We are having massive problems with spambots in this forum. Its a sad truth that as soon as you put something onto the net, this damn scum comes to pester you. At the moment we are not very good at kicking them out. Although they hardly get to post anything, more than 50% of all *new* users are such spambots.

At the moment these are banned automatically, but they are deleted manually. Now I have registered, that the system reports some false positives, on other word bans real users. Please send an e-mail if this occurs and dont be too upset. The filter will be changed to be less agressive right now, but I still can not garuantee, that no further errors occur.

The whole issue is beeing dealt with, but progress is rather slow, because these bots dont cooperate well for immediate testing of any actions taken ;) .

Hello Mr. Spambot, let me just post this normal message here, ok? Stop banning me whenever you see me post something.

Thanks...
