Maybe the admins should also create accounts under the names of common homebrew apps or devices, so spammers don't get names like "Savemii" or whatever his name was.

EDIT: Actually it was syncmii

To be perfectly honest I actually felt kinda bad about posting this. I initially felt like it would only give them the attention that they seek. But I eventually figured it was the best thing to do in order to inform people that yes, we have a problem and we're doing all we can to resolve it. Also, I just think it's nice for people to know what's going on in this case so they don't think there's a bunch of idiots on the forum; just one idiot. (Why someone would choose a Wii homebrew forum of all places to do this is completely beyond me by the way). Hopefully they've stopped now as we haven't had any of these idiots in a record-breaking 4 days.

LOL LOL but seeing those well the couple that are here at least made me laugh, and still just thinking about it, I crack up. Sometimes with post like that at random I wonder if its not some half bot half real person does forum searches just for the hell of it to see what kind of people there are or if they can hack the forum itself, why that I wouldn't know, but a good laugh at the stupids anyway.

/me hopes he isn't seen as one

This doesn't, of course, mean that we shouldn't answer them, right? There is still a chance that there is actually someone who really doesn't understand things we take for granted. A very small chance, but it's there.

You have two options when you see one of these posts.

1)Waste your time seriously answering the post only to receive no response or a very rude response (the latter being the nail in the coffin to invoke a rise out of you and/or other members)

2)Report the post so someone checks it to see if it matches up with the data used by the (for lack of a better term) 'dumb question spammer'. If the post is still there 4-6 hours after you reported it, then as I said in my original post here you can take that as a green light to go ahead and respond to it.

I believe starting this thread might be exactly what they wanted! This kind of attention just might fuel the kinda behaviors that started this dilemma in the first place! I think we should just lay back and see what comes up! if the problem escalates than lets deal from there.! It just seems that were giving them/him/her, exactly what they wanted!! or even possibly making a big deal out of nothing..!!! what do you think?

Another way of coming about it would be, after there rude episode or whatever you want to call it! Deny that person help and move on and if that oersin comes back on as a different user check it out reply and once again if you had problems with them .... Deny that person help infact start a thread with all the usernames it could possibly be!

of course just brainstorming!
