    That's actually a pretty good question. What happens is when the bots come back after being banned, the saved cookies automatically log them in and they are displayed as being online. They wont be able to post any more spam once they have been banned though and they can't do anything on the forum.

    I remember a while back, people asked for NHOCuteGirlUK to be unbanned, because they thought it was a genuine female. I did it to prove it was a bot. There was all sorts of hell to pay that day...

    Thing is she made quite a contribution to the community for a bot. Even throwing in some Logic pro tips for good measure..

    Ah what NhocCuteGirlUK is listed as a currently active user right now. That doesn't make sense unless she/it was just banned recently?

    I've changed the colour of pink for banned members back to normal colours so they don't stand out so much. Apparently banned members can still login to the forum. They just get a "You have been banned" message and they can't even view anything or post. So it's just a spammers program running on automation logging the user in and then trying to post spam to piss us all off!
