    Spam Bot Attack

    As some of you might have noticed, the board is under sustained attack by spam bots. I'm doing my best to delete them as they arrive but I won't be able to monitor things constantly.

    If you see a spam post, just ignore it, don't respond to it or report it. It will be cleared out when I'm able.

    Thanks!

    Normally you would indeed Report spam posts. In this case, it's unnecessary.
    The most important thing is not Replying to or acknowledging spam posts in any way (it simply means more clean up work)

    It's a sad day when a mod takes away an old man's only jollies.

    DE, seriously, you don't have to report them this time. Thank you for your efforts though.
