Default EVERYONE PLEASE READ REGARDING SPAM - 02-04-2009, 02:52 AM

Recently, we have been getting a lot of spammers/spambots. We are doing our best to take care of the situation. However, it is difficult to catch every post so until we can get the problem solved completely, if any of members sees posts that look like spam(ie, w/links to pornographic sites, etc...) please click on the little triangle on that post and report that post to us. One of our moderators will get to it as soon as we see it.

Thank you for your patience and help in this matter.

Someone mentioned putting in a question in the registration form that foils bots and spammers.

I recommend it. I have a phpBB 2.x board that I run, and when I added a simple question to the registration form, I've had zero bots/spammers get on my board in over 18 months.

well, on another board that i moderate on we are currently using this list

http://www.stopforumspam.com/

with a mod for v3 that checks usernames/ips against this list to prevent them from being able to register, etc. if you didnt know about it, its worth a look.
