  • It appears that whatever anti-SPAM routines are used by the hosts are rather outdated.....

    If you need help getting rid of that rabble, I'd love to lend a hand.

  • you are wholehearthly welcome, asragin.
    the problem is, we have a lot of new members subscribing, the majority with russian email accounts. some of them posted spam (viagra and so on), others stayed quiet. what can we do to filter the new members better? actually we use a question for it.

    thnx.

  • A log-in question to verify them as non-bots? I found them equally easy to outwit as capchas....

    Else I would simply put suspectable accounts into a secret group that only has limited clearance, like only able to post in one area, or ask them to "introduce" themselves. If they really are bots, then the routines will kick in faster (they read the number of available areas and the counter rises far faster), and if they're no bots but human SPAMmers, they will quickly lose interest (I think it's safe to assume someone who's not been active in a month after initial registration, is either a leecher, or a SPAMmer....)
