Will this also prevent alt accounts (weazel, zero etc)? If so then it will be a very worthwhile change!

If they are using a proxy when they create those alts, then yes - if they're using their standard IP address, well then chances are they'll eventually get caught anyway, at which point one of the mods might move on to a more permanent ban...   ;)

But spamming is life!

Affirmative. I stay chasing alts. ;)

Thankfully, Mods have a chunk of the tools y'all do. :P



                                                                                                                                                           

What's this? A front page sticky?



I like the new icon. Never seen it before.

A new icon AND red text... good shit! :P



I'm surprised this wave of spam passed without me noticing. It's been a while since I got spam on my messages or my wall.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

You don't have a female avy, that's why.

Yes - this will be for important messages that everybody needs to know about (such as, the potential for users to have trouble gaining access to the website).

We will NOT flood the Hot Topics box with these and they'll only be stickied temporarily...  :)

Ah, this was only affecting people with female avatars. Ok, I was out of the loop for a second there. :P
