It's high time to do it ! Bert is not going to be around forever to clean the trash.

On the same topic, I suspect we could catch 99% of spam right now by applying this rule:
If user's first post is a thread, and this post has "kitchen" anywhere in it or in the title, and it is not in the Prison Architect forum (because there's some legit kitchen threads in there), then instaban and remove thread.

I don't quite understand why there's so many spam threads about kitchens, hardly anything else.

Would you buy penis pills from the kitchen people?

I wouldn't buy them period, nor anything else advertised by a spam bot.

Actually, (in my humble opinion) bert has done more than enough for community, maybe it will be better if forums will be flooded with spam in order to make IV update their stuff (or at least make it clear they don't care).

I was curious as to why I can't find a "report post" button. I thought that was a standard feature.

We care. Bert hasn't been the only one removing the spam ;)

Yeah, it sometimes feels like I'm the only one, but other times, I log on and there is barely any spam at all. Then I know I'm not.

It is, in PHPBB 3.

Not without writing code (for which I lack the relevant skills) and installing it on the server (for which I lack the relevant permissions), as far as I can tell.

Just so you know, I regularly swipe my flamethrower through here, but just haven't really had the time to actively post lately so I might seem a bit invisible. :)

Personally I expect the problem to largely go away when the forum is taught it's behind a reverse proxy so we can ban IPs again. But yes, that requires certain people to use certain permissions and phpBB expertise (hinthint). :P
