We can't stop here, this is bot country!

Have you received a PM from a mysterious stranger, inviting you to click on their enticing links? A mysterious stranger with no or very few posts? If so, please please please let us know! We've had a few bots (or people who very much fail the Turin test) sign up and start spamming PMs out to people.

The unfortunate thing is that this can slip under the notice of Team Admin if they're smart enough to not send us a PM or we're not sitting by the castle gates, flaming sword in hand. So if it happens to you, let us know so we can hunt the person down and place their head on a pike.

That was horrible, you should never be allowed to write a news post ever again. You suck.

Well, I feel perfectly safe here on ORP. For one, I haven't received any spam PMs at any time nor have I seen any spam on the boards. Ever. Kudos to you admins.

Other than that... if the admins hate each other so much but still manage to work together so well (*cough*), then all is good. And will be. Forever.

I got a notice of such a PM in my email, but by the time I came to ORP to look at my PM inbox, it was gone. I did not click on any links, cuz I like to think I'm smarter than that.

Silly spambots.

Online-Roleplaying seems pretty cool I guess, I plan to post here plenty...thought I'd refer you to a pretty cool Roleplaying forum that just started up, it's pretty awesome with lots of different RP worlds and games, from fantasy, to anime, to sci-fi, to a bunch of other stuff. ;)
Anyway, hope to see you both here and there, I guarantee you'll enjoy it if you give it a chance.
Check it out: (link not copypasta'd)
I giggle at the "plan to post here plenty" part. But that was what I got, and like I said, it was gone from my actual PM box by the time I woke up, checked my email, and then checked ORP.

This is just a not too subtle reminder that if you see spam anywhere on Orp you should click the little 'Report' button that is floating on each post so that Team Admin can continue the war against Spammor. We can't be everywhere (not even me) and we need you to keep an eye out for us.

Not sure if it's spam? Report it anyway. Think someone else already reported it? Report it anyway. Could really use that $1000 from Nigeria? Report it anyway.
