Bloody Bots...

Post by Joseph » Sun Aug 05, 2012 2:24 pm

Damn things are getting smarter every day.

For ages we were fine with the CAPTCHA Q&A, where a question is asked during registration and an answer is required. Now, well, I've been deleting quite a few over the past week. Magnus, have you killed a few as well? I swear there were some where I said "I'll get it later" only to find it gone when I came back.

Anyhow... I hate them and my the Angler take those behind their insidious ways. :angler:

Yeah, I killed a bunch of 'em this morning. Took me a while though, since I'm a bit rusty when it comes to using the admin tools :)
I do bugger-all, but that's OK;
I sleep all night, and I read all day!

What we need to do is get more members, find a way to be as active as we once were so you can refresh your admin skills by BANNING people!!! Good times I tell ya!

just saw a google feedfinder bot. Tried giving him cookies but he wouldn't accept them

Wow that pun was bad

I'm not even sure what a Feedfinder is. I think it's like subscribing to a thread but who the heck would have a feedfinder for our forums?

Nine actually but yeah, we're not exactly lighting the place up.

Oh, and I forgot to say I did like your cookie joke.

Thanks, was wondering if subtlety wasn't my expertise

Well, the majestic uk bot is pretty old. Nothing sneaky about it.

However... the real majestic was just on the forums for several minutes. Didn't post though. Try summoning him again. He appeared a day after you thought of him. Maybe your second summoning spell will get him posting. ;)
