[SPAM] Where does bot spam come from? [INQUIRY] [NET DETECTIVE] (21)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2021-01-07 20:09 ID:A2XHXRdb

I once uploaded Kareha onto a server I was running from home, purely just to test the software and study the code. I didn't advertise the board to anybody, and only made three test threads. Amazingly, after having forgotten about the board, and coming back a year later, I found it full of spam and links.

Everybody knows about textboard spam, wakaba's /soc/ board was removed after being spammed to oblivion, the site that wrote the original gazouBBS (futaba's sourcecode) script's demonstration boards were also full of spam comments written in English, so on, we've all seen it.

Where is it actually coming from though? Has anybody ever gone down the rabbithole of internet spam and bots? How do they find no-name sites that nobody visits? What is their end goal? Who actually runs these bots? Is anybody even running these bots or have they been on autopilot for decades? Is there a network of spammers? What is your experience with spam?

Within the past three years or so, "scambaiting" has become a popular genre of youtube and twitch content, with people investigating tech support scammers and robotcallers and whatnot, but I feel like nobody really cares about the rabbithole of people spamming on websites, when it is just as vast and fascinating.

This is why running a textboard is far better compared to an imageboard, no images = no illegal content. Obviously you still get pieces of shit who advertise links, but I can imagine is less of a headache for sysadmins to deal with.

hell, I administrate multiple websites and that "real rap ed woman" spam (which has been going on for a long while now) is getting out of hand in the last few days. I don't even know what is it's goal, but all files it links to are being hosted on different premium file hosts (meaning you need to pay the file host some money to download). Truly getting sick of it.
One more thing, it's man-made. I confirmed this multiple times by watching its patterns (e.g. posting in an existing thread to see which part of his message is being blocked by the regex filter i implemented, making a word play on the blocked part etc)

For some reason this thread's been on my mind for a while now. If you're willing, I'd like to ask a few questions on this topic and maybe turn it into an article if I have the energy for it and the passion on the topic doesn't fizzle away. I won't be making any money on it and I'd keep it as anonymous as you'd want it.

what is the best kareha theme? (6)

1 Name: 406 - Name Not Acceptable : 2022-04-20 17:31 ID:ipltOQ4A

On this site, it's Tanasinn. Hands down. The colors compliment each other.

2 Name: 401 - Unauthorized Name : 2022-04-20 19:39 ID:Heaven

Blue Moon. I love it so much.
My designs on other websites are inspired by its colors.

3 Name: 403 - Name Forbidden : 2022-04-20 21:08 ID:Heaven

Used Pseud0ch because it was the default, and since it's grown on me and I can't imagine using anything else...
In terms of design, Mercury is pretty cool (if it's properly set up, with the roses and Suigintou)

4 Name: 415 - Unsupported Name Type : 2022-04-21 11:40 ID:Heaven

Default one. It's good enough.

5 Name: 403 - Name Forbidden : 2022-05-14 09:29 ID:NA+ZWDIT

Pseud0ch because it's the traditional textboard aesthetic.
Sometimes maybe Buun because it's not too different

6 Name: 408 - Name Request Timeout : 2022-06-21 15:07 ID:JMW1jZqI

Cloudflare is down right now, which means that every web site that decided it was a good idea to forward all their traffic through one central provider is also inaccessible. Fortunately, Channel4 isn't one of those sites, so let's post here until the rest of the internet comes back up again.

[SECRET] Attemptimg to find an old hidden board [HELP][ASSISTANCE REQUIRED] (3)

1 Name: 409 - Name Conflict : 2022-05-25 00:16 ID:cEfv7ssk

I've been looking for years for a board that I found by complete accident a long time ago, and I'm sure someone here must have visited it as well.
All that I remember is that the link to it used to be buried deep inside 7chan's source, but I don't think it is anymore, and that the song "Moskau" by "Dschinghis Khan" played constantly in a loop. I think that song was played on the page that would go up whenever 4chan was down to drive away flooders too, which was the way most people found about it.
This short response thread is the only clear reference to it I've been able to find, which at least proves I'm not misremembering things:

German imageboard Krautchan dies on 13.03.2018 (38)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2018-04-10 10:02 ID:W3C7gXWy

Krautchan.net was a German imageboard that was created on the first of may 2007 as successor site to a previous imageboard called Einskanal that was neglected and closed one month before the creation of Krautchan.
It was the first German imageboard with activity high enough to not be considered obscure, many German internet users and imageboarders used to lurk Krautchan either their whole internet time or just partially. /b/ accumulated over 13 million posts in almost 11 years of existence.
It was known for various trolling actions in Germany. It created various memes that spread through the German net and especially influenced German internet slang.
It was known for the creation of the /int/ board initially called /uk/ after the admin created a refugee for Britchan users that lost their site for a time. The /int/ board over time became the fastest English speaking board outside of 4chan almost reaching the 4444444 GET being faster than all the other boards of the site. The board was known for creating memes such as Polandball, Gondola and making reaction images such as sad frog and feels guy popular. 4chan and various other imageboards copied /int/ as either a place for foreigners to post or on-topic board where "international" things can be discussed. /int/ was a popular place where various foreign imageboard users also went either being targeted by raids or seeking refugee from their imageboard's neglect. This is how through Krautchan memes like Kuruminha and Spurdo spread outside their home country's imageboards.
After the loss of the site's domain the admin decided to abandon the project after being tired of hosting the imageboard for almost 11 years.
Now smaller german boards such as Ernstchan and Kohlchan are trying to overtake the crown of main german imageboard.

Kohlchan is a pretty much a clone of 4chan with all the frogs and wojaks. Many such cases.
