They’re back.

General is under attack again.

Can we launch a counter offensive with chain lube threads on solicitation sites?

I would say don't report too many. They are all posting 5 threads. Ban them from one and you get all the threads.

Back again today. I flagged one but more coming.

It's really sad on several levels.

I didn't take you for a big denizen of General. But I suggest not catastrophizing about it

I flag exactly one when I see the flood starting. I keep strange hours, so I figure that might be the first warning.

Thanks, I try to stay out of general but typically eyeball page 1 each morning. I will take it less seriously.

Well, it's embarrassing and it's not even my forum. I was sitting there banning bots thinking the people involved could probably find an honest living. Like prostitution or something.
