    Those who left a link to their forum in the vanillaforums should consider hiding or unlinking it, by writing something like this: "fff myforum and this is my suffix"

    Just to hide your forum from a spam attack like this if the bot starts grabbing and following URLs as well.

    Yeah, sorry about this guys. We are going to have to get a more comprehensive spam control solution in place. We are getting on the radar or spammers more and more. I guess we've arrived. sigh.

    To answer radist. The spam control just prevents people from posting comments too fast which is an indicator of a spam bot. Of course, spammers can just make their bots more patient and get through things.
