Holy Shit, Maybe the bashers were behind the recent spamming

Postby Winston » May 26th, 2009, 2:01 am

I wonder if the bashers were behind the recent spamming of this board. I made the humanizer question so that a spam bot couldn't answer it (What is the third digit of James Bond's agent code name 00?) so I wonder how spam bots got past that. Normally that question stops spam bots from auto registering. But you never know.

Those links though, were way too commercial to have been the bashers' work. So I'm not sure. But it's odd that in the past few days, two spam accounts have got onto this board in a row. That's unusual and made me wonder. After all, they did threaten to spam this board if I banned them.

But anyhow, problem solved, because I just installed a new mod here that allows me to delete a spammer and all their posts with the click of a button.

phpBB3 already has that in its admin panel, but phpBB2 doesn't. I was considering upgrading this forum to phpBB3, due to this spam problem. But now, with the mod, maybe it's not necessary.
