Greetings GameSpotters!

Seems like we've come under a bit of a spam attack this morning, but don't worry. We're working on fixing it.

It's very, VERY important that you DO NOT POST IN A THREAD THAT IS VERY CLEARLY SPAM.We're "nuking" these accounts, and should you post in one, your account will get caught in the crossfire (this is a bad thing).

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. In the meantime, here's a frustrated otter:

I've notice an influx of new users lately, which is great. However, I've noticed with several users that they'll create a topic, which seems engage-worthy, but they'll have a link from Youtube or Wikipedia (mostly these two sites) in their post. They don't normally hyperlink it and it's placed in a way that seems like they intentionally hid it. Are we to assume that it's spam and/or advertisement?

@SOedipus: That's a great question. Posts that link to YouTube or Wikipedia shouldn't cause our spam filter software to trigger. So feel free to engage.

That sounds like a horrible flaw to whatever is being done to find and ban these accounts. Unless the act of responding to one of those threads itself is a ban-able offense for some reason.

What's a spam board? Is that a board you use to cut your spam?

Nice advice Gamespot Staff.

But you may look at getting a few more mods on GD also, it seems the mods you had are either gone or on half-time :D

Why does it take so long for you guys to clean this shit up? I can't remember the last time I looked at the GD forums and didn't see spam. Sometimes the spam is up for 48 hours or more, wtf are you guys doing?

@GameSpot: Im new to this forum but I do read gamespot from time to time, are we allowed to link games from steam? If so I need to know so I can delete a post I made a sec ago about a mmorpg adventure game.
