clearly, someone has sussed out a way to circumvent the "automated" tools that are currently in place. Maybe it's time to re-examine, and perhaps to fortify, FDN's first-line defenses.

If I understand the implementation correctly here, all that 'spamhunters' can do
is move posts to a hidden 'recycler' forum? I so, that is in fact sufficient.
Most sane people have no real interest in this, but for certain people it's truly a
sickness. They will often suck up and 'brown nose' their way onto the staff,......
Good news is that this type of user has a 'soft centre' and after some repeated prodding will usually just throw their toys out of the pram and resign their position (especially when being told they've overstepped the mark).
That is enough, if a "spamhunter" happens to be on line at the time,...Ok well any way, I can't think of much else to say on this at the moment.@Dasein, At FDN, spamhunters have basically two tools: the ability to move a given post (or thread) and to ban a user. Global powers (such as removing all posts by a given user) are reserved to mods and admins.
Oh,...well, I am not the maker, or designer of the "funcaptcha", so it is not like you are criticizing me,...no problem,I am all for any means to reduce spam' so please don't consider this as a criticism: I went to your funcaptcha link, and was somewhat disappointed that it was the type of captcha that I seem to have the most problem "solving"; so much so that lately when confronted with one, I just go away.
so much so that lately when confronted with one, I just go away
Whatever, I will say that if I have to solve the fun captcha type, it will result in me not hanging around here regularly anymore
What is the output of "date -u +%V$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'"?

They use a shibboleth-type captcha:What is the output of "date -u +%V$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'"?
Seems to work very well...
