it seems the entire Offtopic forum is being polluted by the user Dalinapa. At least two pages, possibly three of junk.

Yup, that one keeps popping up and we keep cleaning up after it.

To whoever has the power to delete accounts: please delete Dalinapa. It appears to be an automated spammer which sends a new post to the forum approximately once every 6 minutes. Banning the IP address would probably also help, because now Dalinapa knows we're completely open to spammers, deleting the account will likely only be a temporary solution until it signs up again under a new name.

If you go to the board index page, you'll find that loads of spambots are having their birthdays again.

Including, apparently, our old friend Walteruterine.

We really need to get banning back. Wish we could actually delete some of these useless spam accounts.

It would be very useful to get banning by IP back, too. There are several different accounts all posting from the same IP address (79.141.160.94) regularly contaminating various threads under the "Other Miniatures Games" section.

A lot of spambots are celebrating their birthdays today. I thought it was interesting.

Masses of spambots cluster at the bottom of the board index page, new spambots appearing daily.

Fortunately, only a half dozen of them seem to post - and that is less frequently than it was last year. However, the sheer number of spambots - over 240 some days - does concern me.

Several posts in this section that were done today are SPAM. I am just unsure how to post a URL for specific posts. Sorry.

No real need, we check this section of the forum and will normally see them anyway. But thanks for reporting them.

Just got a spammer turn up on this actual thread.
I think the choice of words I just used out loud would get me disbarred from this forum if they ended up written down here.
