    [to admin] The live stream bot

    What's the deal with this bot? Can't you just start a temp IP address ban? Did it defeat the captcha? Can't you set an honeypot, or is General Discussion the honeypot? Enabled first post approved functionality?... I don't know, something... The thing is playing around the forums like we are some fools.

    I don't understand, what could they possibly gain by defacing a programming forum? Looks like the work of some cretin.
