A real idiot that one.
Didn't even advertise anything.
Sad when the spammers can't even spam properly.

I'm not sure they are actually people sitting registering and typing that. Spambots are pretty clever these days and pick up on key words and members names to look legit, then fill a forum with pish!

Another one bites the dust, cheers, Bish.
You are right TT.
I should have said that the idiots can't even get their spam bots to advertise anything.

Need to introduce a new sign-up process, inc a verification code if possible. That usually stops these spambots.

Something needs to be done but we have forwarded suggestions for months/years and it's still the same.

You only have to look at the member list and sort into joined date.

So far today there have been 23 new members and this is repeated for yesterday and the day before and the day before. All of these I imagine are bogus.

This is some sort of automatic process where the inclusion of an encryption code on sign up will eradicate.

The stats are now showing we have 4011 members when in truth genuine members are probably much less than half that.

Are the new accounts just blocked or their ISP's too?

To be fair to Past Pirate, he is passing this onto the forum owner Craig? Who doesn’t appear to take much interest in the forum these days. Perhaps we need to look at moving ownership of the forum to active member(s) to look after? Or we completely start again with a new forum and a new host?

I emailed Craig direct a couple of days ago about setting up a better registration process but no answer so far.
Hoping he will get back to me soon.

Cheers, Jamie.

As I said to Jamie when I responded to his message tonight - I did not see his email the other day as it had been sent to an account I no longer monitor.

Anyone can contact me on [email protected] if they have a problem.

In the mean time, I am implementing a captcha form on the forum sign up page today.

Kind regards
Craig
