Spam Update

Postby Ben Sobieck » Mon Dec 19, 2011 9:29 am

Forum friends,

I wanted to update everyone about the spam situation. There are spambots who registered prior to the forum fix and were "activated" recently. I've removed the posts and users. I'm not able to weed all these registered spambots out. As of today, there are 9,958 registered users who have not posted anything. Some of them are spam, some of them are not. I'm taking them out as fast as I can, but some still manage to post.

Because of this, I'm going to require a CAPTCHA before posting. It will be easier to read than last time. The aim is to slow down the bots' ability to clog the entire forum before I can put them in my cross hairs.

Thanks for everyone's help, and have a Merry Christmas.

-Ben

Great Ben. These codes are no problem to use.
