I just did a bunch of clean up of the spam bots. In addition to the ones already mentioned, there were some from Buy College Essays and Write College Essays or something like that.

I don't have access to ban the accounts, but I did delete like 60 posts from them.

If this keeps up, the BB admin will have to make it so that new users will have to wait for approval from the admin before they can post.

And while you may have gotten all that was posted before 4:01 MT, that was several hours ago now.

BTW, the main page says the BB had a record number of users online at same time this morning.

That's not a bad idea, or at least something like it. I just deleted a dozen more.

OK, it should require that I eyeball and approve new registrations for write privilege.

I will consider nuking the database of users without posts. We likely have thousands of existing user registrations that have been made by bots without follow-up to this point. If they are using a backlog, that could be difficult to keep up with.

Lou, Steve: thanks for dealing with the outbreak.

I've spent yesterday and today packing for travel.

I'd recommend that you do this thing. It's not like you need to be signed up merely to view posts, right? Just to make posts?

We arrived back home in Michigan about 5:30 AM on Thursday. Having a truck whose heating system is acting up is a strong motivator to get the transit over with quickly.
