Thanks Bill for being the frontline sentinel against Spambots. They are like Ebola. Bad joke but the truth is if not stopped early, they become endemic.

WalteRove looks like another spambot: memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=61

English name,
Location: Moldavia
Work in construction
Website: Lyrics.uz (music lyric sheet in Cyrillic)
Cyrillic (Russian) signature; [google translate] Dance Dad and daughters, kingdergarten to tears.
No posts yet

From what I've seen in the other forum I frequent, it's usually a good indicator of a spammer/spammbot. The Cyrillic tend to be a dead giveaway...that and chinese characters.

Thank you Boneguard and friends. I will discuss with Fifty on technical options to tackle this Spambot menace.

And as we battle these Spambots, we also offer sincere apologies to any real fans of Orbis Terrarum that may accidentally get caught in the net. :?

Meanwhile..if anyone can practice real magic can you curse the spammers for me with some type of a painful and smelly medical condition?

"May the fleas of a thousand camel move to his/her crotch"

How's that for a curse?
