It is accurate (without the absolute)It would be better phrased as "Attempting to use technical solutions to solve behavioral problems is doomed to failure in 90% of the cases"

Quote from: efk on January 27, 2021, 06:57:19 PMIs this considered as technical solution? My solution worked 100% instantly, and it is supposed to work 99% of time.https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=575212.0

They just want to appear like they're human .

Quote from: landyvlad on February 01, 2021, 06:48:36 PMNo need to get so worked up about it, and rather diverges from my original post I think. But whatever floats your boat.
Quote from: Kindred on February 02, 2021, 12:01:17 AMNo. Dealing with bots and spammersis not a social issue its always been a technical issue. Therefore your example is not indicative that my statement is flawed in any way

Try not to go with insta deletion unless if you must to do it.- Now going with bans is not an option anymore, your job is to give him back his PRIMARY account, why - because his powers are there. Remove his avatar and set his Post count to 1, let him be powerless, he won't be able to send private messages and he will post but he will not be sure what's going on.
