Good morning, all!
These Amazon Prime vans that stop in the middle of the road. When is this ever a good idea?

At least the USPS guys have the decency to pull onto the shoulder.
Spammer stuff working great. I spy a few, but they're not the massive bot thing, and in fact it's totally plausible they're just real human spammers, which there'll never really be a way to totally prevent from even registering. Good stuff.

If this holds up for a bit I'll go back and cull a lot of inactive accounts, too, and get the full memberlist a good deal leaner.
Guilty of using a little bit of The Chronic to make it through leg day.
"Hey Baby Groot. Keep my name out yo' mouf!"
Less spammers is always a good thing! Some months ago there was an attack I seen late night...It's always good to see them go poof!
It's kinda funny how simple they can be, for that reason. Some people have had success literally just renaming the registration file.

Thankfully, these things are dumb and only worth doing if they're doing en masse, indiscriminately. It's not worth their time to try to make exceptions for individual sites, they just look for a certain software type and then run set instructions, which is why the countermeasures can be so effective.
It's a clever little thing: it just blocks registration if the submission comes within 15 seconds of the start of the process, since bots are basically instant and humans never complete it that fast.
