Loads of spam - Neelis - 12-05-2016

There's quite a bit of spam on the forum (sometimes there's more threads started by these "posters" than others), I try to report everything I encounter. Are there other things we can do to help keep the spam messages off the board?

I've noticed this nonsense, too. Wonder if the Raptor Squad is available for hire? Sic 'em!

It's getting worse again. Guys, I think you should disable the option to post without having signed up/ logged in. Make it read-only for non members.

Thanks for reporting this. Have been so busy recently that I haven't been able to put the time into this forum. We really need some more staff! In fact Neelis, check your PMs.

As for the spams, nobody should be able to post without being registered, but somehow the registrations are allowing these spam accounts to get through. When we opened the forum it stopped all spam as they had to verify by email and that usually stumps them as the emails they entered weren't real. Guess they figured out how to open doors...

Have changed some settings. Shouldn't see anymore spam. Sorry about this! I hope nobody tried to buy any viagra...
