    Bots


    I logged in today, and there didn't appear to be any bots logged in! I was amazed...

    Almost all of the spam gets caught by spam fllters and gets marked as "unapproved", which means only mods and admins can see them. I typically see a few spammers every day, but (a) it's only a couple clicks to deal with them and (b) I don't mind so much since regular users don't even know about it. The same filters catch the occasional legitimate post (generally because of URLs) or Web Hosting thread, but it's a couple clicks to approve those too - though they aren't visible until then.

    What do you mean: we're all bots. You're the only organic being here.
