So that means Trailsend has moved up the esoteric, holy chain of CBB command to the holy green...liness. Even more powerful than the very almighty red people.

It's about time. We need extra hands to clean up the spammers.

I've seen a lot of spambots here lately. Other boards now have more subtle spambots who write vaguely relevant replies but have links in their signatures . . . the CBB still gets blatant spambots whose topics are spam in and of themselves.

Why not add something to prevent the bots from registering in the first place? (Without disabling registrations entirely of course)

Good for you, Aszev. Also, good for Trailsend, and good for roninbodhisattva.

I don't want to be one of the "green people" (moderators).
I wouldn't mind being one of the "red people" (MVPs).

I think I turned down nomination as a "red people" because I thought I was turning down nomination as a "green people".

But I've gotta say "Hurrah for our orange person!"
