Hey everyone, how are you doing?
It's been a while but Mike helped me get into my account again, yay!

I've been on for about two hours now, it appears that spammers' and bots' main forum targets are Generals: modding and Generals: maps and wb forums. I have deleted some of the spam posts there but I'm gonna take a break for now.
Any way this is a short battle report haha.

What were these bots and spammers advertising? Well here are some of the ones I remember now.
E-mail templates, banking services, Affordable Dumpster Rentals Services, vans shoes, converse shoes, nike shoes, adidas shoes, essays, lab reports, games, something like winrar, dating apps, building confidence, casinos, IT certificates, more shoes, purses, shoes, health insurance, insurance, weather stations (always wanted to have my own weather station...), FRESH FOAM, car rentals in miami, car rentals in russia, looking for a door cleaner?, cryptocurrency, biology lab research papers, ram (these bots advertise downloading more ram xD), kids' room renovations, clothes (not gonna go into detail about which clothes they were selling Dead ).
A Muslim, ask me anything about Islam if you want

One more thing, it really helps me locate the spammers and their posts faster when you report them, and I appreciate it.

These spammers think they're smart when they comment on a topic with "Yes, that's interesting" and "thanks" only to edit their replies later without the reply showing a notification for us to remove it. But they are five steps from realizing I am ten steps ahead Big Smile Big Smile
