Sorry about the spam. - NEW USER INFO!
« on: November 19, 2012, 08:33:21 AM »
Sorry about the spam.  The bots have figured out my uber secret security questions for registration apparently.

So I switched up the registration questions and also now require a security question to be answered for a new registered person's first 2 posts.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

If it happens again, really all you need to do is 1 report per spam user.  I just kill the users and all their posts so it's easy to do that way.

Thanks guys.

I've just reported someone that has external links/spam in their signature, is that a no-no or is it okay to do? They're an FNG with 1 post ???

It appears on the 14th of December the spam bots found a way in...I have 6 pages of new members to comb through and ban/delete...I removed most if not all of the bogus threads.

Wow!!! I have been absent for a while and the spam got completely out of control! I notified Jeff, who is going to update the forum again and I cleaned up the HUNDREDS of spam posts! Sorry about letting it get so bad and out of control guys. Please report this stuff and I'll step in and take care of it sooner. I only got a couple of reports from the usual member that reports the spam and had no idea it was as bad as it got!

Cheers!
