A spambot 'jagdev02' posted four ads in the 'general gaming' forum.

Suspected spambot "DavidDHall" - posts of generic praise, and a profile with a dating-site link in. (The one good thing is it likes Tetris.)

I suggest to put on watch-list.

Spambots seem to have developed a liking for this thread
, so I decided to lock it. There's no reason for users to post in it really.

The bald spambot 'fionaly' returns to spam again, list says 3, but I see 1 only:
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.p ... le&u=13325
I'm seeing fewer than listed spams here, and before this I noted some of the recurring bots seem to have this mismatch too.
Are they already deleted, or hidden somehow?

Yet another suspected spambot, 'HelenAllen', posting generic praise and adding a link with a dating site in its posting signature.
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.p ... le&u=13381
Also another version: 'RitaLucero', same thing with dating site in post/signature; though perhaps the posting it made was a properly baffled response to the thread content.

It seems that currently concatenated 'real' names, without spacing are used as their nametags.

Both have had their posts deleted and have been banned.

All of that junk moved to Trash Heap.
A question to forum admins: is there an option in this version of phpBB to change the CAPTCHA/spambot countermeasure to a custom question? That thing seems to be more effective in deterring spambots than pictures.

Been noticing a lot of "Fifa Coin" spam happening in here. They all link to the same site, so I've added that site's name to our list of spam words. Hopefully this puts a bit of a damper on the latest wave of spambots.

Posts moved to Trash heap as usual.

Holy spam, Batman! I added the url to our spam words list, banned the account, and removed all the trash.

Spammer with a link to an irrelevant site in profile:
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.p ... le&u=13437
Made a couple of vaguely on-topic posts in random chat threads.
