I checked a few of the accounts... they look like they were made today.

Gizmo? In the Twitterverse we call these things spambots.

For example: I went to the profile of "gwakamol" and it says "he" has 261 posts. So I clicked Search User's Posts and it turns out all 261 were made today, in the last hour.

I even would suspend registration until a bot safe registration is developed.

I just hit "New Posts" again, there's like 100 new ones.

These spambots are still doing it.

Hmmmm, gonna hit up the active list and see if any other forums are being hit.

On a side note, near as I can tell there's no hacked accounts. All these spambots are brand new. Not saying there aren't any, just don't see them yet.

So, all the other forums I'm on show none of this activity. It's just here...
...and no matter how much these spambots do this, none of them are listed in the PEAK POSTERS yet.

10:50 PM 2/4/2016: It's good the spambots are gone... but now this post looks like it's shooting at nothing.
