The spammers

It depends, there are two kinds, internet-wise.

There's a good bot, that searches the forum for posts. (The ones at the bottom). These could help people find you through that search engine.

The bad bot though, is a program created by an advertisement company, to go and post adds around wherever they can get too.

Then sometimes, it's actual humans that spam. It's kind of like those collect calls. They usually do it for their company, as to not get in trouble. Some of the humans spammers do it, just to be buttholes. Their usually the overweight guys, who have no life, and sit at home at the computer all day hacking people/spamming forums, because they got nothing to do in their parents basement.

Well thanks so now i know but i think that those guys in their basements would be scary to meet o.O they could be a stalker. o.o Only if the bots at the bottom could delete those who are the bad bots.


That would be cool.

So far while being here I have yet to see spam for the recent months but I'm rather disappointed with the goings around here ocassionally.
1.Whats with the Drama?
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4247&start=30
2.Attitude
[url=http://www.mylionking.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=6145[/url]
3.Minor trolling
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=5848&start=10
I don't wish this web to be a eventual trolling breeding place.
It all starts from a spam thread. I seen it a lot of times. I came to this website and the Pride Forum because I WANTED to get away from trolling, I HAD enough of it and was tired or trashing my cyber image.

It's unfortunate... but the mods can't see everything that goes on. If you see stuff like this, do them a favor, and report it. This forum is a bit... drama-filled sometimes, but overall it's a very fun place too be.

That's a good idea. I'm sure the forums will get better with this new rule! :)

No matter where you go online there will be drama. The only difference is how much and how we react to it.

Most of the time they just want attention and are trolling, so just ignore it.

Exactly but what I mean is that if people continue to react then they will become trolls themselves.
