    Interesting enough, I haven't still seen here a spambot post.

    That's fine :D

    Yes I know but at this time this is the very first forum I ever seen without a single spam post :eek:

    There's been at least one banning though as far as I know. ;)

    Because this board is a week old? It's not like spambots are generated the instant a site goes online, it can sometimes take months or even years for the activity to really ramp up before it generates the interests of spammers.

    On the other hand I have seen a few forums blitzed by spambots before any real members got to sign up.

    URL was probably posted on a site a spam spider scanned. Don't forget a lot of them are looking for vB or IPB or something else. The bots don't know how to register / post here yet. I pity any human spammer who spams here with this many forum mods / admins camping the forum lol!

    This forum is spawn camped at the moment. Still, enjoy the spam-free era of XenForo because as we all know, eventually her cherry is going to be stolen and she'll no longer be the innocent XenForo we all remember.

    Wow. I can't look at XF the same now before we get hit with spammers. lol :confused:


    I don't think spammers will be too much of a problem. I'm sure once we get one they will be swiftly dealt with and the majority won't even know what happened. :)

    I think that it is a combination of factors:
    1. Registration is not easily accessible via automatic means.
    2. There is very few XF forums on the net, its not yet worth their time to invest in breaking the system for use of exploit.
    3. There is no visible source code for said people to waste their time with.
    This is at least compare to the other common forum software out there that is easily accessible.

    just wait until the spam bots are tweaked for XF... the spam will come :(

    And when that time comes, hopefully there will be great tools to deal with it.

    Some international swearing was going on, if I understood correctly. It's not important, as long as the person is banned :)
