Spamfest

Winston-

You are running a spamfest here...and more...to quote Globtrotter-

"Winston, Please get the spambots, ads, and porn postings under control. This forum is either being targeted or has some serious security issues."


You better get a handle on these assholes infesting your site, or you will start losing regulars.

Agreed. Winston needs to knight some new mods. It seems the three of them havent been on during the most recent spam fest.

I vote all of us are now mods, so we can both delete spam posts and block IP addys of these jerks.

I don't know how these new spammers are getting through the humanizer questions on the registration screen. Weird. Maybe they are human spammers and not bots?

In any case, I'll go ahead and change the humanizer question. Currently it's "What is the third digit of James Bond's agent code number?" which is 7 of course. How are spam bots able to answer that question? Maybe by entering random numbers? I'll think of one that has a more complicated answer.

If that doesn't work, which one of you wants to be a moderator?

I have already installed a feature in this forum where you can delete a user and all his postings with the click of a button. I'm not sure if a mod can use it though, but an admin can. I already deleted the spam bots earlier.

As to kerryxu, I'll just ask him to stop posting nude pictures with no point. Is he a human poster or an autobot?
