Preacher, you remember at one point I was a moderator for this board. I've banned numerous spammers in the past.

Not much to "sniff out," really. We know there's a problem with the filter on the board, and when a "user" with a name like "Bkwnpfou" or "agiscaransiliR" is registering, it's a pretty safe bet it's a bot. We just have to be here to catch them before they can post their . Kinda hard to do at times as they're coming at all hours of the day and night and there's only 2 of us. We've nailed almost 250 of them since Wednesday.

We're handling things pretty well, Duke. Gary and I are basically taking "shifts" on the board so that we can still have somewhat of a personal life outside of this board. Most of 'em post their garbage in the wee hours of the morning and I am usually up at 6 AM or so and don't see it until I log on.

Nope - no word on Mike. I'm really starting to get concerned. Gary and I have both emailed him numerous times with no response which is highly unusual.

I have known about those bots fansince. You think I have never moderated a board before? jk man. I knew they existed. The last one was a joke.

I just e-mailed him to.

Also Hometown, there was a situation that Mike couldn't log on until LATE in the season before when I was a moderator here.
