What's up with all the random spam on RMN right now?

I'm on it. A topic about it doesn't help though. XD

Exciting, but ultimately pointless.

Apparently this happened earlier. I told Liberty about it on Slack a few minutes ago and



Apparently they're all for stupid shit like the Chinese lottery, horse racing, casinos, etc.
Gamergaters sent their bots on us I think.

Who/what are they?

Maybe this:

"#GamerGate" is an online movement ostensibly concerned with ethics in game journalism and with protecting the "gamer" identity.

That's definitely the last time we talk about women's cheekbones around these parts!

I don't see why this has anything to do with Gamergate. I suppose it wouldn't surprise me if it does have something to do with Gamergate because anything even remotely related to either "side" of that mess is a giant pile of wank, including that Gawker article. Blechblechblech.
I just blame everything on gamergate. If I wake up and it's raining I clench my fist and go "damn you gamergate" at the sky.

Lol, but seriously I think the banning power for at least bots should be handed out. Like a temp ban thing or something to control something like this. (ie. temp ban would stop someone from posting for 24 hours.)
It's multiple accounts at different IPs, so we don't have a handle on it quite yet :)

We have a good spread of moderators as far as time-zones go. This is just unfortunate (and incredibly annoying) timing. Unless I'm thinking that more of the staff members have the right to ban people than actually do.

EDIT:

But hey, if kentona wants to elevate me from "guy who writes angry reviews" to "guy who angrily bans bots" then I'm okay with that.

I remember Kentona once saying only he and ankylo could ban.

But in situations like this I think it would be okay for any admin to ban.

Should we retaliate? I could try to alter all their links to lead to here instead.

As far as I can tell, it's random gibberish. Unless if the Koreans started using Chinese characters and Japanese kana again...
Don't worry, I have the ability to ban the bots. Just gotta know they're there first. ;p

I hammered this lot but it won't stop new IPs from popping up. One of them was the same IP though, so I permabanned the shit out of that. It won't be back til about 2055, no worries~

I choose to believe that this is the case.
I've seen spam you people wouldn't believe... XD

But none of the posts were individually monolithic, which goes against the entire essence of XAND.
The amount more than makes up for that. No, seriously. In the Latest Posts area there was well over 13 pages just full of spam. We've managed to finally beat it down to about 5 pages but it's been well over an hour of work between we staff who are on, so... you can just imagine the load. >.<;


If you want an idea of how bad it is, check the Archives. The poor things are full of bot topics. ;.;

All in the span of like 20 minutes!

Were they across the fora, or just confined to one or two subfora?


The balance has been restored. All is as it should be.


Some were in general discussion and some in videogames. I wasn't paying that much attention - just went through the newest posts list and hammered what was there.
