Mike is battling the spambots

Post by Bookup »

It takes me hours to edit out the users and posts from the spambots. It takes them seconds to replace those posts.

I've changed the password on the forum. There are still hundreds of spam accounts that have access. Finding their posts, going to their member records, setting it to delete their IP and their posts, and confirming the deletion all take a chuck of time.

Hi Mike:

This is indeed inconvenient. I suggest enlisting a few active and trustworthy users to help delete posts. Meanwhile, any new users who want to register must send an email for review. Also, enabling a reasonably challenging Captcha could stop most bots.
