Recent board disruption

Postby monchavo » Wed Dec 17, 2014 10:08 am

Gentlefolk. Greetings of the season to you.

The board has been impacted over the past few days by what appears to be a concerted attack from a series of bots who are registering fake accounts. I had put quite complex spambot countermeasures in place, but these have seemingly been defeated (commonplace over time). I have:

- Disabled new user registration to airdisaster,info
- Removed the fake user accounts
- Removed erroneous topics

You will still see "quoted text" from any of these user's posts.

Going forward I will

- Review what additional countermeasures I can deploy
- Work out a way to let people know how to register manually (since I took the board over we've had 2 legitimate new user registrations)

Contact me if you have any questions
