Spambots...
« on: October 02, 2022, 07:14:14 PM »
Ok, so even after having honeypots and other items in place, it seems we were attracting a lot of spammers.

Thanks goes out to Knez for providing a very effective "Clean-Talk" key that will hopefully keep all the glorious porn and prescription drug links to a minimum.

Thanks again Knez :)

Yes, something seems to be working!

Bots and SPAMMERS?

They where probably registered before the spamfilters where in place. It might be a good idea to clean up all users with 0 posts or all the users with email addresses flagged as spam by the filter.

i am pretty sure that "George Ttextd", "Mary Annxt" and "Louel Lapf" are simply their real names.
