well the forum i was talking about uses a pretty old version of the software, so spambots easily get through and we have about 90% spambot and 10% real members (i estimate)
but the band is considering to close the forum anyway, so whatever...

Spammers are annoying. I deleted the thread and the poster's account. If this becomes a bigger problem, I can turn on some options (like e-mail verification) to make it a little more difficult to register. Unfortunately this effects everyone that wants to register, not just spammers.

yep, this is obviously the disadvantage...but i think it's better than having a lot of spam around (or you having to delete stuff all the time)

Count your blessings it isn't an old HTML/PERL/CGI forum. Pain in the bumm when you have over 2 million hits a quarter. You wanna press the red button.


Echo... thanks for the work with Violetprison.
