What's up with the recent influx of spam? Can y'all moderate somehow?

yeah - install some new 'are-you-human' mod during signup. Clearly they've figured out their way around what's there now...

Cheers, Jeff

Sorry Joseph... but I GOTTA do this:

Fellow walking on a beach sees a lamp, picks it up and rubs it. Genie comes out, says "You can have ONE wish!" Fellow thinks a bit, then answers "I'd like a pecker that can touch the ground."

POOF!

His legs disappeared...!

I have added a security user field upon registration. Hopefully this will help a bit better than the default human verification.

That did not help. Over a dozen spams through the night. Any chance to give a few trusted senior members the ability to delete them and disable the offending user at the same time?

Its kinda nice to know that i can trust this single forum for everything i could possibly need in my life. From guidance on valve adjustment to blue pills and fake rolexes.

Not!

Time for forum platform upgrade? .... Or major patching?

Did you guys know that Spam is the most popular food in Hawaii???


I agree with giving some of the old farts, sorry, senior members, the ability to delete these irritating little tw*ts who keep posting spam, & it will give them something to do in there latter years & give them a feeling of importance! (no, not impotence!)

When I said "senior", I meant some trusted folks that have been on this board for a few years and are active on the forum. They have enough history for the admins to look back on and decide who (if any) should be given the admin rights to delete them.

Nothing against age, but I don't think we should give a newby admin rights to delete threads. Those given admin rights could potentially screw things up real quick if they wanted to.

Hi guys, I'm trying to look for another anti-spam plugin that compatible with the site's version of vBulletin and will get something implemented to help out.

Sorry for any inconvenience.
