We add the hash of the images, we life-ban the IP in question, there is rarely if ever commonality in ip / subnet and they are usually from China or Russia but due to ICANN / subsidiaries sometimes the country codes aren't correct on the whois data, sometimes we can only speculate if it came from China or Russia in the first place due to traffic patterns / behaviors and useragents from logs.
Believe it or not it usually appears to be a legitimate user doing it, an actual person as opposed to a bot, this is based on research of logs as far as time on site, browsing, some even make REAL posts, of course there are bots as well..
These people are fuckbags but they are smart fuckbags, we try to do the best we can but as of late, several admins and mods have been away because of life things simultaneously. I'll make a change to the backend, it will either stop or slow down for a few weeks then BAHMMM, back on like a bitch and another change is needed. I've made HUNDREDS of backend variable changes, firewall fuckery and wrote thousands of lines of collective code.
I am going to change some of the variables for the post processing php script that enables posts / replies, this will stop users that establish a legitimate session or forge a session using a bot with a fake useragent or other techniques and then making a post, session fraud-ing is complicated to detect because the way the data is delivered to the webserver, it is ripped up and recreated at our front end / backend servers.
Hang in there... I'm going to make some additional changes but I don't want to impact legitimate users but I want to stop CP.. SO.. Fuck Russia and China, you will get a JS challenge, every time you visit, sorry, move to a decent country like Greenland or Syria.. D:
We will soon move to another platform, we're just trying to iron out the logistics of a move, there is a lot of data, LOTS of bans and there is only a matter of time until PHP just says FUCK YOU to our platform because it's old AF despite improvements and patches made by myself and past admins / devs.
