Spam on this Site

Postby john ford » Sat Mar 25, 2006 11:16 am

Maybe the time has come that anyone posting on this site must register first, in order to stop these sad people mucking it up for all of us. What are your views on this Admin ?

At present you have to register to post. This is because I spent at least half an hour deleting about 50 spam messages recently from non registered spammers. However we are still getting spam postings from people who register. There is not much I can do about this except to upgrade the software so that you have to enter a code in order to register. I might get round to this eventually but it is not foolproof and the current level of spam is manageable. I do regret not allowing anonymous postings but there is no alternative at the moment.

You now have to enter a visual code to register which should help to cut down on the spam some more.

I have made it harder for spammers, they now have to activate their account as well as enter a visual code.

I have deleted about 300 spammers from the memberlist. Hopefully no genuine members have been removed but if you have been deleted inadvertently then please accept my apologies and reregister.

Thanks, Admin.
