Are there no mods / admins around atm?

I would suggest that it might be a good idea to go to a manual activation system like 68kmla since it pretty much eliminates spam

It seems that IIGS User is either on holidays or is incapacitated in some way. I hope he is OK. However, don't we have another mod who can do the same clean-up job that IIGS User kindly does for us when he is available? If we do not have another moderator with the same access as IIGS User, then we definitely should have.

Forget "Carmen Sandiego". Where on earth is IIGS_User? Moreover; Where on earth is an Admin when you need one?

They can let me get rid of the spammers if they need an extra pair of hands.

In the meantime. I hope IIGS is OK.

I give up. This is too much. I will not be doing anything more here until this mess gets cleaned up. I will return then.

I'm inclined to do likewise. I've witnessed this happened to two earlier versions of MG and it's not a pretty sight seeing a likeable forum transform into a catwalk for cretins.

The spammers aliases can always be listed in this topic for an admin to deal with

Clockwise (Emaculation) might take care of this, as soon as his mod login is working again.
Maybe others had issues with mod login as well.

Nice to see the comments about my absence (NO_ERR_RESPONSE, affected to any mod at its time) .
Simply no log-in was possible.

  What spammers actually do in the server

Lately they've been creating pages about fake Mac software with "Available for purchase" external links. Mostly tho' they'll get as far as creating a user account then get slowed down by Mollem and captures, then presumably "give up"...

I'd remove their user accounts myself, but my authority level doesn't extend that far.
