    Yeah, what's going on? Isn't there a captcha in place or anything like that?

    Try replacing it with a better one

    People in third world countries literally get paid to subvert captchas. I doubt it'll help THAT much.

    Also, disable non-Alphabet input for Thread subjects. This is an English-only forum after all.

    It happens from time to time in various forms and unfortunately, there really isn't anything that can be done. Stop registration today? They'll just wait til tomorrow.

    Speaking of spam, I think we have it worse internally where people start talking about their dogs and cats and their dogs' cats after they run out of things to say.......

    Yeah, the 3DS/Gateway/Sky3DS forums are worse for shitposting. At least I can ban these Korean shysters.
