Unfortunately, I feel this is killing the site quicker than a hostile takeover. There is everything from straight "wall of text" spam, to hidden links in copies of old posts, and con artists posing as newbies in order to beg for answers.

I agree. I recently returned after a few months, and some of the boards are completely unusable. Is there any mod/admin that can do something about this?

The mods added a Restricted group for new users so they can only make one post before they need mod approval, but that has only helped a little, since they just keep making new accounts and using up their one post for spam.

I wonder what changed, if spamming evolved or if pixelation just got under their radar as a good spot, it definitely wasn't like this around one year ago, and it just went downhill. With some luck Indigo's new custom forum tech will arrive eventually and be less prone to this than SMF. This is really sad.
