    I saw one of those Chinese spam bots apply that thread "prefix" in the title, so I wanted to test it out here in the Test Forum.

    I'm assuming this is a new feature as I've never seen it before. Well, perhaps I've just never noticed it until now.

    What is up with those Asian text posts? Never saw that on old platform. I just gave up on reporting them, it happens too fast and frequent :(

    Yes, that Chinese spam became aggressive after the forum migration to XenForo. It must be a bot that targets XenForo-based forums.

    Reporting one of the threads per user is enough, but they've become much more frequent in the last couple of weeks.

    I'm actually surprised the admins haven't blacklisted Chinese characters or "Baba Ji" yet, but I assume they'll get to it eventually.

    Hopefully something will stop it, I hate seeing the home section flooded with that garbage. It ruins my browsing pleasure. :(

    Oh, I just saw poll. Should be an option for "begging threads" Definitely the posts I hate the most...

    I see prefix and suffix, but no remix.

    What's up with that?

    It's very annoying to see the homepage flooded with the Chinese spam and the Indian witch doctor or whatever calls himself. I think that the begging threads are the nature of the beast when it comes to the type of forum that this is. While it is annoying, it's kind of expected when somebody is a noob that they to want to beg for help. At least some of those noobs could go on to find success somewhere down the track. I personally hate it when people come here to drop a link to their POS website and expect it to generate heaps of visitors and I'm reporting them quite often.
