Spammers.

Postby mister2 » Wed Nov 12, 2008 10:50 am

I've noticed we've been getting hit a lot lately with spammers. I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm currently in the process to figure out how I can limit the amount of spam posts we get. So please bear with me while I figure out a solution.

Thanks!

Maybe it's in the way that new accounts get created? I can't remember if there was a captcha when creating mine.

There is a captcha. I'm not sure if it's a person or a bot that's posting but I'll have to make it a little more difficult.

I know on other sites I'm a mod at as well as a blog I am admin at we are having loads of spamming issues due to an increase in places using people in addition to typical bots.

Well that would make sense - have a person make a few accounts and then give it to the bots.

THE MACHINES WILL END US ALL!
