There was a double-step process to prove you were human before you could register. The human(s) behind the bots figured out how to defeat that. New procedures have been put in place. When the bots inevitably find a way around those new steps will be taken.

They posted it as they were being banned. Remarkable timing.

I have not sen the Korean posts here but I am a member of another forum based in the UK. That forum, mainly members are either members or veterans of the British forces has been buried for the past three weeks in posts from China and all the posts are in their heathen gibberish except for the names of American universities . Members who can read Chinese have said the posts are all ads for faked diplomas with faked transcripts to match. No idea why they post in Chinese on a British based English language forum. As soon as one gets banned about user pops up.

Edited to add:

I just checked back at the British military forum I visit. Their Chinese friend or friends have just started 8 new threads in 4 minutes with the same username. These are, for a change, in English, asking for quotes from notable people. Makes me wonder if it seeking to fish for usernames hoping that the notable quote will provide a password for the username of the poster. Very very odd.

Thank you for your proactive measures. I understand there's only so much that can be done, but you're doing what you can.

Very very odd.I have a relative in Air Force Operations Intelligence who says it's just routine practice for them for honing their skills in case of a cyber war.
