On the front page, there are about 3 threads that are blocked when I click on them. It's IPB blocking me, not my school's web filter.

Why is this content blocked?

spam bot threads.

Really? I will admit a few of the titles seemed suspicious... But there were some "legit" titles in there. I can't believe that a computer program did that! :P

I don't think those are bots. Bots can't crack reCAPTCHA.

they can crack using forced human labor. Some offices out there, people are given recaptchas to work at and paid.

no, but hackers can just register once and break loose spambots after.

Obviously, a joke. Some people don't understand humour. This is a Windows Forum, so Mac fans probably spammed. See the joke now?

There were a few threads posted yesterday morning that were advertisements for non-computer related goods and services that were under titles that were computer related. I opened atleast 4 threads like that yesterday. Each one was created by a "member" that just joined yesterday and each thread had one reply from a "member" that joined several months ago and even had an avatar pic. However I noticed that the second user had the exact same number of posts as the new user did. I reported the spam to the first mod that I came across that day.
