If you're in or around NYC this weekend (Apr 5-6), check out MoccAFest; only 5 bux to get in and plenty of indie comics & their creators inside.

I sincerely doubt that the spambots are "targeting" this site for any specific reason. More likely the people behind them just cast a wide net, hoping to hit whatever sites they can. Most sites just deflect the spam, but this place isn't as well shielded.
>> No. 391580

Neither is TGFB, as /dammit/ has been getting pounded with this spam for about as long as you guys have.

Then how are we getting posts on the new boards, which supposedly are different enough that they'd need to target us for it to work? Clearly the answer is that plus4 is targeted, you're in on the conspiracy, and I'm not crazy at all.

But do enemies still drop spirit tokens when you use it?
>> No. 391598
Either some moron is having a giggle or the spam has made its way to the new boards.

Any fresh ideas on what to do?
>> No. 391600
the spam is manual on both the old and new boards, the fact that it's not 100 posts a day is indication of that. they are probably targetting plus4 because the posts aren't deleted promptly, they hit dead boards and boards without consistent moderation

Seriously. Just implement captcha alerady.
On another note, my new keyboard feels amazing. This is the first time I'm instantly feeling familiar with it. I usually need a bit of time to get used to a new keyboard, but I'm loving this one.

holy SHIT im SICK as FUCK
between the vomiting, the diarrhea, and the sweating from fevers, i'm losing a TON of fluid, generally faster than I can get it in. if I had money I'd go get IV fluids going, but I don't, so that sucks. I slept for 44 hours to try to get rid of it, for all the good that did, and because I feel so ass, I'm in a pretty bad mood all-around. This is the pits.

wat. So I stop showing up to instead concentrate on bashing my head on study books, and suddenly I'm moved out in a hostel or something.

nope. never left. still in the same shitty situation, just haven't even been visiting this place.

>> No. 391627
Ram! Your not dead! I'm not dead ether!
And you can't stay at hostels for more than a week at a time.

Oh, so I'm back at the haunted house place, getting things together. It takes a lot of work to prepare for season comeing up.
I dug a trence for a electral line with a pick axe. I almost died.

Hey, for what it's worth, I can help out with nuking the CP spam. I visit here at least twice daily and don't want to see this place get drowned in that bullshit.

Yeah, ditto.
>> No. 391645

If you know who is here, hire some janitors. If you're worried about power abuse, just give the janitors the ability to delete CP and spam and only CP and spam. Have one of the veteran mods look through what's been deleted to see if that person belongs on staff.

Or just hire someone here with a name that you trust to clean up. Just do something. This is one of the few places I have to chill on the internet.

I love it when someone randomly comes out of left field with an invention that puts an entire stagnant industry on blast.

"Hey guess what, I just created a device that allows women to 3D print make up, DEAL WITH IT FASHION INDUSTRY"

Oh man thay's a feeling I know and am terrified of, the worst is waiting for the answer, I'm applying to the Bachelor of Education program to finally become an official teacher and I find out hopefully tomorrow.

Any reason they'd need a fancy printer and not just something that mixes various waxes and whatever else before pouring them in a tube? Nice when that happens, though.

Sounds like a better idea than turning left.

I guess I'm leaving /baw/, this is too much. Almost barfed when visiting the board. Moose really tries but he's just one guy with a life to live and can't catch everything all day.

I didn't contribute much but bawwwing so don't miss me.

PS I hope someone is reporting this shit to a government agency or something? Like the images and everything in case it can help identify a child or an offender. I don't know how that works tbh but I want to at least feel like something is being done

Good luck in life fellow SYMers.

Seriously though this is out of hand. We clearly need more staff to get this shit off of the page.
>> No. 391730
It almost seems like someone is just posting the shit via proxy to harass or incriminate the board.
>> No. 391733
Well, it's gone now, at least.

Now, then.

What? Why, what's wrong with it.
>Nothing. I've just knocked it over a few times in my sleep, and I don't want glass in my bed or face, you know? So, do you want it?
Y...yeah, kind of. But that was a gift, man. You don't take a gift back unless it's busted.
>Well, either you take it, or my brother does. And we both know what'll happen there.
>Remember what happened to those Wavebirds you gave me for Christmas?
>Long story short, the poster hangs beside my TV.

I feel like crap taking back a gift like that, but considering what could have happened to it, I guess I could understand? I'm not sure, man. I'm still trying to get the idea of never returning/disposing of gifts thing out of habit.

To those that offered to help out:
1) Thank you
2) There's a janitor recruitment thread in new/baw/ (and it would only be for the new set of boards, not this current set). No fancy form like the motherboard uses, but you can toss your hat in the ring.

Hiding it doesn't remove the image from your browser cache, though; and, with the way our world goes apeshit over CP, having just that single image can land you in huge shit. Not that child porn isn't a serious and real problem, but if a community or police force gets a hint that you've seen any CP image they will turn against you now and forever. Even if you can prove your innocence, even if you were a blind man, you will forever be considered a pedophile and social pariah.

> I hope someone is reporting this shit to a government agency or something
Pfft. The FBI won't do shit unless you have something far more substantial than a single image, that has been partially-clothed half the time, to a URL that is almost certainly a virus. I'm sure they're already aware of it; the NSA has tipped them off if nothing else. If we tried to contact them directly they would just hound the hell out of us. At best we could give them a list (I already posted an image with some) of the IPs we've banned that are certainly proxies, compromised computers, or tor exits, and they probably already have everything on that list.

At best, with our cooperation they might be able to go after the URL shorteners used in the images, but those are a dime-a-dozen and can be used for legit purposes as well.
>> No. 391743
Wait, we don't even have to open the picture, and we're screwed?
>> No. 391744
You where screwed the moment you went on the internet.
It's a world where someone can throw damming evidence at you and you have no choice but to take the blame.

They'll ask "why didn't you just leave?". No matter what you say, they'll still blame you.
>> No. 391745
Potentially. Just a lone CP image in your cache can be enough for them to give you hell over. It wouldn't be enough to charge you on, I think, but they could still confiscate your computer for months (if you even get it back), drag you to court, the media would be happy to drag your name through the mud, etc.
>> No. 391747
