Default Spam threads getting a (little) smarter

They are starting to use thread titles that don't directly mention streaming anything. So you have to look in the thread and then there are all the links. I'm still banning 'em, so it's not working. When do I get paid?

They have started posting normal posts with spam link smileys in them. Fooled everyone. I only noticed when I quoted the post because it didnt make sense.

I bet vBulletin 5 handles this more effectively.
