I apologize, but I find it kind of funny that you went through the effort to black out and type over the screenshot, yet not realize the question changed. But I'll go ahead and change it for you so you can change your title. :P

It might be an idea to send PMs to people to let them know this is going on.

Might I recommend a spambot forum. A trap where spambots posting in said forum reveal the accounts mods need to drop the Ban-Hammer.

Also, I changed my avatar yesterday 2 times, the one you're probably seeing atm is the one I used first, I changed it a little while later with a picture of a guy in the Airborne units.. it hasn't changed yet.. why?

EDIT: OK, there we go, it's fixed.

On another site I visit an admin create a forum that was a trap for spam bots. The key was that only a bot (or an idiot) would post in a forum where the admins threatens the deletion of the offending account and an I.P. perma-ban. Spam bots; being bots, would make a spam posting within said forum revealing which accounts are really bots making the job of routing out such accounts easier for the administration staff. In fact within five days of implementing that "spambot forum" they got their first (and so far only) catch.

And how do you ensure that spambots will post there and not in another forum? We have caught spambots posting in various forums, here.

You can't really prevent them from posting elsewhere. For that to work you would already have to know who the bots are.

The trap is one way to unmask them.

Then it's really not very useful, IMO, if you're going to rely on random chance that a spambot will post in that forum, thereby revealing themselves.....

No, I suspect it's simply been quietly removed until/unless something else appropriate can be used.

I don't think so, Tim.......er ;)

I just looked and it's right at the top of my Profile Update page. You have to actually go to "My Controls" then click on "Edit Profile Information". The page that comes up should have the bot check as the top-most item.

I noticed it a couple of days ago when I edited my title, fully expecting it to still be there.

I did try refreshing a few times.

EDIT: Just caught your HI reference there. ;)
