One of these pests sent me a personal message the other day, take them off and ban them.

It’s spam Pete, calm yourself down.

I’m sure when 1 of the mods has time, these posts will be deleted and posters removed.

They have a life barring running this messageboard.

Then they'll start posting on the other forum's, it's getting beyond a joke. Hopefully something will be done sooner rather than later.

Do you include them in the roll of honour, Pete?

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

A surprising number of spambots are actually very clever, and they don't post in the top board on a forum as it's usually the most popular one and would therefore attract immediate attention.

Most of the point is to get backlinks from "reputable" (yeah, it's Uncovered...) sources in order to try and bump their scams up in search engines. They don't want to put it front and centre because it would be deleted too quickly to have the desired effect.

You asked a few weeks ago why there are loads of dormant accounts - here's your answer. Sleeper spambots waiting for instructions. I already have all reasonable measures in place to prevent them signing up, which is why a good number of them sign up via normal residental PCs compromised by other means - all we can do is react when they get through and start causing trouble.

There we go, deleted and banned all those accounts. They were all registered in 2015, by the way - before we really started ramping up the efforts to stop them signing up. Just sat there.

I've half a mind to purge old accounts if I can find something in the admin panel to do that, actually...

I do try and keep an eye out for the spam but I've been working night shifts
