    Default We have won the spambot war...

    ...for now.

    Thanks to Gabi for keeping them at bay, and to kurai for the suggestion. Of course, I have a bad feeling this may be a double-edged sword for some TPMers who we know aren't spambots (at least we have the Discord).

    If we really won, we should be able to ask for some war reparations... Hey wait, they only have porn to offer.

    Heh. Good one, Mikachu. But I'm afraid this is only a temporary solution. It will deter any potential new members from sticking around, and as long as the database remains broken there isn't much we can do. We need Kevin.

    I'm not sure this place has the ability to win anything at this point.

    We have won.

    When the spambots found themselves no longer able to make topics in the Misc. Stuff forum, I thought that would be a victory for us. But to see them posting in topics in The Pokemasters Website and Forums area (and subsequently in the TPM News subforum), they found another way to continue to cause problems here. Too bad it led to their eventual downfall (I have absolutely no sympathy for banned spambots; they got just what they deserved).

    Now that TPM is pretty much spambot-free, I am slightly tempted to make a post in FanArt with a picture to cement our victory (those of you who are on Discord have probably seen the picture I speak of, but for those of you here who have not, I'll consider posting it on TPM).

    Your brazen hatred of spambots shows that there can never truly be peace
