Is it just me or is the H-forum just a haven for bots?  I'm guessing the bots are just targeting based on the word "hentai"?  I really don't know a whole helluvalot about how bots work other than them being some sort of really annoying algorithm.

Also, I must do something it seems I never remember to do, thank our admin and mod for dealing with these problems.  You guys are awesome.

Hm, renaming the forum then? We can't possibly delete it (or can we?), but changing the name of it might exclude it from the botfags keyword lists, who knows.

Well, any saggestions for alternate names that will still make it clear what that area is for?

And Ive said it before and Ill say it again, like it or not hentai is part of the OS-tan fandom, a big part, and we should make no attempt to ignore it.

Whoa, believe me, that's the last thing I want.  I mean, I know it's been some time since I've actually posted in the hentai area, but I do indeed lurk there.

An alternate name might work, but something like Porn, Pr0n, Adult, Mature, 18+, etc. would likely attract the same bots.  Of course, it shouldn't be anything esoteric or ambiguous, for obvious reasons, it should be something any user can figure out.

Abbreviate it to just H.

Guys, the threads came back, I probably don't need to link to them, you know which I mean...

I should delete those spam threads again but since it is the same spammer (likely a bot), but it may be better to IP ban him/it though I don't know how yet -__- (Heh. some mod I am ¬_¬)

NejinOniwa

You might want to do a range-ban, just to be sure...

It was already identified and passed on to an admin, who is responsible for IP bans. The situation will be taken care of.

Sorry for the delay. The IP ban is in place, including the small range the bot was seen using.

I was thinking, though, since the Hentai section seems to attract the bots, what if we only allowed members of the OS-tan citizens group to post in the Hentai area? Since it requires 10 posts, and last I checked, spam bots couldn't read... ^^
What do you guys think?
