    Just a quick thanks...

    I wanted to say thanks to all the CA tech-wizards (and whoever else) is responsible for keeping things pretty clean around here spam-wise. It is clear from the occasional bots that do manage to get through just how much a site like this is under attack.

    Anyway, I raise a toast to you unsung CA heroes! Thank you! Stand strong...stand proud!

    We do it because we love the place. Can't wait for the new update and extra security. Off to ban another 100 before bed.

    Cheers from Slidell, Louisiana and here's hoping that the mods continue doing what they have been doing.

    Out of curiosity, do banned bots remain part of the member total?

    Hmmm good question. I think they actually might do,
    but any that I ban do not show up in the new members
    list as having joined when I do a search on that same day.

    Bots are becoming creative, sometimes hilariously so.

    As Black Spot said its a labor of love and it's true
    we destroy hundreds a day!

    They don't effect the number on the main page, but do on the members list.

    If you saw how bad the photography mob was overrun, you know the mods here have their work cut out for them. The spam bots are worse than a horde of angry zombies.
    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    We've just hit 50,000 bannings today. I personally lost count after my 35,000th one.

    Twitter is going after bot makers and another site has just shut a load of them down. Hopefully the tide is now turning.

    I also reported a transaction selling set up accounts to PayPal - twits posted the transaction number.
