bots spamming the discussion forum

Hi, the 2 bot accounts have been banned and their spam removed. We'll see what additional security features we can add on a short notice to mitigate this annoying issue. Meanwhile, keep sending me PMs or update this thread if/when you see new bot accounts. Thanks.

bots spamming the discussion forum

Quick update on this topic: We've made some changes to the groups permissions so hopefully this will prove to be a strong enough deterrent for the spammers to avoid the DML Forum. Going forward, we'll look into different solutions to improve our existing spambot countermeasures configured on the Forum (no ETA here at the moment).

That being said, I'll keep an eye this evening (GMT +2) on the various sections and will make sure to put the banhammer to use if I see any new bot activity. Thank you all for the great feedback and for bearing with us.
