I've noticed and I'm sure all of you have noticed the whole spamming thing increasing more and more on this site... They just dont seem to stop, and since there isnt always a mod around some really awful stuff can be exposed to "young and innocent" people (lol)
I was just thinking if we could do something about it, like include some kinda captcha or something to try and stop this crap... Please its really affeccting the overall community
well, i tried to be a mod :|. but no1 listens to me...i am online 24x7 and i can handle spammers that come when our great mods are sleeping back in the US(cos im in india)....i spend like 12 hours a day on this site =.=
Yeah, like some of these awful, nasty avatars floating around that people like perspex might see.

I know some others around here do the same (such as you and the aforementioned perspex).
I don't know about captcha or what it is, but it sounds good.
Is that something like the site "seeing" something like "ps8 brake dot com" (intentionally misspelled, so as not to lead people to a site that generates a tremendous amount of krap here) and blocking the post?
With that said, I would love to stick around and check some posts out...........but..........I just pulled in from a 16 hour work day in an extremely hot environment and want nothing more than a shower and a nice cool night of sleep!
Love you guys. :p
Hopefully I will get to check in and see what is happening around here tomorrow.
In-laws are about to fill up my house for the next week so my posts may be even more infrequent than they have been while they are in town.
Monkey has been bad.............he needs to be spanked soon! :)
I do my best on the spam. perspex, pm me your MSN or skype and I'll get you added as a mod.
cmon man, you really dont know whats captcha? lol, its that security check system on websites to control spam bots, before you can comment/register a profile etc. they ask you to see a stretched/twirled/twisted picture with numbers and letters on it and asks you to write it down. It wont let you proceed until you write it down correctly.

Yeah I would get this captcha up and running before the spam gets really out of control here. It's far too easy to get an account here.
i would delete all the spam at european time's afternoon when almost noones online so you guys can have a spamfree morning :D
but i guess i wont become a mod anyway.. (never)(ever)
Totally i think perspex should be a mod... Last week or so I saw actual ****ographic content posted in a comment... I'm online everyday on here, Im in class as i'm typing this lol. but really we should get some more people like perspex who are always online to monitor this kind of thing.
