Default Anti-spamify

You know when you join on certain sites and such, you encounter that box with all the fuzz and lines and the enigma that is letters? Yeah, you know the one! The one that says, "To stop bots from making their dang accounts."

Could we not implement such a device that would halt the spammers in their tracks...? (If there is one, geesus those spammers are smart.)

We have something similar to Capcha. I'm not sure why Ryan doesn't want Capcha on top of it, but that's how he stands on the matter.

I agree that we need something more than what's being done, because the amount of ad bots is getting extremely horrendous. If it means having a box with fuzzy letters or whatever, do it. Otherwise, these things pollute the forum with annoying threads, revive old topics, and I hate to say it, but they show no sign of stopping either.

To be fair, a bigger forum like say MTGS is also plagued with similar issues and they use Capcha. They don't seem to see as much bots as we do, IIRC.

I've had Neo ban like 5 - 6 bots a day before.

Almost makes me feel like spamming onlinenewspapersz.com in return (the ones mainly responsible for our recent horde of spam bots). We should plan a raid and make a game where whoever spams them the most wins.

tramadol no prior prescription needed Millions of American accept pain. Chronic pain, daily pain, temporary severe pain. Of all the medications sold by online pharmacies, probably the most common type is pain relievers. It may seem then that online pharmacies make the perfect source of pain relievers.

Well, are you aware the Drug Enforcement Agency of the united states (DEA) has busted and close over 5000 online pharmacies? Did you know that many online pharmacies sell counterfeit medication? Do you realize this is a federal crime so that you can order prescription medications externaly the usa?

It's correct, online pharmacies are a good supply of pain relief medication. This information shows you to order pain medication legally, from within the us, having a legal prescription. It's the only method to go!

First, the caveats: You cannot legally order medication externaly the united states, even if you have a prescription. We always hear the elderly taking buses to Canada to buy cheap medicine. To tell the truth, right now, this series is illegitimate. Also, you cannot legally order medicine coming from a pharmacy without a prescription. Many online pharmacies (including my own) have physicians in the catering company who review your medication request and write you a prescription whenever they think it's safe. In addition, NEVER order narcotics with the mail. Forget codeine, Tylenol #3, oxycontin, demerol, percodan and percocet. You may be charged having a federal crime for purchasing these substances. Lastly, no matter the medication you get, be sure you see the package insert (or a monograph on my web page). Drugs interact with each other sufficient reason for your body- the package insert will tip you on very damaging behavior depending on medication you ordered.

Listed below are quick summaries of common pain alleviation drugs you can order through the Internet with almost no risk:



No good spam bot, I did not know that opening and redistributing medications was against the law. No, I did not know that people were stupid enough to even fall for online pharmacies other than Walgreens. No, I did not realize that it took an idiot with a lot of times on his hands to write such a message to warn us against such a thing. I bet the person who wrote this message just wants to shut down pharmacies so he can sell the local children their "pain medications" personally. Yeah, I see through your scam... I see... through... the scam...

Rant done while eyes were closed and half sleeping, courtesy of Red Bull and a lot of spare time.


UUUUUUUUGH! Do something about this crap. It is really bothering me, and I want to be apart of the vengeance. Neo, can we literally organize a mass spam stomp, where we mass spam the spammers? We block them from their own phony business. Can we make our site so that spammers can stop bothering the hell out of me? I swear, I get enough of it when I check my Yahoo mail, let alone here.

Hey, what you do to them is up to you, in no way will PE2K be personally held responsible for it. :P

The problem is, the majority of these spam accounts are bots, which are computers that have been infected with some malicious software (malware), allowing a hacker to do their dirty work from them without the owner of that computer's knowledge.

Yay for Tech & Society class =P

WE COULD make add a feature where we have to work simple addition problems before we post something. THAT would definitely crackdown on spammers.
