I think this guy created multiple accounts for this crap.

At least he could have posted some serious boots:

I just deleted this wanker's several accounts and all his spam. The IP is in South Korea for a change. He's not our usual Pakistani spammer. Way too prolific.

Just deleted another one. Aussie IP this time...*sigh*
By the way guys, just flag these posts -- don't reply to them. That way when we ban their e-mail and delete their account, all their threads disappear in one fell swoop :)

I've suspected something like this might happen for a while. Spammers are getting paid by someone, so eventually they're going to up their game. Could be we'll need to get more agressive about what new accounts can do. Which would suck. My own first post on DT was a new thread I made because I hadn't spotted the Keyboard Oracle yet. It was a pretty good thread…

4chan has a captcha method where you just tick a box to prove you're not a robot. I don't know how it works but I recall reading something about it looking for natural mouse movements and such -- seems to work well.

I don't think we're up against a bot. Just poor humans. Bots would bury us mods with multiple new accounts per second. This guy was child's play to erase. Thanks to try user tagged spam posts. Thanks for that work guys!

Tagging them is good because they appear in red in the spy. Replying is bad because then deleting the account + posts leaves the thread behind :(

Sorry. Thumb typing. And thumb modding! My new iPhone is big enough to be useable on the admin interface. But autocorrect is autocorrect!

You got exactly what I was saying, anyway. I hate deleting stuff and ruining thread readability. Usually I'll ban our Pakistan fella's latest account and spam it up. But tonight's outbreak was bad enough to just hit delete user on each responsible burner account.

So yes: everyone! Flag spam instead of replying to it. The demongolator will be left the burden of cleaning up your stranded retorts to /rev/null. And he's a lazy bugger.
