    That was the method I was employing.

    Some people should just go get a fucking life instead of fuck with forums.



    The Italians have a saying. "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." And although they've never won a war or mass-produced a decent car, in this area they are correct.

    Same, I delete and ban. However they dont use the same name or even IP so they quickly resign up.

    What about another type sign up method more secure procedures? I wonder if its a bot or people that sign them up to bypass the secure lettering already in place.

    I have seen a massave increase of spam on forums in the last few weeks. Some have none and others have more spam than posts.

    Another forum I moderated at you had to make 15 or so posts before you could create your own thread. That seemed to cut down a little, BUT some of them started posting spam inside the threads that were already created. It did cut down on the automated ones though.

    I've noticed an increase with other forums as well... I hate to make it more difficult to register (like having to approve every member)... I put a couple things into place, lets see of if it kills these bastards... I'm looking for a way to ban all non-USA IP addresses with no luck as of yet. Most spam bots are from russian originated IPs... I've tried banning clusters of them, but its no use. Damn commies. I'm def not a VBB expert, so if any of my top gunnies know VBB really well and know some tricks, I'm willing to entertain.

    Wish we could spam them back... There's so many of them in so many different locations however that it pretty much be impossible to get revenge, even if every gun forum in the US waged war on spammers with gun spam.
