Dude, if you want to talk poker, just start a damn poker thread, not six thousand separate ones.

Keep calm and move along.

mikethor mentioned that. I just didn't think it acted like the other bots we had seen.

Eh, I expect that his posts will go poof in a day or two. Along with this whole thread.

Yarr.  I may be working my ass off at work and never around, but I do make sure to get in and deal with reports when my email goes boom!

Put in 82 hours in 5 days the other week...  Yeah... That was a tough week.

I don't know if you guys already have this, but there's a mod for SMF that pretty much proofs the registration against spam bots. I cut down thousands of pages of bots on my forum to 0 with it.

Yeah... I have it already...  The ones you see are the ones it misses.  Our old hosting got locked one day because I hadn't put the bot blocker on a test board and then forgot about it.  No links to it anywhere.  No idea how they found it.  One month...  50,000 posts of bots trying to sell excrement to each other, and three posts from me that said "test".

And that's just a wee bit off the tip of the iceberg.
