I know, but it worked : the aforementionned bots eventually stopped trying to create accounts, and that's all what matters.

You guys do a pretty good job of getting rid of the rogue bots.
The only bots we have now are factorio bot and bing bot, both of which are kept on a tight leash.
Been binge watching Aquasitions Incorporated "The C Team" recently.
A fun spin off of the original D&D game.
Also, the fanbase is quite active, which means lots of fanfiction!

And Google bot and Yahoo bot. Is there any integration for them in the forum, or is that something Bing, Google, and Yahoo had to figure out?
There are 10 types of people: those who get this joke and those who don't.

These bots are crawlers, afaik. They simply scan the forum for posts and if you search for that on the search engine, it will show the scanned posts.

Yep. That's not quite what I was trying to ask, but now that I think about it what I was trying to ask didn't really make any sense.
