Re: SPAM -Update

Ok.. I added some questions to the registration process to stop a "BOT" from automatically registering on the Forum.. I also added a way to check emails & IP address of known spammers against a collected DB that tracks this stuff.. so that should help as well..

Still looking at a way to limit the number of posts and possibly having another check prior to creating or adding a post..

I will keep everyone updated on my progress..

Re: SPAM

Some sites won't let me post more than one message per minute.

As we all do, I thank you, Jeff, for your work here.

Re: SPAM

Yeah, but what about use "Rapid Fire" types, eh?

Just kidding, of course. I think it is a great idea. Anything to help keep those spammers at bay.

I can't really understand why they do it, is there actually anybody who buys in to their schemes?

Re: SPAM

I was thinking the same thing. Also telemarketing. Do people really buy? I guess they do. There was a telemarketing ring busted up that sold car warranty's and they made millions over the phone. Strange to me too. Anyway, thanks again jeff for all your work.

Re: SPAM

Hi: JeffZ...As all have said... thanks for what you and Gbaglo have done to restore the decorum of the site. I find it amazing there are so many people out there determined to spoil others fun. Thanks again. Alf

Re: SPAM

Wow, two minutes seems like forever when you want to add posts to two threads in a row.
On a photography forum I frequent the 20 seconds they set sometimes seems long.
