    The hell's going on here? That's 3 consecutive spambot postings in the course of 5 minutes or so. Your guys's opinions?

    I know it's the wrong section, but it's this section that they're posting. And you're right, it's gotta be the new releases that's drawing them in like flies to horse shit. But still, it's reeeeeally annoying.

    They attack when they feel like it. They must really feel like it. [​IMG]

    Weren't they previously in the GBA - Game Help, Hints and Tips section?

    Think so, but they definitely seems to be drawn towards the GBA section.

    Maybe because the GBA section isn't that active?

    Something really needs to be done about them. Some of the threads they have posted would scar the younger GBAtemp members for life.

    I have been reporting as many of them as quickly as possible, but I think one person is behind them

    I think we IP Ban them, but it doesn't work. It might be more than one person, or the same person masking their IP Address. [​IMG]

    Oh, I remember a while back I also saw one in the PSP subforum advertising a LOT of download links for ISOs. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if it was some agency trying to take down pirates.

    That was most likely spam to get you to sign up for a Usenet account somewhere like...well, I cant mention the site name, but its one that normally comes up when you search for that kind of stuff.
