Spam Bots on Updates


#1

It has been brought to my attention that there are a couple of old updates that have been spammed with bots:
http://gemsofwar.com/gladiators/
http://gemsofwar.com/chain-reaction/
http://gemsofwar.com/1-0-7-out-now/

Many of these posts even date today. @Sirrian and other devs, are you aware of this? Requiring an account to comment, while inconvenient, may act as a temporary or even permanent fix. None of them have tried occupying recent updates, but it is only a matter of time before they do.

Oh, newish ones have it too it seems, just not as bad:

Can confirm. Opening up Gladiators nearly crashed my browser. Going to just take Tacet’s word on the other ones.


#3

Yeah, it is actually on nearly every single update post ever. The first 3 are the ones hit the most.

I’m working through and fixing some of these… there are even MORE that have never been approved, which I need to work through as well, so it’ll take a while.
