Just spam. Once in a blue moon a spamming account will be created and flood the forums with nonsense. Just ignore it, Audax and the rest of the mods will take care of it.

It's concerning, I just don't know the best way to bring it up to the mods so it gets fixed

That kind of thing happens on adult forums sometimes; it's just spam. Mods and admins check this place every day. Trust me; someone has likely already reported at least one of the posts and they will be removed in the morning. For now, just ignore them.

the kitchen threads are sort of pleasant spam at least ^^

they've become more or less of a competition who can report them first :3
I used to be really good at it, but I haven't gotten one in a long time...

Well I know that I reported one of them when they first started popping up, so it will definitely be dealt with.

When I ran a forum I used to have issues with spammers that would post porn photos directly into forum posts, and they'd flood with dozens of messages at a time on a nearly daily basis. I had to pretty much turn off posting for new members until they were approved to deal with it and still had to delete 20-50 new spam accounts daily. Some people I knew at the time were /b/ regulars, so it was probably them signing me up for the spam bots for laughs.

Huh, figured google translate the stuff and turns out for an online casino. Yeah, definitely way more shady than the normal spam. Plus think they would at least try to use the language used on the forum instead of some random one.

I think that is what confused me the most actually. However I didn't even open the threads because it could also have click bait. I recently had some pretty bad virus effect my computer not so long ago, because of a dodgy site that steals art.

Like I honestly thought I would have to pay to get it repaired, so there was no way I was clicking on those!

Yeah... spam happens a lot, and it's either advertising something really dull and irrelevant (ie. golfing equipment) or really damn shady (ie. gambling or drugs). That, and more often than not it's horrendously written or in a different language altogether; so even if for some bizarre reason we were interested in buying some golf clubs or spending our lives earnings on online poker, we wouldn't even understand a word of it.
Advertising logic... :mystery:

I can't imagine who the hell would spent their own sweet time spreading that crap, even if paid for it. Pretty sad really, but oh well. :eyeroll:

Funny thing. I used to run a very small forum. Like maybe 10 or so friends for us to chit chat. I think I only got hit once with a spam bot, but it was something about /b/ being mad that Australia (I think????) wanted to ban porn of women with small breasts.

I used to run a small forum, too, two actually, years ago and was never hit by a spam bot of any kind. I've never been on any forums (other than this one) that have been hit so intensely by spam bots.

I have seen worse than what BD gets. On some hentai sites forums they have very lax mods who are almost never around. Their forums are full of spam, some even spam pages of porn (most of which I think is illegal stuff too) and it just stays there.

I don't doubt it. Not saying that more normal forums don't get hit, because I'm sure they do, but it's a well-known fact that adult oriented forums always get hit hard with the stuff. I'm mildly surprised that BD doesn't get hit more than it does.

Once you are found by the bots, the infestation will continue. Bots track each other. The google for each other's unique text to find places to target. If you've never been hit or can always delete within an hour, you're safe. Once you are hit and it stays long enough for the other bots to track down, you are in their lists forever.

Wow, there is even more of them now? Like several pages of it, burying all the other forum stuff.
