Spam!?

Postby Justin » Sat Apr 28, 2012 1:36 pm

Seriously, what's the deal with all this spam.
This seems abnormally bad right now. We have captcha turned on and are banning them frequently.

Sorry for all that. :|

I was enjoying it, It's not often I get to to learn how to find Yugoslavian prostitutes. That's the sort of thing you just don't think to research, but who knows when you will need it?

Maybe appointing another mod would be in order to help with the banning? Would it be possible for us to implement a report post function to help them out?

Hi Guys,

I'm going to talk to Justin and Matt about the issues with spam, we should be able to get this sorted with a few phpBB mods...

I know when I have seen these less than stellar posts, first thing I went looking for was a report or rate or ignore feature. Here I thought those sorts of things were in by default on a forum. :|

Something really ought to be done. 9 out of 10 times I refresh for updates, it's spam. Hell, the spam threads outnumber the legit ones at times on this particular board.
