Yikes! I've been deleting as many of their posts as I can (one posted on the April Fools' forum and I don't have mod powers there), but they're proliferating quickly and I have to go to bed soon. Sorry. :( Still, it's good to know that they'll be gone for good soon!

I recommend Anti-Spam ACP It integrates Akismet and a crowdsourced database of spam IP's. You can find it at: http://www.lithiumstudios.org/forum/vie ... f=31&t=941

We haven't gotten any new ones since this morning...maybe we've finally beaten them! O.O

That would be a cause for celebration indeed!

While spambots here on the forum seem to have disappeared once again, I just had an encounter with one. I got a spambot review left for me on LyokoFreakersFiction (on my story Hazed, along with four others, if you care to take a look: http://lyokofreak.net/lff/reviews.php?type=ST&item=12). Odd, huh? Not sure what can be done there, but I know that it's over my head. Maybe the user's account got hacked, or a spambot actually created an account with a name (Lester) that makes sense.

It's all very scientifical. |D

Just deleted the first spambot on the forum since the new anti-spam measures were put in.

I have a feeling I'm gonna like using this.

This guy's a spambot who got past and actually made posts. I deleted all three, but here's the profile link:

Weird, that one made it past earlier and made posts. I deleted it, but evidently it got back. I'm gonna whip out the banhammer there and do an IP ban. It shouldn't mess with us anymore.
