

Note in this image The notes i have circled in red. Apparently, we hit our largest active user total last Wednesday...and nobody noticed! confusedsmall.gif

You know what this means...the spambots have returned! shocked.gif

You think that's scary? Click on the Online List and look at how many pages there are of Guests... last night I counted 8 pages. scared.gif

Quinlan: Spambots are exactly what they say on the tin; Robots that spam. They cruise forums (usually under silly names like "FREECASINOCREDIT" OR "SEXYVIDEO" which give it away). They sometimes post offers and links, but this is rare for this forum nowadays. Best thing to do is ignore them.

I do hope that we don't have to refer to Captcha's now we've been over run again:

Yeah, it's quiet down a bit today...only 5 pages...but they're probably on a coffee break. msn_coffee.gif whatever.gif

Bane- Isn't Captcha that "human access code" or whatever that you have to type in every time you log in somewhere? Those are so annoying! blargh.gif

It is indeed. They have them enforced on MySpace now everytime you edit your profile or message a band/director. It's getting worse, and the Spambots are getting smarter... scared.gif It is annoying, but they do the job. I haven't seen a spammed bulletin or profile in weeks.

Yeah, it has been noticed already. Knowing nothing about it myself I quote Blue and assume some Yahoo robot has gotten stuck on the site... confusedsmall.gif

Vacation, like most of us. tounge.gif Just that she's not stealing away time from her family and friends to take her laptop to a WLan hotspot and check the forum like some of us... whatever.gif

Haha! Oh, she's on vacation, no problem. I thought for one wicked moment they'd overpowered her, but not Sofia. Not to seem desperate or petty, but when is she due back? blush.gif

"It is known that there are infinite number of worlds, simply because there is infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so average population of all planets in Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that population of whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of deranged imagination."

Like *LO* said; a Yahoo search robot has got stuck in the forum and run rampid with our members online list.

I noticed it before I went on vacation but assumed that it would go away by itself (these robots usually do). No such luck, so now that I'm back I've taken measures to get rid of the robot. The online list should return to normal shortly. smile.gif

Lousy spambots. thinking.gif raising our hopes and then grinding them into the dust with steel-capped boots. ... It's enough to make any poor blettie cry. sad.gif

... yeah, i'm being overdramatic. confusedsmall.gif But still, they're a pain.
