O.k. we are uptodate. We are using a captcha image. I am considering an account on google for recaptcha.

We seem to be getting it from Ripe (Europe) and china at the same time. We might just have to weather this one.

I will try and help out. We had this happen before. Next comes out and out attacks on the servers. Not sure who we pissed off or if it is just our turn in the barrel. :violin:

Alright. I have implemented recaptcha and it seems to be working. Now, if anyone else can register is the question.

Alright, a few changes. I have put all new users on the Newly Registered user group. That means we need to approve their posts. Clash, look for a ? by the user names on the forums. Click on the post and you should see an Approve/Disapprove button. Disapprove it and it goes away, approve it and it posts to the forum. These people also cannot see our membership list.

Second, I have pruned the spammers. Looks like it started at the beginning of Oct.

I believe it has been getting better.

Thanks!

It has been getting better - much better! The spammers I have dealt with have all registered before you instituted the change in version and adoption of the new rules. I haven't seen anyone who registered since then, and I checked about 95% of the people I deleted and banned. This latest change will only keep things in hand!
