Spammers

Unread postby ~Z~ » Tue Mar 07, 2006 3:03 pm

I'm working on some mods to prevent the spammers from registering on this board. Even if one does get through and registers, usually it's always someone that doesn't post, but only registers just to have their spamming website linked. The most sites they post their link on, the higher google ranks them and the more hits they get. If this mod I'm putting in place doesn't stop them from registering, I'll make sure later to keep their account off the member list as well. I installed a small mod today to try to keep them from registering...i'll be tweaking it for the next couple weeks to see how it's running. Just wanted to keep you all up to speed on keeping junk off the board.

Not a single spammer since this was implemented... I'd say it's working so far :)
