    EDIT BY BADGERBOY: Instead of creating a new thread about it, I just deleted the spam post before this and edited the title. This was started in hopes of getting the attention of TAAB or ahnt. The following is History’s reply to said spam attack.

    Could you please cut it out?

    Something needs to be done about these spam attacks NOW. I’m not sure if they are bots or human, or whatever they are. If they are bots, get better security. If they are human, give some mods banning power IMMEDIATELY so we can take care of these problems quickly. Of the three admins that have banning powers, ONE has disappeared (Zane), ONE doesn’t want to deal with forum drama, and the other hasn’t posted in 20+ days. ALLOW THE MODS TO BAN THESE SPAMMERS. They are getting increasingly worse and harder to take care of everyday.

    I repeat, GIVE SOME MODS BANNING PRIVILEGES IF YOU AREN’T GOING TO TAKE CARE OF THE SPAMMERS YOURSELF.

    Sorry for being so rude about it, but this is getting more and more frustrating everyday.

    I wouldn’t mind being an admin. I’m confident in my ability to make this forum a better place.

    EDIT: I deleted a good chunk of the giant amount of spam that was made, but there’s no way I can get all of that at this moment. We need to take another form of action.

    EDIT: He seems to be posting often. I deleted everything out of getting started a few minutes ago and there are already new threads popping up 😐

    As some wishful thinking, I wish that I were a mod(Hint, Hint), for I observe every post made on this site that I can have access to. But this is just some wishful thinking.

    I think badger and myself should both be admins or at least be granted to power to ban.

    And I think you could be a mod as well, at least until the spamming stops.

    This latest spammer has only posted from one IP, so banning him should theoretically stop it, but I don’t know too much about spambots (assuming this is a spambot, of course).

    Do we have any solution yet, TAAB? And why haven’t you even tried banning them?

    I forgot to add that Ahnt seems to have passed away as I have not heard back from him and he usually responds within 24 hours 🙁

    When you said he died in the chat, I thought you were joking.

    But I doubt he actually died.

    Yea I know he probably isn’t dead, it’s a figure of speech.

    I am sorry to say that you shouldn’t be trusted with admin powers, doc.
