Noticed this user/ spambot by the name of "Faurfabarfsog", that AI user didn't follow the guidelines (The post contained unsafe for general viewing material.).

Is there a way to prevent things like this from happening ever again?

Thanks for the message.

We have actually instituted additional levels of security to prevent spambots. Of course, there are isolated cases where the spammers would register manually; we are taking care of this as soon as they are caught by one of the admins/mods.

We do still need your help, if anyone sees any level of spam, please give us a shout.

Thank you!!

Yes, make spammers e-mail public.

Just was on eBay and found these funny clips about preventing scam attacks ( if it becomes that bad! ;) )
