    Hi Snowth. Yep, those two accounts are duplicate spambots, not because of the identical birthdays but because they both promote the same spam website as their homepage as noted in their individual profiles. If they posted crap when they first joined back in April of this year, then I most probably already banned them when deleting their spam. If they never posted anything, then I'm unable to ban them now as it's past the first month of their membership here. Either way, thanks for the post. ;)

    Looking at Today's Birthdays, I noticed that almost all of them are spammers except for one.

    It would seem that every member having a birthday today is a spam account.

    Yeah, I don't think that's the kind of avatar imagery you'd want on this site, plus they're all females turning 28, hmm something's off I wonder what it could be... :p

    Thanks Snowth. All those accounts were probably banned when they registered accounts, or rather never banned because they never posted any actual spam to get them banned. I'll keep saying it, the one thing I want for Christmas/Three Kings Day present as a moderator is the "Spam Cleaner" button/link back in play with an unlimited time option so spammers can be deleted permanently from the forums, including longer jerks that keep popping back up from time to time.

    Welp, so we'll have to go through the whole day with inappropriate imagery on a family-friendly website. How wonderful. :concern:

    And it would seem these are now gone. Thanks for the report!

    I was concerned about those pictures myself as well.

    And as a New Year's gift, we've got a whole slew of spam accounts with birthdays today! Yay!

    Yep, a whole batch of spamturds who had their accounts banned but still show up as "forum members" within the system. Hopefully Phil can purge them in a more permanent manner. :batty:

    The first official day of the year, we get a reward of spammers.

    Just curious, did Phillip ever get to dispelling those spam accounts from New Year's Day?

    Dunno, but there's a crop of the "ywm"-ending spambots that turned up today, all because the bastwages keep plugging in the same birthdate as part of their fake profiles. :grr:

    Good chunk of the birthdays today are mostly spammers.

    Makes me wish we had more admins here to clean up this junk. :sigh:

    Another huge batch of spambots who were deleted when they joined in the "Today's Birthdays" section. If only they could be purged from the forum's system permanently. :sigh:

    I just really wish that something could be done about it. Sick and tired of seeing them pop up.

    A majority of the birthdays today here on the forum are nothing but female spammers.
