I'd advise against all regular members posting there. That seems to be where most of the spambots are posting. I usually zip through it and ban them all. I really don't want to accidentally ban a regular member by mistake, who has posted somewhere in the middle of the 50 or so spambots we ban everyday.

 

See? I do care about you lot.

I might ask Rob to get rid of it, as it's where most of the spammers post. Although I wonder if we got rid of it, would they just post in the forums? The reality is, banning them from the "status update" area is so much easier, as it's a lot less clicks.

I always find this strangely satisfying. Banning a spambot that's still online. Like I know he's trying to post spam but can't do so. Banning a spambot that's not online will never know he got banned. Of course they're all robots so they won't know either way. But still satisfying. It's like prevention rather than cure.

 

Any other mods feel the same way?

What if they're self aware? You're basically murdering them.

So worth checking out. If you don't see anything again makes sure it's that.
