There's a trend, I've recently discovered, for spam sites to add members to UBB forums. The fake users will have links in their sigs which drive traffic back to the spam sites, and improve those sites' Google rankings. The bot accounts do nothing except fill up database space and inflate membership numbers.

It is this forum's policy that:

1) Any spam messages on the board will be deleted, unless they are sufficiently entertaining as to make up for the misuse of database space;

and

2) Any URL in a signature which links to a site that the admin team deems to be spam-related (examples so far have been illegal offshore gambling, mail-order brides, and something vaguely incomprehensible involving currency exchange) is not permitted. Exceptions will absolutely be made for users who participate in the forum. (Basically, if I can get a reasonable answer as to why you've got this dumb-ass thing in your sig, I won't bug you. If you're a bot, you get BALEETED.)

The first step for admin will be deleting the suspect URL, while leaving the account alone. If you have a legit URL in your sig which vanishes, please let me know that I've made a mistake, and I'll reinstate. If you persist in posting links to obvious spam and other useless or potentially virus-filled crap, your account will be BALEETED.

I gots no time for spambots.

So it looks like the spambots have figured out how to crack the phpBB3 entry page - that's two I banned this morning. I'm going to see what I can do to add another couple of registration filters or something to keep them out, but in the mean time, if you see a post that seems to be a bot (odd link in the sig, replies that have no context, etc), flag that post with the little red exclamation point down in the bottom right hand corner of each post's window. That will flag it for my attention and I can either approve or remove the post/spambot/user as appropriate.
