It has come to my attention that we've someone attracted a metric gigabyte (since I doubt internets can be measured in tons) of spam bots, the most recent actually seeming like normal people with several links hidden in their text (usually a different link for every letter in a section of a sentence).

As hilarious as some may be, until ShadowDragon gets a new forum (if this project should ever continue and he actually get said new forum), a temporary rule is being put into place.

All actual new members must post their first post in the Newbie Discussion forum and include the phrase "I am not Gladius" inside their post, be it in the body or in paranthesis at the end or wherever. This is a preventive measure, just incase we do get a new member that is not a spam bot, even with the chances being as extremely low for that as they may be.

Oh, and these bots are hilarious if you look at the hidden links. They're all links to searchs; one even goes to a search for "popcorn," another is embedded within a single period, real easy to slip up and click that one, neh?
