Vroman, your suggestions have not worked. If I add a ban-word for Kitchen, he just writes it K-I-T-C-H-E-N. Point me to a PROVEN method to resolve that doesn't force our general users to jump through hoops, and I'll consider it. Posting "No one listens" for every bot posts is not helpful at all.

Sorry, I never heard that you had implemented anything so I guessed nothing had been done. I am sort of used to admins not giving a crap and thus why I guessed so.

I am also own a phpbb board as well. Luckily this spam bot has not visited me. However I will do some research to help us both avoid it.

No worries. I detest this spam as well.

I've done some research on the matter, and apparently it's a real dude. Apparently you can dig up his person phone number without too much trouble, but he'll just tell you to #$%^ off, since I guess this isn't in any way illegal. I've combed a lot of other forums plagued with this problem, and I've found nothing but dead ends :(

Any help resolving this is appreciated. I'm also not masterful in the ways of phpbb, so I'll need some level of instructions if a fix requires monkeying with the php scripts. I'm also a bit reluctant to outright ban the word "Kitchen". I might be wrong, but I imagine general traffic on the forums just ignores this sort of thing, while it only offends a few diehard forums members. That said, I'd still love to murder this bot once and for all.

Thanks muchly for taking a look. Hope you have more luck finding something that I did.

Yeah, I've noticed the bots getting creative with their spelling.

Oh well. I guess that's why you've got me. Richard, I hope you don't regret giving me mod status?

What happens if you ban part of a word, such that if someone posts that part, it gets autobanned.

For example, banning any post with the part of the word "chen" (as in kit-chen).

Maybe banning the word kitchen, even if there are other symbols in between (any non-alphabet symbol, that is), so even if he writes k-i-t-c-h-e-n or k i t c h e n , he still gets banned. And i can't think of any word that starts with chen or ends with kitch. Also can't you semi-ban someone, so if by any tiny chance you got a non-bot, you can unban him?
but still, can't anyone program an anti-bot virus that tracks down the IP and destroys his computer or something???

An anti-bot virus could get you up to 10+ years imprisonment in most countries if you get caught. Not worth it in my mind.

It falls under the same general law for Hacking.

In Canada Hacking, or producing computer viruses will probably get you 10-15 years imprisonment. Probably similar for US.

you really think they would bother to catch the guy who made the anti-spam-virus when they can't even be bothered to stop the world hated scourge that is spam... pffft.

Well knowing politicians and the fact that spammers are rich... you could be right.
