Question Can we beat the scammers/spammers?

Could we not have a code attached to our thread headers so that we know to ignore that particular new thread?

I know that not everyone will be able to grasp the concept or even remember to do it, but I'll start with a suggestion;
Put a V.before the new thread header,ie;
V.What is the best thing about your 'bike?
or
V.Tell a joke a day thread.

Haven't seen the spammers hit this forum this hard in a long time. I just report them as quick as i see them. Hopefully they'll see we step on their necks quick here and they just go away.

Actually what's the objectives of the spammers flooding the site ?
Are they from another bike forum, some hackers / trolls with some past hate experience with the site, or just a prankster who are here today - gone tomorrow ?

I'm sure the admin has their IP address which could bar them from future registration ?

I believe the spammer's sole reason for being is to cause me great mental stress.
Little do they realize a plastic wrapper or urban rapper is more effective.

The reason they do this is to improve the Google ranking of the sites they link to. Google improves the ranking of a site by the number of bigger sites (like this one) that link to it.

An are you a human or are you a program test on the registration page will eliminate 99% of the spam.

Both good points!

These spiders are out to get numbers. They don't try and really sell you anything.

They have to upgrade this forum site or it will just get more spiders. IMO

Programs that shut your computer down don't have a point either. That's what is so damn irritating about most of the crap floating around on the web. It causes problems but really for no reason.

Because it serves no reason its harder to have a solution. Hack for the hack of it! Spider program for the hack of it. And so on.............
