Money my friend.
This has been happening for quite a while now(both the spam and threads regarding that said spam ). My guess would be they are having issues stopping their spam while also not affecting normal newbie users. I'm guessing mods probably discussed this already but why don't you try with something like "first 3 posts require mod approval"(bonus idea, have this approval thingy only active between those hours that the spam happens). Not too much work for mods to approve new posts, spam is stopped and its not too much of a restriction for real new members. This is the best solution my drunk brain can think off at 8 am
He is an astrologer and is getting calls to his Indian mobile from the Indian BHW members. He gets calls and that's why he is doing this everyday. Guess what.
That's what I meant.
What do you think his motivation is? Why do most spammers do anything? I think you can answer those questions yourself very easily.
You are drunk at 8 am ?
There has been all kinds of morning spam threads over some time... tarot, money loans, mail order brides, stolen CC dumps etc, etc. I guess someone somewhere from time to time actually falls for what they are offering and they are profiting, otherwise they would stop.
Don't judge, party lasted untill 7..
I am not judging - I am awake from 12:45 AM last night. lol

The one-stop solution just allows every first 10 threads of a new user after a mod review then nobody will try this as all their first post will go to moderation automatically. Mods can come on their time zone and then approve all new accounts post which they found appropriate.
its not happened one time but also happened in the past. But today it has been spammed to death.
BHW is the best forum of IM. Must should take this thing very seriously
It's all automated. They are not tracking results of conversions per forum. They don't go back and check if their threads went live. They create new accounts every day.
It slows them down for the front end, but it doesn't stop it.
We get hundreds of threads and posts caught in our spam traps each day and we like to think we catch the majority.
The report button is your friend, hit it and they are dealt with as a priority issue.
Unfortunately, as with all platforms, some do get through. We endeavour to ensure the usability of BHW remains high for all, at all times, and the best way for all members to assist with this is by continuing to hit the Report button.
We appreciate your patience whilst we work out how to manage new attack vectors. Which can take time.
Blocking the usability of BHW for new members has to be managed against the desire to welcome and assist as many real users as possible. With the new BHW Beta, currently being tested by mods, Exec’s and Jr. Execs (access to Jr. VIP’s coming this week) we are stretched a bit thin and we appreciate all the assistance you guys can provide in the war against spam on our community.
