Weird Posts


Seems like there are some very odd posts being made. Not your average viagra adds and no links so it doesn't seem like a virus.

Are any moderators able to look into this?

All I can do is delete them as they appear.

I was a bit remiss with that for a while, but I have caught up now.

I don't have sufficient authority on the site to look into the matter further, unfortunately.

I don't know if you're able to do this, but the Drivin' N' Cryin' forum has a fill-in-the-blank-type question rather than a CAPTCHA, where they have you complete a song lyric/title ("Wrapped in Sky," in this case, I believe). You have to get the right answer to join the boards, and to my knowledge, they've never had any bots, so maybe that's what's working for them. I wouldn't know how to implement that, but maybe someone else might, if that's something that seems worthwhile for the sake of making the Fountains of Wayne boards easier to manage.



Don't go away mad... Just go away.

I am still deleting all these posts. :)

Hopefully I can work out a way to stop them!
