FEEDBACK: Automated Account Generation Problem

Post by uneducated » Fri May 17, 2019 10:23 am

It looks like the Slitherine forum has been subject to an automated account creation bot. Since as far back as January, perhaps even further, very many accounts have been created with random user names and none of the accounts ever post anything. See below, for example:

memberlist.php?first_char=u&start=1500
