It's not spam, it's related to the topic: the spammers. ROFL.

Here, sorry. I did that today. :oops:

CAPTCHA is being improved in the new version of phpBB. I've seen humans register here and advertise their products. They start saying "simba is cool" or something like that and then they put a bunch of links in their signatures.

But KK is right, please don't add spam to the spam topics ;)

Ugh, I sure hope those captchas only apply to certain things Moka. lol. I hate those things with a passion. :) It's bad enough on YouTube, since they don't have an alternative option other than the text word for those who might have a disability that doesn't allow them to work around them as easily. >.>

lol, I sure hope so Mike. :) Not that I post enough on here to actually run into captchas anyways if they were implimented to prevent mass posting but yeah, they still suck none the less. ^^

Yeah, CAPTCHA will only be for registration, sorry I didn't clarify :)
The CAPTCHA has been enabled on MLK's registration forever, so everyone had to do it at least once.

This kind of annoys me as well KK. I've learned now to stop replying to spam posts but I've noticed some people still post in those topics. :roll:

Well, first off, it is really annoying. All you do when you reply to a spam topic, is bump it. Now if there is bad material in that topic, your allowing more people to see it.

Second off, it's not a members right, to post stuff like that in a topic, there is such a thing as privacy.

Third off, once you've reported, the person is well aware that you've reported them, if they stay on here. Bots won't reply back, or even look over replys, and most spammers get on, post one message, and get off.

An lastly, once you post in their post it's counted as flamming/trolling/spam, depending on what you wrote, and then YOU can get in trouble.

Just saying. :)
