*Sigh* Seems the spammers are already at it on this board. Sorry people, I don't know how to block them, will find out, but in the meantime there might be some delay before Zinger or I can delete it. Please don't feed them by replying or clicking on any links they provide (then they will know people are reading their spam).

Too bad. I currently only have internet access via libraries and internet cafés, so I can't download or install any mods at the moment. Hopefully I'll be able to try some alternatives next week, until then, I'll log in at least once a day to delete what ever spammers have caused.

Hmm, I can't access the EasyMod control panel since we moved, thus I am unable to install anything new at the moment. I'll try to get some support later this week.

I managed to fix the control panel, so I installed a "delete user" mod. Any tips on good anti spam software appreciated. I'll look around some...

Installed a few mods to keep spammers away, let's see how they manage.

Seems it worked - I've saw that mod (the human test one) on various other boards.

Also, I have a spare vBulletin licence if you wish to ever switch board to something that's got more security & features Smile

Yeah, looks like it's actually working! Not a single bot account since I installed those mods. There were several new accounts everyday before that.
