New right here, I just wished to say hello

I am energized to be among the brand new people with your forums, and hopefully I'll uncover enough time to remain around.

Hello, welcome to the forums, make yourself at home, I really hope you're not a script, but I suspect you are.....especially since you felt the need to post in three separate threads with minor variations on the same post.

Maybe it's nice that questionable entities are polite?

True, they could be really rude or tell us to worship SATAN or something

I too find it hard to understand the motive behind using a 'script' to engage the forum and it's members.
there is no telling what you could find if you had a link to follow.

if AOA was getting a reward for hits, I would learn how and spam hell out of the place.
if I could pad my post count with one, I'd give it a go.

I can only assume that someone was testing some new bot code. It was shortly after these guys showed up that we started getting hammered with spammers.

"Hammered with spammers." Does not have a nice ring to it.

It's settled down substantially since I wrote the new CAPTCHA code.

gotta love "captcha" and "recaptcha" codes.
Are those in use with new registrations?
I havn't seen them when posting

Yeah, they are for registering. ReCAPTCHA's broken though, although Google refuse to admit it. The spammers figured out how to bypass it.

For that matter, I had to pretty substantially rework vBulletin's CAPTCHA code, because the spammers had figured out how to bypass it fairly effectively as well.

that is pretty crazy....
spammers spending all this time trying to find "workarounds" to spam some more.
I have better things to do...
don't most people?
Oh well, I had setup recaptcha on a website once, but if it doesn't work anymore... I'll have to look for the newest thing
