Not intended for regular users.
I've been actively keeping our forum free from bogus and/or spammer user accounts for over 5 years now.
I am 99.5% accurate in my deletions of user accounts that do not meet the muster. Not looking for Praise or Kudos, just want to let everyone know that I'm here and watchful.
To the Spammers..... just keep trying and I'll keep deleting. I have 3 databases that have your IP and known e-mail accounts. Use one here and you are added to our list of banned accounts, e-mail addys, and IP addys.
You know... I actually have fun doing this. Like right when a spammer gets to the page and starts setting up an account..... They just get BANNED then deleted before that account is finnished let alone approved. Is it overkill to do it this way?........ Maybe, but I've heard no complaints nor seen any SHIT posts (I only sleep 5 hrs a day and not always in a row). As an additional Note, I'd like to thank the "StopForumSpam" website (even though they are not a member) for providing the service to stop the A$$holes. Not only do they provide the IP addy, they also provide known email addys as well.
EDIT: just got a list of approx 80K known, active, IP spam address' in just the last 30 days. Will be adding them to the "BANNED" list over the next several days.
