Spammers

I've noticed since the "upgrade" that the security must have been downgraded letting a lot more spammers in. I reported 3 today. Are the admin considering improving the protective measures?

I've just been sending reports on them too. They seem to come in waves. I'm sure the admins don't like the wasted time and bandwidth, either.

Hey guys,
I have added "Image Verification" when registering, let me know if you notice any difference.

Thanks,

Over 60 new spam threads this morning. Whatever you did and are doing, Admin, it is not working. I frequent several other forums and none of them have problems with spammers getting through to make posts. I suggest you talk to someone who knows how to stop this...... please.

I'm not surprised. I frequent one other bike forum owned by the same company and it has the same problem.

Russian spam for airline tickets and it's a scam too.

My anger management class really pisses me off.

Admin should/needs to add a few community members as admins to be able to knock these "users" offline in a more timely manner.

I'd be willing to volunteer to be one of those quasi-admins.... (seriously.)

Sorry to hear that didn't work, I have sent a request to add SolveMedia to the site which should make it a lot more difficult for spammers to get through.
