Comicgenesis in Spam Apocalypse?

Postby [AlmightyPyro] on Mon Jan 17, 2011 11:36 pm

I come back to CG for the first time in a while and the General Discussion is over run by casino and auto insurance spam? Has the CG Apocalypse finally happened?! And did the end really come by SPAM?! That's it... I've lost faith in all Geners... There is no Bob!!

*riots in the street*
I'm glad 90's style forum signatures don't exist anymore.

Bob is dead, Bob remains dead, and we have killed him.

I don't know about you, but I've been seeing a lot of earthquakes and famines and wars and rumours of wars around here lately.

You can at least hide the spam by making the spammers your "foes" in the friend/foe system of the forums, although apparently that doesn't hide the topics, just the individual posts...

I could use a new war. These current ones are getting a bit stale and predictable.

This whole forum has become obese with spam. I look sadly upon him, as one might regard an unintelligible homeless man.

Anyone who has become obese through spam should be looked upon sadly. It would take a LOT of Spam to make a person obese, and anyone who is willing to eat that much of a "potted meat product" clearly has something wrong with them. :-? :-?

I think all this spam is blow back from the internet gods for all the hate CG gave to a particular furry porno web comic. maybe the perverted troll was right and CG will be ruined.

Every time I come by lately, I think to myself, "so this is what the death of a forum looks like." :cry:

I also worry that posting somehow triggers the bots, so I'm afraid to. :-?

But we can beat them! We're (mostly) humans, and the robots shall not prevail! XD

Gratuitous smilies are fun. 8-)

Spammers are back, with a vengeance! It took me two pages this time to find regular topics.

Honestly, the forums are almost unusable with all the spam. When this happens it's really time to get draconian. Ban IPs. Ban whole dynamic ranges. Ban ISPs if necessary. Typically these things come out of Eastern Europe, so a ban that covers a small geographic region will cut off the flow of spam.

The time has clearly come to enact emergency protocols and give me access to unchecked power with no oversight in the hopes that might wielded by a single individual will see us through the crisis. I promise to only use my authoritarian powers upon the spammers and give it up after the crisis has ended.

Drolux is a huge spammer and is currently logged in. It needs to have been banned already...

Yep. Any day now. I can only report so many threads before it gets boring.
