    You don't have to give spambots public infractions. You choose the option to Delete as Spam which should then give you the option to ban their account.

    That's quite a change you guys have going on. Great decision to have the majority of time zones covered. Hopefully this all works out well!

    Nightmare to stop is an understatement compared to what I dealt with. When the site was hacked back in 2008 the hacker erased the "banned IP" list. This is a continually growing list of known spammer IP addresses. When one is detected the IP is added to the list and the ability for multiple accounts to be created is now gone. Much easier then banning a new spam account every few hours. When this list was deleted hundreds of accounts began popping up and all hell broke loose. In order to deal with the sudden increase I instantly appointed 2 new Admins to combat the situation. It took weeks to repopulate that list.

    Lets just say that "spam" is a forever ongoing battle.

    I brought this up with one of the new admins that they should actively keep that thread updated. Gilly3 and I would always be on top of posting new spambot IPs that needed to be banned as they're usually tied to a dozen other accounts.

    Kept up to date and a backup of the list made every few days. After that attack I always kept a copy of the list in case something similar ever happened again. If it did the problem could be fixed in a matter of seconds.

    Are the old rules still going to be in place until the new rules come in?

    Because in that other thread the rules have definitely been close to being crossed, or even in some cases crossed, by members and staff members.

    I'm speculative of all the changes happening and will be looking forward to being proved wrong because the other outcome is going to be more than damaging for this community and website if it goes that way.

    Until the old rules have been replaced, assume the current rules are in effect. We may be in a 'grey area' right now as we transition, but the bottom line is that we want intelligent discussion.

    I think that should be a given right there. this site is about intelligent gaming discussion and that shouldn't change. I'm with you schaffin

    What current rules? No current rules have been defined. Only how they are going to be implemented has been spoken about.

    Agree with the intelligent discussion but not with this 'grey area'. How are people supposed to know when they are breaking the rules when there is no word of what they are?

    I believe we are meant to follow the existing rules until the new ones are implemented.
