If you are not yet aware, the top forums got spammed with a bunch of Chinese posts. Might want to get that fixed...
Yes we’re taking care of it.
Yep, we're taking care of it.
Spam isn't something you "fix". You can put things into place to mitigate it, but in the end nothing will stop someone who wants to spam manually or semi-manually. We have various defenses if you'd like to call it that. Sometimes people find gaps in those (and there are plenty), and we patch up those holes until the next round. No amount of preventive coding will block 100% of spam. Some of it is super subtle. Some spammers are pretty creative and clever.
Ultimately you have to make it inconvenient or unsuccessful enough to post spam that they give up and go somewhere else.
This happens from time to time. Just report the offending posts to staff and they will be removed.
