Some of us come in to join the club, too, but not enough of us to keep the place active. I'm doing my best. The more company, the better. But even within the couple of years I've been here, this seems to be an unusually slow time.

Every time a baby laughs, a fairy is born.

So if we just got babies to laugh more often, could we keep the fairy population going via a laughing-to-unbelief ratio? Wink

I agree or as a last resort, giving these spammers a taste of their own medecine.

Then on the other hand, isn't it strange these spam bots arrived after all these years on the FAC forum and we ask for spam bot control? I'm not into conspiracies theories but I wonder...?

If there's any good news, the bots cannot submit pictures (they just wind up in the approval queue, and are immediately identified as such) and the staff tool for looking up an account's comment history is more robust.

That being said, these forums are running on a very old (by now) version of the software, so the tools to deal with these kinds of incidents are a bit limited.

You're not the only one. I'll feel the same way. I'll check the Wayback Machine for archived copies like this one.
