    And why do we have that happen once a week? What does it even say?

    I don't know it says but it's nothing harmless, it's just a bot trying to spam the fourms at hours of the night when nexon is asleep. Staff should be getting into work soon and it more likely will be cleaned within the hour.

    We get sum of these @ this time of the year when kids and bored adults with a twisted idea of fun are off from school/college. Previous years before this @ the old forum they were spamming pornographic images. :/

    Once a week? Pretty sure I've seen it happen at least once a real life day... though I have been calling the VFMs via Mabinogi Discord to take care of them!

    I'm surprised this is still happening, despite needing to be approved before you post.

    Someone from Korea probably got hardware banned for real money trading and this is how they vent their anger.

    At least its not the pokemon porn and other sick stuff someone was spamming many years ago.

    Basically appears daily, sometimes more than once a day.
    I've been lurking round the forums lately because it's been slow at work.
    The ones in general get removed pretty quickly, but the ones in community take longer.

    Extreme vetting is needed.

    Still surprised how they are getting "approved" so they could post stuff in forums. I thought they are getting approved by forums Mod's??? I guess nope...

    Likely automated system.
    But they basically just keep on starting new email accounts, that kinda way is hard to do background checks on.

    Seems like the MapleStory forum is monitored, since I'm unable to post or make topics there with this account, but am able to do so here.
    I mean my Nexon account is 4+ years old (made prior to MapleStory's Big Bang update), but because my forum account was made earlier this week, and since it has yet to be approved by a CM or whoever does the approvals, I'm stuck with you folks ._.

    Well, as long as you don't find us annoying.

    Nah, you guys (and gals) are great. I asked a question earlier about Talents for new characters/tutorial quests and got answers pretty quick.
    It's just that I'm very casual in Mabi, so I'm not much of a contributor here except for the off-topic discussions.

    That's fine.
    Hope you're able to get back to Maple, feel free to make random discussion here haha

    The text posts are all different in slight ways, so it wouldn't be too easy to make a bot that exclusively vets out the spam.
