Shameless consumerism thread closed?

I'm guessing the "What was the last thing you bought?" thread was closed due to attracting too many spammers?


If that's the case I guess I could understand, considering the time and energy it would take to continually ban spammers.


Anyway, I'll use this opportunity to say I bought an air compressor.

Isn't that roughly the ratio for the whole forum?

nope, it isn't
it seems the bots are looking for keywords like buy etc
in those threads you will find many bots but as soon as it's about other things like AVS or skins you don't see many bots.
and don't forget that we already delete many posts or threads before you can actually see them.
Half of the bots never get to post anything

Funny thing, I just got a notification for a spam post (already deleted) in a "milkdrop not working" thread.

(And of course I didn't get any for your reply here.)

It's keywords, last post time, number of replies, plus some random factor so they don't all post in the same thread. And a well-written bot shouldn't post in a forum that's only visible to logged in users, but I think we got some spam in the bin too.
