That's a gross exaggeration.  I know there's been several times where I've addressed spam well up to 4-5am CST in the night.  :\  Obviously not every night, but yeah.

This - With my stepping down and Blowi's vacation, there are currently no EU mods. So during these hours, unless somebody is up late, there is nobody to keep an eye on the spam.

They're doing a great job trying to keep ontop of it, though :).

Doing great but not good enough.

There is no second prize.  It's first place or last place.  Up your game.
I'm always right.

It's actually less beneficial than you may think for you to report it. The way spam is removed is through mass tools, where as reports are thread specific.

That's not to say it's not helpful to provide an alert about spam.

It helps a lot to report it as I don't venture outside of OT a lot and it makes me aware of the other subforums when they get taken over.  Please keep reporting it.

And thank you.

i take it you guys usually rely on shredbans for most of that kind of stuff?

eg. a ban that when applied also deletes every thread/post from account?

There are two steps that I take when dealing with the spam.

1) Flag as spammer -- This makes it so the posts/threads are unapproved essentially.  They're hidden from view for regular users.
2) Infraction - Infracting the spammer as "Bot Spam", makes it so the thread is hidden from view, mods included and it creates a note of it in the mod infraction section.

Doing those two things essentially removes them from the forum and all said posts/threads at once, yes.

seems a bit light. back when i ran a vbs i'd do some work checking the ip ranges of the offending spammers and whether or not banning the whole fucking thing would affect any users, then go from there.

It doesn't matter, they're using proxies.  It's been a long known issue and if it were as something as simple as that, it would have been implemented by now.  :\  I do appreciate the idea and I'm sure the admins do as well but it just isn't that easy of a fix, sadly.

yeah, i ran in to the same issue. i eventually had to make auth only forums. i suppose in a situation like this, forcing a captcha or account creation to first post delay is all you can really do. in the case of thomason(the dick pic guy) i'd just fuckin IP ban him outright though.
