We're huddling in a cave, hoping the worst of the catastrophe outside will subside, inwardly knowing that alas, it is not to be.

DDO could actually pass for the dark web. If you want to discuss anything, you'd better have direct links or you just can't. I could post an illegal advertisement (god knows some of these ad spams are legally questionable) and it'd disappear in moments, but still exist.

A similar thing has happened to the debate section. In conclusion, we can rebrand the site as an underground debating ring that hosts conversations and debates with guaranteed anonymity protection.

Ha - when did it get this bad though? I looked at the site a few days ago, and you could still see real posts then... at least in a few forums.

It got this bad literally a couple hours ago. I thought the bots were sporadically active but when I logged in airmax was making these stickies. I felt so bad for him tbh he's like one of those kids who builds a tower of cards for his pet ants and some other kid tramples it, but he holds onto that one card to protect the surviving ants.

I'm probably going to make a goodbye thread sooner or later and hang up my cap for good. It's time I think.

This feels terribly redundant and sloppy for something put together by airmax. Nonetheless, this is definitely a step in the right direction.

To truly summarize how bad this spam attack has been:

The first spam thread I found of this recent attack was from the Konttodely account, timestamp 8/4/2018 8:18:20 AM http://www.debate.org... Previous spambots before this account showed up only had 1 to 5 posts, whereas Konttodely as of now has about 80 posts, which I think makes this the first thread of the first account for when the spamming started (at least on the main forum)

As of 2:19PM East Coast time, Konttodely's thread was the 6th thread down from the top on page 75 of the Main forum. There are 25 threads per page, so 25 forums times 75 = 1850

Since a couple other threads were attempted to be bumped over the spam while it was in progress, this indicates over the course of just the past day, there have been just under 1850 spam threads posted in the main section of DDO.

I'm not a conspiracy buff, but it IS kind of weird that all this is happening while other debate platforms are being heavily marketed / launching.

Maybe they were being worked on earlier, and exploded once it became really bad.

I still think it's DebateIsland and TrumpSupporter behind it all.

What the heck happened to this place? Back in around 2015-2016 in high school I always went on this site on my free time. I decided to come back today after I stopped coming. No sign of any social media activity (coincidentally, who ever ran the social media accounts went MIA when I stopped coming here) nothing but Indian scams and spam, the Big Issues section has been 404'd, areas of this site are like ghost towns, like holy moly did management die or something?

What's funny is that when I came to the forums for any sign of life, there was a whole bunch of new posts and I thought everyone was here, but nope, just spams lol. Then I saw this thread.

Eh, management (Juggle) doesn't seem to care really. There was still a fair number of people, though there seems to be quite a bit less now. The spam has seemingly driven quite a few people to other sites.

It was created by some new account with like 12 posts on here. I'm guessing it's a well known member that doesn't want to reveal themselves for that.
