When the mods come online they will delete it. This is a new attack, same as yesterday. Either a bot, or cheap human labor. It will pass.
You think you can do these things, but you can't, Nemo!
Just keep reading.
Just keep learning.

You think is possible to be related with this ?AI Controlling the Internet Spam World

was looking for AI coding for duplicate it in C2 and do a small self improving AI Warrior hero in c2 that you take him as a baby to protect him teach him the basics, then you can log off and when u come back, the warrior will be improving offline by himself! :D looting items crafting etc ! and becoming stronger for u :P and also teaching him to talk! and for some reason i ended up on that Wikipedia thing! and its kinda scary cause i read an article saying that the guys who made it, are trying to sell it to other people, but they dident even got caught yet, but the people who track this stuff knows, or have parts of ideas where to start searching for the root of it (MenINBlack ETC) the bad part is, its never gonna stop! in 2014 almost 3 out of 4 computers in homes are infected with a botnet virus :( makes me wander where i get my computer or what Tube-sites to enter anymore! *Sigh's*

So much now, it's just ridiculous... I seem to remember Monty Python wrote a song which sums up the current situation rather well!

Cleaned it all up again, it didn't take long, but we have to sleep some time...

Every restriction we put on new signups affects legit users too - things like manually approving posts or limiting to one post on first day presents extra barriers to entry for new users joining the community. The existing link blocking was very effective when we first implemented it, but still is inconvenient for some new users, especially in bug reports. We need to improve our automated spam detection somehow, but without tightening the restrictions on new users so much that they don't feel welcome or that they can participate as much as they want to.

This latest wave is tricky because it all seems to come from different IPs (I'm banning them all, it doesn't seem to help much), it's circumventing the signup captcha somehow, and they're not posting real links (which makes the whole exercise pretty pointless, but what do spammers care... sigh...). Tom happens to be away at the moment but he's back in a few days and should be able to find a way to cut this out automatically. Until then, we'll have to keep cleaning!
