    Default 2 strange OV Members

    What's up with these two members which permanently appear in the "Currently Active Users" list since many hours, departure+ saginaw? They seem to have the same home page in their contact info and if i try to visit it, my ip-blocker alerts: "Netcat Hijackers Hosting Ukraine"!?

    Well, must be some new technique to get their sites referenced faster :/
    They certainly stay active by refreshing the page regularly, so their profiles appear even if they don't post etc... guess something should be done about that ^^

    It's probably a "bot" constantly refreshing....

    I put the URL in my restricted zone and checked out the site.

    It puports to be an "AdultWikiResource". It has lots of porn phrases, but the paragraphs are so poorly constructed that it doesn't make any sense.

    Since they'll never make it as a porn site, I think that the "dirty" keywords & phrases are just bait. I suspect a darker agenda.

    IF I were a moderator or an administrator on this forum. I'd ban both accounts, block their IP addresses (or if necessary the entire IP block(s)). If that didn't work of if they came back, I'd get creative.

    The 2 accounts are from the same IP address. As for banning them simply due to their constant presence. I see far more web crawlers from Google, Yahoo than from this 1 IP. As I type this there are about 250 web crawlers.


    Apparently username "buddha* can also be added to the list.

    (Maybe i did misunderstood you) Do you compare web crawlers with people which use oldversion for boosting the google rank of their bestially porn sites?
