Moderator Reports

This is the place for moderators to report their actions. Mostly the bans and the reasons for it, but in case something else happens and has to be reported about, this is the place for it. Deleted posts still go in the post graveyard.

User ahakuwp64p banned for being a spambot and advertising. Post breaking our rules can be seen here.

Looks like we're going to have some spambots these days, so get ready for the ride, folks. We'll see if they get so out of control we need to start preventing them.

Before, we waited for the spambots to actually spam to get rid of them, but seeing that we have few obvious ones, we banned them.

Users vjidjim29x, Weekempaniono, aqlnpcdgm and afpwolbye all had IPs that were listed on various spammer lists. They all also had strange names with random strings of letters and numbers, and their emails were about the same with random periods thrown in. Some email addresses were the same but with different amounts of periods. We feel that it was enough proof that they weren't here to talk about tulpas, but to spam us with ads instead.

Users Nurcettenderb, Immucttob, Diexprerbrabs, LineOpino, sermweepemaip and doockejelsold have all been banned for spamming and advertising.

If you actually want to see their spam posts, they should be in the right order: here, here, here, here, here and here. For your reading pleasure.

I did say that we're going to have some spambots, eh?

I'm taking anti-spam action and banned zA5fR4gG5f for being an obvious spambot and also having its IP listed on spammer IP lists.

User somoCotte's IP matches LineOpino's and thus was automatically banned.

A guest with the name AventeeButh made this lovely spampost that did absolutely nothing seeing that there is no link. But, searching around, the IP matches that of known spammers, so the IP has been banned.

Guest user Johnd688 had their IP banned for posting an obvious spam message as can be seen here. They also have their IP on spammer lists, so it seems quite obvious. See how long it took us to start getting some more spam, huh.

Guest user Pharmb772 had their IP banned for posting a spam message, here. Also another IP found on known spammer lists. It seems like we're getting some spam from the same person now, so don't worry if you see these guest users post strange things in the forums where they're allowed to post. We'll handle it as fast as we can.
