Agree. Bad spam day - like three accounts.

FYI I don't delete those accounts, I ban them permantly so that they can't re-create a new account using the same email address and/or I.P. address. Out of the 4,020 accounts maybe 15 are spammers.

Might help, might not....but can't hurt to try <g>.

Are the accounts generally created by a person or an automated script? Can you know which it is? That's why they have those little "type what you see in the image below" (i.e. tGhPF) boxes on some sites, right?

Think it's a person.

I believe the next version of the forum software (upgrade in a couple of months) will have a stronger registration component like you mentioned.

Spambots have been getting in a little more frequently over the past 24hrs.

I've just turned on banning for all accounts that want to join with @mail.ru and @bk.ru addresses (Russian location). Two of the spam accounts have originated from here and I don't think there are any Russian accounts currently in the VAF Forums.

Does your board software have an antispam plugin? My wordpress site has one and it catches most of the spam that gets posted to my blog. Maybe Dan )_( could carve one up and make a lot of money.

Sure.... I know.

Yep. Adding @mail.ru to the not allowed list will help a LOT!

The cool large red arrow sure points it out. I swear it was not there when I posted that message! Really! Truly! It was an old computer in an FBO! Yeah, that's the ticket!

Default Going to Russia next month

Will have withdrawal problems I'm sure but will not be making any posts during the latter part of September. Hope that pleasure is replaced by a great experience.

No worries, Bob. You'll be able to post!!! It just filters out people registering a new account with a 'name'@mail.ru email address. Yours will work just fine.
