    That link when right-clicked save as spews out a bunch of HTML. I'm not going to bother deciphering it: it's equally as possible that for direct clicks they serve up something innocuous.

    Don't use super random web sites for images. If they've got ads, it's fairly likely their ad vendor will be compromised at some point.

    Can we jail idiots who are too stupid to realize DO NOT REPLY TO BOT THREADS? Nobody is going to read your horrible one liner, and you just attract more bots for the next while. Don't abuse flag button, don't post/reply in bot threads, and don't anger @Neesa or question her birthday thread, is this too much to fucking ask?

    I think it'll keep the idiots from replying to obvious bot spam.

    I'm assuming we can still mark bot topics as spam otherwise the button will have no use whatsoever.

    I say that as a precaution.

    Best to just ignore bot threads, and just contact a mod via other means.
    "You embarrass me," said Shadow, smiling. Then Shadow took his penis out and picked Cream up. "Let me charge up for a super ejaculation!" Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    That's correct. Any post with five spam flags automatically gets brought to moderator attention in the Spam dashboard.

    This is also why flagging an actual user with the Spam flag will tend to get you infracted: only use the Spam flag on bots. But do use it on bots.

    Yeah, replying to bots is bad and will get you at least a week timeout.

    Is there perhaps a way to limit the amount of new threads an account can make, in a certain time limit? Would be an interesting way to prevent these bots from blowing up the forums like this. Just noticing it's only a few bot accounts posting all these threads, so that would possibly limit the damage.

    Also, maybe have a mod who ok's new people who join the forum? That way when you somebody like "WetFart69" you can be like 'yeah he is probably a person', yet when you see accounts like "sajklgqweherewnhaehqwor" it's probably safe to assume that's not a real account.

    That's already in place.

    Sure, but there a limited number of mods so that turns out to be a pain in the ass.

    Is email verification already standard? There's been an increase in bot posting and I think that might help out if not already established. If not that then maybe captchas before creating a thread.

    What's up with banning ppl for using "wtf" and "off topic" buttons? :wtf:

    I get the flag abuse,but If something is "wtf" worthy or "off topic" then what's the harm in using them? Why even have them if can't use them? Wtf means wtf so if I see it's wtf-ish then I'm gonna use "wtf" button. Hella dumb to punish honest users for something that hurts nobody. :bluu:

    Why would you try to use flags to moderate? That's what moderators are for.

    And yes, people kept crying about the flags, with some misanthropes then gleefully using their frustration as an opportunity to needle them further. Wiz posted up a ways back "stop abusing them or you're going to lose them." A great way to get people to stop crying/needling each other after people were told "stop crying/needling each other or these toys will be removed" is to simply remove those particular toys.

    Sure, but is that productive? Aren't most people idiots when they first show up? Seems to me it takes a little bit to figure out how to fit into GD.

    How about if someone puts a post in the Rules: Read Before Posting Thread: No introduction threads. The reason they do it is because nobody tells them NOT to. Nobody cares for these threads. Somebody should say SOMETHING. The ridicule the newbs get in their intro threads is FAR from productive, and could cause them to leave from alienation from the get-go (if you're worried about newbies being chased away).

    Can you make it so people on your ignore list are gone completely? Seems pointless to have somebody on ignore, and yet you still see them post and they can still derail a thread and you still see their posts through quotes, or by moving your mouse over their post.

    Forget trying to pass for normal. Follow your geekdom. Embrace nerditude. In the immortal words of Lafcadio Hearn, a geek of incredible obscurity whose work is still in print after a hundred years, “Woo the muse of the odd.” You may be a geek. You may have geek written all over you. You should aim to be one geek they’ll never forget. Don’t aim to be civilized. Don’t hope that straight people will keep you on as some sort of pet. To hell with them. You should fully realize what society has made of you and take a terrible revenge. Get weird. Get way weird. Get dangerously weird. Get sophisticatedly, thoroughly weird, and don’t do it halfway. Put every ounce of horsepower you have behind it. Don’t become a well-rounded person. Well-rounded people are smooth and dull. Become a thoroughly spiky person. Grow spikes from every angle. Stick in their throats like a pufferfish. -Bruce Sterling

    What did I tell you about new users with smiley avs like a year ago? Block new users with smiley avs until you find a way to tighten up registration (maybe with something like multi-picture captcha (click on all images of capcom characters or something), that needs a human to do, we wouldn't be getting spammed right now. I knew that bots can easily use smiley avs.
