So, I probably just did a big no-no and suspended registrations until we can figure out how to stop the spam bots. Hopefully the Mighty One will have mercy on me. [Frown]

is the spambots all in regards to wikileaks anti-backwash? might wanna post instructions on how to request to join alternately (the long winded way). and we have 35 guests atm. is that a DANGER to Flare? kinda like the shit happening to other, more famous sites?

The internet has become a scarier place now that the L33T H4CK3RS are in fury.

So, it may be time to delete all my on-line shopping accounts then... or at least the ones that store credit card info.

i think i would be easier to ask your card holder to mail a new card/number...

I think it would easier to just release Cobra Commander and then follow him to their secret hideout(it's usually in some giant cobra-themed natural formation, visible from space).

That or it's just a new breed of spambots hitting at roughly the same time this other nonsense is going down- after all, it's not like that Jullian guy is really that Becky person and we degraded his online alternate-lifestyle-alter-ego....right?


I mean...what are the odds?
(sorry Jullian!)

I often see spambots attacking en masse forums which are abandoned or have little activity, allowing them to spread without fear of moderators shutting them down. I'm guessing this is the case with Flare, where the spambots are assuming no one's home.

Maybe we should open the forum up to to discussing high-school vampire crap.
 
Posted by MinutiaeMan (Member # 444) on :
 
That would make me want to stake myself.

well, if zombie-trek comics are the rav, high school vamp crap isnt that far fetched...

i didnt say that.

Given the number of spambots I've had to ban from the mostly-dead hockey comm on LJ I help maintain?

Yeah, this is about it. Although at least here the shit ends up on top of everything, so it's easy to find. This one year-old post keeps piling on spam I have to delete, and the only reason I know it's getting spammed is because I'd started tracking it a year ago to avert a flamewar.

These spider hacking things make me think of giant mechanical spiders attacking at the windows of Flare. And the Flare forums are a giant glass-covered sky-scraper. Has anyone been down to the lobby and checked the doors? Hrmm. Maybe it's more like the Cloverfield moster!?! [Smile]

Gawd, get a load of the recent new members names too. They're beginning to adapt! Can someone modulate the forum shield frequency??

So which one of us is the girl who gets bitten by the giant ticks and explodes [Smile]
 
Posted by Pensive's Wetness (Member # 1203) on :
 
can someone explain what exactly happened to her (and does any terrestial poison do the same?)
 
Posted by Mars Needs Women (Member # 1505) on :
 
I think it was explained the tick secreted a substance which coagulated blood, and she got an overdose which brought her blood pressure to such a high level she burst. MMM...Fruit Gushers. It sort of like what happens when a mosquito bites you, but on an extreme level.
 
Posted by Jason Abbadon (Member # 882) on :
 
I think it made people explode in direct proportion to how much of a total bitch they are...it's amazing that girl did not take out the whole city.
 
Posted by Pensive's Wetness (Member # 1203) on :
 
well to make sure this stays up on top (because eventually someone who actually isnt a bot will want to join... i hope). perhaps instructions on how to join, after verfying your not a fucking spambot...?
 
Posted by Pensive's Wetness (Member # 1203) on :
 
there's like 32 guests on the main page. all they all bots? NM. i forgot that i liked my xmas thread on facebook... and since i recently friended like a billion people (mostly navy associates)...
 
Posted by Jason Abbadon (Member # 882) on :
 
So...it's your fault!
(guys, get the torches, I'll tie him to the stake)

is there any way to fortify the internet tubes? the series of tubes that leads to this site?
 
Posted by Fabrux (Member # 71) on :
 
Maybe? I don't know, to be honest. Not sure what kind of arrangements the Bearded One has in place...
 
Posted by Cartman (Member # 256) on :
 
no intertube fortification holds against the continuous erosive force of one billion dungeoned Chinese hacking away at it, like water in time eclipses even the mightiest rock

be water, my friend
