Let the purge continue!

Would upgrading the forum help with this?

    not counting the number of bots deleted, lets say its over 600.

    1) forums are not "upgradable". It's just part of the site.
    2) I disabled the physical sign up link so the bots are not dumb: they're either sql-injecting (bad) or just directly accessing the ruby script used to create accounts. (also bad)

    So next step is to take out the registration page altogether + disable the scripts responsible for signing up.

    No new bot has spawned since 47 minutes before Dosu's post. So far, so good!

    Thanks so much easy!

    It's sad that the sign up page had to be removed.
    Hopefully in a week or so it can be restored.

    It's only a matter of time. It also won't take long before the remaining bots stick out their uneasy heads to be weeded out now that the SQL injection(?) and/or bot generator is useless.

    bots don't get re-used. Accounts are use-and-dispose and run on a script.

    No need to painstakingly sift through accounts and try to figure out who's who.
