    Not sure the language, but the site is definitely under siege!

    I sent Kellen a message. Sadly, I can't stay on the site all day, deleting these spammers.

    I think it is just a matter of signing up under a bunch of names and then posting spam. Why Chinese? No idea!

    Thanks for taking those out this morning. I just made it harder to register, apparently these bots aren’t having much trouble with Google’s captcha system.

    This might make a bit more challenging for regular humans to register, but should effectively stop the spam bots.

    No hack, like fisheromen said above, just spam bots (automated scripts) registering and creating posts. Most attempts to register were still being stopped, but a few each day for the last week or more have been making it through all the checks.

    I don't believe the site has been offline at all recently, according to the logs. These bots won't crash the site, we have counter measures against that and if they do things too fast they get blocked automatically.

    These spam bots lately have been successful for the sole reason that they appear just like regular users. They have good IP addresses, good emails, are verifying their email addresses, passing captchas, etc...

    What I don' get is how posting gibbeish is profitable. Or is that just the nature of spam.

    They're automated, they don't even know they're posting on a fishing site probably. They're trying to also post links (which is the purpose of most spam) - but those ones are automatically filtered out because new users can't post links without first having 5 good posts.
