nothing can frustrate users faster than captchas! but yes, thanks to that section being the part where they don't require points to post, this causes chaos. these spam bots are everywhere and it takes even the over moderated of sites busy with locking, moving and banning/deleting of said account.

What we need is a spambot of our own to fend off the invading forces. A champion if you will!

This is what happens when you outsource the upkeep of your slowly decaying website to Moldova.

Everyone on CR could help out the mods with this. All you have to do is report the post. This will give the mods info that such and such person has posted the spam, and it only needs to be the first post with that name on it. The mods will get rid of that person.

It's been days now and we have yet to see an official announcement or change in posting policy on how they are going to stop this crap. Lock down the help section for people with a certain number of CR points/posts temporarily and create a separate section for tickets for people who don't have enough points

This is already a thing. You need 500 CR points to create a new thread. It took me 3 years to get that.

The Help forums are an exception to that requirement.

Whoever it is, they seem really dedicated to working around whatever measures CR put in place to block spam.

Even the capchas aren't stopping them. What do these spammers hope to gain?

Since they really are confined to the Help sections, I expect it is more malicious than anything else. As there literally is nothing else to gain.
