If we can limit new registrations to starting max of 2 new threads and max of 10 posts in first 24 hours this will cut down a lot, and also not penalise genuine newcomers. Generally the spammers start a new thread for each post, and they vary from 10 to 15 threads started up to as many as 60+.

From memory, todays 160+ posts were from about 8 or so spammers. My suggestion would have probably cut todays spam from 160+ posts down to 8.
I appreciate the effort! However, even after you just did that, they are back.

However, I still don't agree with limiting the threads to 2 new threads. That still lets them in and still allows them to pollute the place, even if it's only 2 posts at a time. That sounds easy to manage, but what happens when it's 50 people, 2 at a time, so 100 new posts?

The issue needs to be addressed upstream and these people shouldn't be allowed to register. They shouldn't be allowed to post 1 post, much less 2, or 10.

Just my opinion.

I logged in this morning, saw the mess and left. No since in trying to wade through it until after you guys had brought in the roto rooter to auger out the shyte.

Each post can be linked to an account. Each account can be linked to an IP address (within the forum software). Each IP can be blocked using a wild card for the last octet (x.y.z.*). This MAY have an impact on others using the same ISP but usually not since these bottom feeders usually use some kind of safe harbor ISP. More often you block entire clusters of spammers with one block.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

Admin found a setting, something about scanning IPs against banned IPs. Anywho, it's turned on now so even tho we may have some new logons, at least the ones we've already banned can't come back.

Looks like this has cleaned up.

Just an update, we did set new securities on here but spam can get past it if it becomes smarter. We'll be there to fix it again.

All the work by all the mod's and admin's is greatly appreciated. It's a thankless job most of the times, so thanks for all the hard work to stop it from trashing the neighborhood.
