lol :lol:

Yea, that sucked. Apparently there is good money in that business. They paid a very sophisticated person to write a custom script to spam just this forum. This person apparently had lots of compromised systems under his control too.

I changed stuff around and banned some IP blocks so it won't work again. They can always pay a hacker though. Not much you can do about that.

Thanks for cleaning it up! I banned all the usernames (I realized that I could copy and paste into a list, then paste it into the banning screen and do them all at once, so that wasn't too odious. I was deleting the contents of the posts, but for me that is only a one-at-a-time job. Do you have a way to do it all at once?

No, it's a one at a time thing. I have an easier way to delete posts with the other web tool, but I don't use that because I want to delete the users and block their IP ranges.

I had to limit the ranges I blocked though because most of these were clearly systems that had been hacked and used like a proxy.

So, did it do any good for me to do all that banning and deleting?

another option to save the floor would be to put two plates on the floor, where the barbell touches the floor. but this would be like cheating at deadlifts, cause of the shorter range of motion, or not? or do you think it wouldn't make a huge difference between on the floor and about 5cm higher?
