I've updated the spam list.

There's really no point banning spammers anymore, they just keep coming back Crying

Ok, here is another spammer to add 'Ririn01':

http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=14177

Post contains *one* spam link hidden in an otherwise long quoted text, with a generic thanks framing.

---

(you missed 'Maya055' from the previous post - nonsense text with link)
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=14152

---

More new spammy posters:

Pokr2355
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=14179

Maya541
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=14180

And a frequent spam poster:

Fernandes
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=14130

Either the spam-filter modified the last post, or the bot is becoming self-aware.

---

(Another way to filter may be to hide new users first post until vetted by an admin, but that is probably equally time consuming.)

How about hiding identified spammers posts to everyone except themselves - maybe they will keep using the same userid and not create new ones so much.

Possibly make a spammer group of these guys so they can chat internally and perhaps see only their own posts it will keep the bots clueless and happy?

Testing something here, just created a section for spammers to post in as guests.. Posts are auto purged after a day.

How about automatically move new posts from already identified spammers to the new spam forum? (No matter where/what they post)

I like this idea. We'll make them easy to identify as spammers as well, in case one makes it back into the wild.
