    Bot threads are annoying, what can be done about it?

    Every day around this time advertising bots spam the forum and it is becoming more of a problem.

    Is there any plans in order to combat these bots?

    Does anyone have any ideas that may be able to stop this from happening?

    I don't think mods enjoy having to delete spam either so maybe can help as a bit of quality of life.

    Thoughts?

    They already have filters that block the vast majority of spam. Unfortunately some does get through and there's nothing to stop it. Just report the spam and the mods will delete it. That's all we can do.

    Yup.

    The problem is much bigger than you realize and many, many of the spam posts are not bots, but live human beings going through all the verfiication steps, laying the ground work for future spam posts. As soon as you figure out how to stop spam, I'm sure every email provider in the world will want to hire you.
