Good morning everyone.
I've seen a lot of comments regarding the recent increase in spam bots appearing on this site. We're doing everything we can to prevent them from signing up, but it's just a losing battle.
Trust me, I don't like seeing them on here as much as you do. There's no reasoning with them, there's no coaxing them to stop, there's no person behind the posts, and there's no way to ever completely stop them.
The posts come from India, China, Russia, you name it. The IPs are banned immediately with them, but there's no end to it because there's no end to the amount of IPs one can hide behind. If I were an admin, there may be a way to block an entire range of IPs, but I don't know how vBulletin works or if a site admin could do this for us.

and everyone else, I can't thank you enough for letting me know whenever you spot crap like this and I try to respond to it as fast as possible.
While reporting the post is always the first course of action, mentioning me is certainly
the best way to get my attention. When you mention me, I immediately
get an email and I will always look into it at least through that. If it seems urgent through the email, I'll respond on here as soon as I can.
This goes for anyone causing an issue on the forum as well. As soon as things get out of hand (I.E. Torsional Stiffness), mention me, or any of the other mods and we'll come as soon as possible.
Again, thank you for your concerns, and we're doing everything we can to prevent these lousy bots from defiling our site.
