These spammers are really annoying. Are the mods gonna ban these guys or are they just gonna bury everybody's posts?

What are they even doing, they are advertising a fake number. Looks like a failed ddos attempt or something.

I agreee, spammers are annoying.

I've reported 3 of the posts so far. (one above this one and two later ones).

So annoying. Perhaps if more than 3 posts and/or 5 comments are made in a short time, you have to just complete a quick Captcha to prove your a human operating the account still?

Even if you ban a spammer's IP address, they can get another one and join with that. They can be very hard to get rid of. :( I'm a mod on a different forum, and that has been getting lots of spammers this week, too.

^yes. We ban every single one. Don't blame the mods for the spam, we spend a lot of our voluntary time removing it.
