SPAM

Postby Activity_Dept » Sun May 20, 2007 7:07 pm

Oh yes its a bugger, kinda takes the fun out of it I would be a little more active in the forum except that I spend a couple of hours a day removing them so no time left for Chat.

But this is the Internet for you gotta cop the bad with the good I guess.

Nice to see more peope enjoying the forum though, so its worth it. :+

Keep up the good work, it's a good melting pot of ideas/experiences.
Good to see it's a little more alive these days, anyhow! :grin:

MOds for Spam

I run a forum for paragliding and use the same program you have here. You might want to try installing the following mods as they help fight the spammers and bots.

Hope that helps. If you need a hand let me know.

Thank you for that Paps, I will have a look at them. But I note the harder it gets for SPAMERS the harded it gets for general users so it is a bit of a trade off sometimes. But appreciate the links I will have a good look at them.
