I have seen at least 6 new blogs in the last 10 minutes by adbots, all named "buy (insert product here)".
Someone had better stop this fast.
How are you finding all these blogs by the way? When I view the User Blogs page all I see are regular user blogs, no adbot blogs.
same here..according to a Mod he had only delete like 6 in the past week...i honestly don't see anything lol..and i've been purposely looking for them..

They were showing up in the "What's Happening" bar one after another. It was ridiculous.
I've been seeing it in the revent activity thing on the top right corner. It's pretty spamtastic :(
Holy ***, another wave just happened! I'm seeing 4 more!
God, there's even more of them now. How are they commenting on nonexistent blog posts, remaining anonymous, and spamming the what's happing bar?
During the Wii's console cycle, only 2 games got a perfect score from GI. Both were Zelda games.
gg, Nintendo. gg.
they are now using their names as the advertisements.. here are some of the pages..
this is truly sad and discouraging..
Anonymous power member - level 10 online?
will there ever be an end to the SPPPPPAAAAAM!!!! he has corrupted so much already.. :'(
i really wish the report button didn't send me to outlook it should be built into the site.. my computer is slow as hell and i don't have outlook configured..
@lawlwaitwhat: The Blog posts exist, but blog posts don't show up in the Blog section until a user is level 5. These bots only post one blog, so they stay at level 1.
Suggestion: Blog posts can be made only at level 2 or 3?
Okay, they seem to be gone for now. by the way, the reason they're showing up in the first place is from the anonymous "comments" i can't see, so is there any way to stop those, mods? or maybe put one of those anti-bot questions in the account registration (think theyre called captchas)? just a reccomendation.
Yeah this is getting outta hand guys. There needs to be a keycode that new members have to fill out like the case-sensitive alpha numeric ones you get on sites like craigslist to prevent bots like this.
they should make you have to enter a short little captcha for everything until your lv 5. or something.
i'm pretty sure those are the captchas i just mentioned, Bishop. oh, and also... gameinformer.com/.../131790.aspx
