I saw spam-spam. The spam told to pay or be spammed. Well that's clever...

I only remembered it too late, but it had an actual gmail account attached to it, and that can be reported to Google. If anyone else sees it, take a screen cap before deleting.

Edit: I saw the post again, blocked, screencapped & reported to Google.

What the fuck.

Basically, it seems the spammer has modified his bots to send messages to stop the spam at the cost of money.

I vote we get more anti-DDOS systems ASAP.

Why would he? It's easier to CLAIM he has done that and collect the money.

Point stands, it's furthering the scam. I wonder if the FTL forums are having similar problems.
Regardless though, it seems the worst has past.

Perfect. But I actually just a minute ago deleted 5 whole posts! Not 90 or 89!

Gentlemen, we appear to be drowning.
We need to petition the Jeff.

Welp, I'm surrendering. I give up. The Emprah no longer protects.

We have failed.
