Killing Spam

Postby CorrPerformance » Thu Jan 06, 2011 2:23 am

Admins, the spam in this forum is getting a bit out of hand. When is some one going to get a handle on this issue? :cry:

Agreed. A simple confirmation loop for joining the board should solve the problem. People will stop using the board if they keep having to wade through this crap.

You are right there have been quite a few forums I have quit visiting because of the massive spam flare ups. :evil:

CAPTCHA will slow it down but a truly determined hackman will employ humans to do this step. :roll:

Hi Guys
CAPTCHA is already employed on this forum,
the spam that is being generated is by humans.
It has flared up in the last two week as our office has been closed and i was unable to delete it all daily.
It should be back on track now.

Cheers

I suppose banning IP ranges is out of the question...

Adam, seeing as how there have been eight threads started in this forum alone since your last post, more aggressive actions might need to be taken.

It is a shame that a "person" is doing this.. none of the so called posts are even useful..

It would be one thing if they were adverts for car parts or something.. But NOBODY CARES ABOUT IPOD MOVIE CONVERTERS.

There are thousands of free applications that do that already.
