Please Report SPAM here

Postby Nobody » Tue Dec 14, 2010 9:29 am

If you see spam on the forum, please reply to this thread with the username of the spammer or send me a PM. This way I'll get an email notification and jump on it as soon as I can.

It appears the spammers are starting to resort to manually registering. I can crank up our defenses more, but that's a bit of an inconvenience to the new users, so I'd rather hold off on that for now.

Thanks for the help.

We had one this morning :mad: Best I can tell by the logs is it was a human and not a bot or forum security hole. Hard to combat those without doing a post queue or some other process that would require our approval for a minimun number posts. That's no fun for anyone.

I am happy to hear it's been quiet since the last episode. I changed up the security question. That has seemed to be pretty effective since I implemented it.
