Well, there should be a filter in place that weeds out all the spamming bots. I am sure you noticed something like a series of letters and/or words that needed to be typed into a field while you were filling out the registration form a while back. That is one way to prevent the spam bots from gaining access to the site and posting spam.

There should also be a program in place to do pretty much the same thing. I am not sure of all the technical parts of it, but it should normally do a pretty good job.

I think they are getting past our filter somehow.
All we've had is manually banning each spambot and removing their threads, banning the IP address, but they are coming out of the woodwork way too fast. Hopefully admin figures this out. x__x

If he isn't sensitive when you touch it, he can walk on it fine and you think there is no injury then try to notice WHEN he acts like it's bothering him. Some dogs, anxious or not, tend to fake an injury to get attention. Dogs will try anything for extra love. I used to live in a neighborhood where this little neglected dog Elmo would limp around looking sad until someone bent down to pet him and see what was wrong. He would then start running around and licking people and want to play.

Robotic trolls!
I can't believe they've reached bettafish too. Grr.

LL added me as a friend and I'm not inclined to accept... xD

Edit: Mocha is so cute, when she waits at my parent's bedroom door holding her blanket, whining to be let in. xD
