We are very aware of the bots. You do not need to create a new thread every day complaining about the bots.

We are dealing with the bots. I personally nuke a couple hundred after work. But it is takes time because I can only nuke one at a time.

Mods cannot make magic changes to the site to block bots. Mods cannot cannot make it so that new users have to [insert your solution here]

I'm sorry if this sounds frustrated, but I spend hours of my free time grinding away bots, and all I see are comments saying the mods aren't doing anything and they don't care. There are better ways to spend our time if we didn't care.

And side note, some of you need to find an avatar. You might get nuked with the bots if you're new, no avatar, few posts and you're in the middle of a hundred bots

I don't think you're doing a bad job mate, it's just that we need more mods. You guys are clearly overwhelmed by the infuriating amount of bots, anybody would be. We need at least 3 more mods man.

I'm sure nuking bots over and over again is super annoying, so thank you and good luck in your endeavor

I don't know if you're capable of giving people mod at this point, but honestly, I enjoy the community here to the extent that I would spend an hour a day removing hundreds of bot threads and not using the powers for anything else ( I.E. solely as a janitor or cleaner for the site ) with somebody watching me and being ready to remove those powers if I did use them for anything else.

I believe at the current rate, if nothing changes, I can't see myself or others continuing to write posts or blogs that takes hours only to be on page 10 the next day because of ad bots and I definitely don't see newer users joining the site if they see the same thing. Something needs to be done.

Thank you wildvine and every other mod for keeping the pages clean. No more scanning through them to see nothing but bot spam. Keep it up.

Sorry about the bots. I thought it was back under control and I haven't been really checking the forums much lately. I'll get Gen Dis cleared out. It will just take me a few days. Again, sorry.

@wildvine: I mean you can't be here 24/7. It's great that you're trying to get them off I think that it's best for the users to ignore bots and their threads
