We had 9 pages of users with 0 posts. They've all been messaged to at least say something in the Welcome thread, or the accounts will be purged in hopes of trimming down the spambots.

I will also be updating the register questions, to try and slow down spambots. Again.

I wish there were a way to search for all posts that contain links NOT matching a list of regular expressions.

That would be nice. Would help keeping the forum clean.

I'm going to lock probable spam posts.
Starting with viewtopic.php?f=14&p=119679#p119679
This will force spammers to create new posts for their spam and make them easier to detect.

New spammers are registering again...

But at least it's obvious spam, not the "smart" kind.

Purge complete. Anyone who had 0 posts and registered after 01-01-2018 (other than the Almost Human admin account) has been purged.
