Default Spam Robot Fun

Is it just me or have we had an awful lot of spam postings within the last 24 hours? Not in the sense that there's some troll going around and posting annoying stuff. It looks more likely that the forum software isn't able to keep spam robots from creating accounts recently.

I've seen at least half a dozen of those spam robot postings over the last 18 hours. Spam postings have happened before, but not that often. I know this vBulletin version is a little outdated, but maybe something can be done by changing some of the settings in the admin control panel.

It would also be extremely helpful that if you quote the spammer to reply to them, delete the content. Otherwise you are just replicating the spam-ness (it indeed there is such a word as that).

UD, this isn't the DB boards. There's no need to make a second account.

This is getting ridiculous. Obviously the spambot creator has figured out a way past captcha. We (mods) seriously appreciate the reporting of the posts.
