Email reply notification bug

Postby Mikain Clan King » Wed Dec 10, 2008 10:35 pm

I am getting emails that say the posts are replied to but I check it and I'm the last one to reply, and these are posts I replied to like 3+ months ago. Has this happened to anyone else and is there a way to fix it?

It's not a bug, the messages are simply deleted by the time you check as they are produced by spambots.

Raww's quite right. We're working on anti-spam counter measures to try and curb the number of spam bots that have been appearing lately, but in the meantime the moderators just manually delete spam as it appears.

Was going to say cause its happened like 3 times, I considered that the first time but 3 seemed like an awful lot. Anyways thanks for the fast reply.

I just deleted a spam bot that posted inside 10 different topics. I'll implement some sort of hard-coded anti-bot measure soon. Until then, manual deletion is the only way. Suikosource has about 32000 sites linking to it (based on traffic), so a lot of bots find their way here.
