https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XRumer

anyone knows how to block them outright? lololol

please :D

ps- wikipedia sez best way is to mod-approve fist post to see through the non-sequiturs and bullshit:

The spam messages in a forum typically take the form of "link spam" which will often be included in older topics and private messages (PMs) leaving the newer threads and posted messages "clear" of apparent spam. Sophisticated spammers will copy posts from other areas of the site, giving the appearance of a valid, on-topic reply. The best clue that it is a spammer is that the links in the user profile are completely unrelated to the forum topic, and the posted messages, while seemingly within the general topic of the forum, will be non-sequiturs and out-of-place within the topic thread. Alternatively, the spammers post generic "I am excited to begin posting and contributing here." messages that are content-neutral.

!@#$%! 01.31.2020 05:36 PM

seriously guys you need to curb the easy registration and first post to prevent this silliness that’s overwhelming everything

also, remove personal websites and IM contact from profiles, so that the incentive to advertise is neutralized

I’ve just banned this user but doubt it will do any good. Unfortunately I can’t change the registration process here. I’m deleting about 10 spambots a day which you never see but I know there’s plenty that slip through the net. Keep on reporting them and I’ll keep on banning them...

Thanks Stu, we appreciate your hard work, we’ll keep flagging them, and let us know if we can help in any other way.
