Default Cleaning out the trash

Hey Jim, Ang and whomever else..


I see we're getting spammed hard and i know I have given a few options... but what is your method to protecting the site and it's users from the spam....

You can limit the ip by country/state
You could moderator the posts
Setting up membership with more security

Instead of replying to the spam.... just delete it it's make the site look alittle trashy..

Im here to help if i can..

Yeah, I hear ya; it's REALLY gotten bad the last couple weeks...
I've been deleting & banning the vast majority. Lately I've occasionally replied with [email protected]$$ remarks. Didn't realize that would give the impression we're not doing more serious punishment.

No problem, I understand.

I'd like to see more security or whatever when a newbie first signs up. Like it doesn't allow active links or html tags for xxx months or something.
