F**KING BOTS >8C

Okay, so, mods might know this already, but this is really starting to tick me off and all because I keep getting all these fucking updates and I am beyond frustrated adn dfgfkdljasfkjds;lagkd

Right, so, very recently, we have been getting SPAMMED with bot accounts. I quite literally have been getting upwards of 6 emails everyday about accounts needing activation, and when I go check them, THEY ARE ALL FUCKING BOTS.
ALL OF THEM.
Today was the last straw.
I got 22 Swamp Rat related emails.
NINETEEN OF THEM WERE BOT ACCOUNTS ASKING FOR ACTIVATION.

I have banned, I have deleted, I have done everything I can short of closing down registration entirely.
If anyone has any ideas for getting these goddamn BOTS out of our hair, I would really appreciate it, cause I am SERIOUSLY fed up with this shit.

Yeah, sorry about setting it to admin approval, but I was getting sick of the five-step process of deleting all of those bots ONE BY ONE every day. I happily accept the seventeen SR emails I got today over that bullshit.

Agreed, but I'm really quite pissed about the fact that the bots KEEP COMING BACK.
I know there has to be some modification or something we can use to fix this, I am so tired of this bullshittery.

We might be able to contact their service provider and get them kicked off. I'll look into it tomorrow or sunday
