Spammer signups to the forum
« on: December 20, 2008, 08:22:23 AM »
Over the past month there has been an effort by spammers to sign up to this forum to post their spam. Occasionally one or two have been successful, but I have removed their postings and accounts.

The accounts totaled something like 74 new users, all of which are spam. I've had to let these registrations accumulate to design better filters to stop the repeated signup attempts.

As of now, all these accounts have been deleted, with new rules added to cut down on the spam accounts.

Hope the enjoyment of this forum has not been affected too much.
