its probably been posted alot, but i was wondering whats happened? there is spam all over the forums, the site has been spam free for over the year I have been on here. just seems suspicious to me... :dontknow:
Most of it is automated clickbait. As far as I know (generally, not specific to this site) it comes down to a balance between protecting against spam bots and accessibility for real accounts. It does come in spurts like Tracie said. As the methods for attack change, the success rate changes until updates can be applied. It works similarly to antivirus programs in that regard. Best thing to do as mentioned is to just report it when you see it. Not a huge deal as it's pretty obvious (so far) what is real and what is clickbait.
Yeah. It's annoying for sure. I've noticed some new tactics on some, where it looks like a real person. They post a simple and relevant reply on a topic or two, but in their signature (or end of message) is a simple link advertising something.
Reporting them is the best way for us to stay on top of it. We have a list of the posts reported to help us narrow in on the problems.
This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
