Well, if his aim was to make google Chrome believe that this is a russian forum, he succeeded.  Chrome just asked me if I would like the page translated from Russian to English...

I'm reporting 'em as I see them. Though that freaking 60 second wait between reports is annoying. I hope they just ban that whole IP range. Sucks for any legitimate users, but screw 'em. Let 'em prove they're not a spammer.

Re: So who is this thread spamming guy?

Yeah, when this happens, I sweep in and delete the users, which deletes all their posts.  People have emailed me whenever this happens, which has been really helpful.  Please keep emailing me!  jasonrohrer@fastmail.fm

Also, unfortunately, these guys are humans, so there's no way to automatically block them...

We could "quarantine" new users into a separate forum where they must reside for X days before being allowed to post in the main forum, but that sucks too... I want new users to be able to ask questions right away!

Jason, have you ever considered giving someone admin/mod rights for the forum? You won't be around every time this happens.

Re: So who is this thread spamming guy?

I came across this, maybe it'll be helpful in dealing with this problem: http://fluxbb.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=6917

I was searching for info regarding banning IP ranges.
