All the spam on here lately

Postby Renee class of '80 » Fri Jul 17, 2015 3:43 pm

Is there anyway to start screening posts? This yahoo below keeps infiltrating most of the threads left on here from everyone. Would really appreciate serious posters to reply, or once they get caught, to ban the poster's email from posting? Thanks

We're removing it as fast as we can. The users have been banned by email and by IP, it doesn't make a difference as I suspect it's all computer automated and probably people's infected computers that are doing the posting. They just use a different IP and email address the next time.

We recently performed some updates and changed the login process in an attempt to reduce the number of people getting through and it seems to be helping (this is only the second spammer to get through since the upgrade).

Good luck,
