• The new B5TV.COM is here. We've replaced our 16 year old software with flashy new XenForo install. Registration is open again. Password resets will work again. More info here.


I'd say the question isn't "If?" but rather, is the site supposed to be using cont*ntlink, or has it been hacked?

If this is Antony's way of trying to make the board pay for itself, I don't begrudge him that, even though it makes active words very hard to read. But, if this is a hack, I say Damn their eyes, and away with them!
Ok, I thought I had been hijacked myself and then I saw this thread. Yeah, the colors are blue on blue. It scares me . . . same as 11 year old girls' myspace sites with anime themes.

If it's to pay for the board, that's fine. I am just glad I'm not nuts . . .or infected . . . or both.
Yeah, sorry I should have warned first considering recent events.

It's something I'm trialling, to make a few $$$. :)

I can change the link color.
Okay. I just seem to recall that we went a bit overboard on the ads one time, and Google yanked them because they thought we were cheating.
Yeah, don't go clicky mad. :D

I wonder if it's because I clicked my own links. Sometimes I would genuinely want to visit a site, but that's a no -no.
Why is there a soft porn ad in one of the B5 forums ? I'm not complaining, and its obviously spam, but it is a bit more welcome than all that herbal drug stuff.

Can they just spam some porn in NC 17 instead ? Although obviously, clicking = trojans ....
There have been multiple porn spams overnight plus multiple other forms of spam. Checking my forums for spam is the first thing I do when I swing by the board now. I think overnight I cleared out nine or ten spam posts. It's kind of crazy.
Yes, I delete and ban at least a dozen spammers a day now as well. A bit annoying - can't really deal with the porn posters at work!
I've been tightening the controls against spammers on the other boards i run, and I will be integrating those new things here. That should cut back on spammers.
