  1. whats with all these weird posts with garble.....i see them all over on different forums.

    is it these dreaded 'robots' we try so hard to avoid?
  2. Yup and I do my best removing them as quickly as possible. If / when you see them, can you report them as spam so myself and other mods can get rid of them.

  3. Are they able to bypass your captcha's?
  4. Yes... Unfortunately captcha is rather easy to get around if you know what you're doing. I've been able to stop most posts, except for the dredded periods and sometimes random characters, but it hasn't stopped them from creating accounts, updating their profile with random garbage. I police posts, new accounts, profile updates, etc., as best as I can, but if members can flag things as spam when I miss things, I'll appreciate it.
