    Is it just me, or have there been more spambots attacking the forum? Maybe it's just me. But, the newest registered user is Shopritestore, can't be anything but a bot.

    There's been intermittent surges of spambot activity over the past year or so.

    Something to do with the amount of topics and/or posts?

    No clue. I know fuck-all about coding, HTML and phpBB. It could just as well be magic.

    I urge war on Caladon. It's the only way.

    I would imagine the "actual" only way involves an elaborate deception starting with the aerial bombing of a zeppelin somewhere over a mountain range, with the end result being a random person eventually banishing themselves to the spambot void and destroying the scripted evil.

    Or joining forces with the spambots to usher in a new spam world order.

    I'm down. Just point me in the right direction and I will end them with nonsensical schizoid musings.

    I'd send Philes to take out the zeppelin but I think he would prefer the role of Ristezzere. Smuel seems to have a self destructive streak so I'm sure he will be fine with flying into it.

    Someone's gotta be the token crazy giant douchebag in the first town. Might as well be me! I'll pay you 12 gold for that full set of plate armor! But I'll also trade vital information for an old boot!

    You know, the parallels are quite striking, now that I think about it.

    Hmmm...can a sort of capcha system be incorporated in account creation? Not that the latest phone seller is a bot. The name kinda tipped me off.
