    Sorry about that. I just saw someone had posted something new on this thread and thought I would reply.
    Lol, it's totally fine. I'm just not used to non-bots posting on the forums as of late.

    Really thought your account got compromised and it was used to randomly spam "Far Cry 3" ... until I scrolled up and re-read the question from Crunch posted 4 years ago.

    Out of Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4, which one do you think was the best single player?

    I mean, let's not give them ideas now.

    They love their free advertising by spamming. That's bad enough at times.

    As I mentioned in the super secret forum area, I banned another ~470 spambot accounts today and added at least 10 new email domains to the blacklist.

    I have also added reCaptcha v2 to the site for registrations and other areas.

    If any of you run into issues, let me know either on the site (if you can) or on Twitter or wherever you know my contact info.

    That's pretty bad.

    Running a WordPress site is just as bad. Glad I use wordfence security.

    Quick, find the ones that aren't spambots.



    EDIT: A little update on this. There were about 3,000 additional accounts with similar names that weren't logged in right now but that have registered in the past week or so. ... I banned them.

    All of them. That's about 6,300+ accounts just banned. What I really did was search for new registers that have 0 posts in a certain usergroup and mass moved them to the "banned" usergroup. I hope nobody innocent was caught but in a group of 6,300 I wasn't about to take the time to go through with a fine-toothed comb.

    I also added seven email domains to the banned email address list with this.
