Recent Amount of Spam on This Site
#1
NOTE: Sorry if this is the wrong board for this type of thread Smile I didn't know where it should go.

So I've noticed that there's been quite a bit of spam lately. Is there any way that we can prevent these spammers from creating threads and spamming up the forums?

I already have hidden captcha fields and security questions. For the most part, I've just been banning them and removing their posts as I see it. I usually log into the forums at least 2-3 times daily and pretty much read everything, so I'm usually not too terribly slow for the cleanup. To some degree, the problem is hard to prevent completely. I have no respect for any webmaster who would turn to spam to promote their websites, however. There are far more ethical ways...

I plan on fully deleting all spammer accounts and changing up the security questions soon.

Believe me, it's happened before. It seems like the spambots eventually learn how to get in and run the place down. All I usually need to do to fix the issue is tweak some of the security questions and what not, solves the problem every time.

We got a new spam post this morning from a bot who couldn't even spell "colored" right. That's pretty bad. Tongue
