There appears to be a new phpBB spambot out..

It takes a random quote, if it even takes any quote and produces a few standard phrases, such as:
Looks interessting, where can i get the real deal?
Could someone explain this further?

And so on, so forth.. Reason I know it's a spambot is because for the first sentence it quoted:
Pete,

And for the second sentence it did:
.

I'm removing them on sight.. *loads rifle..*


Pete, should I save the IP's? They're all from proxies.. but alteast you could block that.. dunno, your call..
I have left this dump.

Sure, save the IP addresses.

If we notice a pattern, we might be able to block them preemptively.

(But if they turn out to be random, I don't know if it will be much good...)

fork spammers.

They are the commy nazi hippies that just cringe at the statement "the cheese stands alone."
