Wow, you're having a nasty time with porn spammers. I've never seen that happen as much...

Anyway, is there special software that prevents spam on forums?

This IS the special software. :) We upgraded the forums about 18 months ago to a version with better anti-spam software, and they held strong until the last couple weeks. I guess the spammers have improved their methods...

Yeah, they have more hitpoints now, and upgraded from feats to using per-encounter exploits. :twisted:

Fortunately I just finished my Banish Spammer ritual. It had a casting time of about two weeks, and I kept blowing the Computer Use check to make it work, but it's done now.

We should be clean for a while.
If not, I've got some crow pie ready to eat.

You just sprinkle a little dried sea drake on that, and it'll go down easier....

Ah, sea drake. Is there nothing you don't make better?
