    I live on the org, feeding off of what few thanks are tossed at my posts. It is up to you to make sure I don't starve.

    The spammers, dear god the spammers.
    In all these papers we see a love of honest work, an aversion to shams, a caution in the enunciation of conclusions, a distrust of rash generalizations and speculations based on uncertain premises. He was never anxious to add one more guess on doubtful matters in the hope of hitting the truth, or what might pass as such for a time, but was always ready to take infinite pains in the most careful testing of every theory. With these qualities was united a modesty which forbade the pushing of his own claims and desired no reputation except the unsought tribute of competent judges.

    I laughed when I saw a spammer was the first person to reply to this thread.

    That may be one of my favourite things ever to happen on this forum.

    We've been under heavy attack by spammers for about three weeks now. You can see a counter of the blocked bot registrations at the bottom of the index. That counter was in triple digits before the assault began. Yesterday was the worst day yet, with about 10,000 attempts on that one day alone. On a statistical level, our systems are doing very well and only a tiny fraction are getting through, but it's almost inevitable that some will manage it given the massive numbers we're fighting.

    [edit] I just added another layer of spam protection that should hopefully catch the few that the current system was missing. Even so, some may slip through. If you do notice some, please simply report the post as usual and be patient. Trust me, this is far more irritating for us to deal with than it is for you.

    It's not just TWC and us, it's a large number of forums all over the internet. Apparently forum bot attacks increased significantly back in August and have remained abnormally high since then. It only reached us in November.
