Too early? But....I'm already about to be on my third cup of coffee.

But, yes...context for youngsters....If I recall correctly, there was a spammer who used to hit the Off Topic section with stuff like babajblackmagiclove type posts. It was....entertaining

And for all you Country fans out there...

(To the tune of "Ain't Goin' Down 'Til the Sun Comes Up", by Garth Brooks)

Six o'clock on Friday mornin'
Spammers don't know it is comin'
'Til the hammer comes a-slammin'
Takin' out those who are spammin'

Watchin' Star Wars teasers and then list'nin' to the radio
Bannin' silly spammers, this is Paizo's kinda rodeo
Lisa's on the front lines screamin' out her warnin'
Spam had better not be still here when I look tomorrow mornin'!

Spam comin' on as the sun comes up
Bans gettin' clicked, but is it enough?
Hammer smashin' down, coz we're gettin' roooooough.
Spam comin' on as the sun comes u-up.

Nah, if it was a trap, I'd've linked to this.

(Probably only actually a trap for Feiya.)

Yeah, draw that out over a couple of hours and you're pretty accurate although my shift has largely been quiet today and yesterday


Did the spammers have anything to do with the site's "indigestion"?

Silver Crusade System Administrator

Nope. It was a hardware issue on the isp's side. =)


Gotcha. Thanks!

So, just so you guys know, we're going to be spot checking the site this weekend but not doing major monitoring unless things pick up. If you flag something and it stay in your favorite forum for a couple of hours, it will probably be ok to put a note here to let us know that something needs to be taken care of that we might be missing.


They're baaaaaak. Flagged 2 in PF RPG General Discussion.

Flagged as well.

At least the forum isn't completely flooded, the way the black magicians used to do.


So somewhere between midnight and eight a.m. pacific is when the spammers arrive?

Will someone tell Myfly to stop adding on to the spam threads :-) I don't think he/she got the Memo :-)


Yep, they're back. Somebody translated one of the spam postings (link will probably break when spam thread gets removed -- I flagged this one, and DON'T post further in there), but it still doesn't make any sense, even from a marketing point of view.

Apologies! O_O

S'cool. I think many people've made the same mistake (I think I did*)!

At any rate, I only learned that we shouldn't from reading the comments by the Mods and Admins in a previous spate of SPAM, so, you know, you're cool. :D

* I... can't really remember anymore, but I'm pretty sure I did, at least once.

Yeah, it was clear from the replies here that a lot of people didn't know about that--I know I didn't.

PMing Alex Martin and Radavel.

EDIT: Huh, I thought I'd posted this significantly earlier. Weeeeiiiiirrrrd.

Thanks, Tac.

Oops, accidentally flagged one of them as 'double post' rather than 'breaks other guidelines'.

Though, technically...since many of them ARE duplicates as far as I can tell...

No worries when it comes to mis-flagging! We'll still see it :)

I'm thinking Lissa, Chris, and crew need a new icon by their names - maybe the Paizo Golem wielding a big ole hammer (or 2).

I did the spam translation... What pitty now iMonkeys idea of the PACG barrier named "Goldilocks massage" with a CONST 3 check is lost! ... And will live forever on in this thread :)

Heya, let's not post the contents of their spam please. We appreciate the translation, but posting the contents of their messages is precisely what they want.


Ooooh no.... I cleared now my clipboard after pasting the English spam translation into the last post in this thread ...

Now, 3 hours of translating the Korean SPAM into English are lost forever.

Is there ANY compensation? :)

No, MBT. No, he won't. That has been seen to.


MBT? Please write German!

Wonder if the spam attack earlier today and the stretch of on-and-off messageboards downtime were connected . . . .

Not even remotely.


Mbt anybody please?


Myfly, he was abbreviating Message Board Troll's alias.

Ja, Myfly. Spiral_Ninja hat recht, denn "MBT" bedeutet "Message board troll."


Es tut uns leid, verpasste ich den Posten, die in der deutschen Antwort gebeten.
