Maybe an IP block since this board records the IP of every user.

This idiot is destroying the forum.

This guy is everywhere. I suggest as many people as possible report his site as spam too, to take down any SEO advantage he has gotten.

Good idea. What to fill in those boxes in the form?

Is there any tool or extension available which can block such spams automatically?

You're entitled to some sleep without some idiot running amok on the forum.

Thanks for taking care of it  :)

I posted several of his treads to google spam form so when they see his website link they will hopefully Sandbox his site never to be found again and all his efforts will be in vain including his .com version of his site.

The whole site was inundated with literally hundreds of spam postings offering essays on every subject imaginable.   It probably was while you were asleep.  Theres no way you could have missed them if you had tried to access the site at the time.  Then our hero Leaf got it sorted out and alls back to normal now.

It was some bot posting the same post with different titles every two minutes.

wow, thx 4 the info, sean, pixel,...
yes, it must have my sleepy time that i missed it .
amazing how some genius can know how to do that (sabotage)
and yet not use their knowledge to better use.

if i could understand even how to do as you say "a bot"...
i would do it in such a way to my advantage and not piss ppl off .

guess that's the difference between a hero and a madman
