Default Do Not Post in Spam Threads!!!!

Please do not post in spam threads. It makes it a lot harder to delete threads and spam bots, as we have to go through every post these morons put stuff in, and we may accidentally delete you as well. Just leave it alone, usually we get them here pretty fast anyway.
Thanks

Sorry. I did post in one recently.

But based on a pattern of recent posts I've seen here, some of the spammers seem to be from Russia's 'divide & conquer'-lite division of cyberwarfare. Those would be the ones who aren't trying to sell you anything or push malware, but to create and manipulate discussions and hence, public opinion. It's been in the news, especially as US midterms come, and scarily enough, it's been working.

Anyway, I wonder if adding a captcha to the new acct signups would slow them down. vB probably has some up-to-date tools you all could hack in or something.

maybe. I did suggest a question and answer as part of the signup, maybe it's too easy, or they are getting in some other way. Still, very rarely it happens now since changes were made.
