Anti-Spam system enacted...

Postby tadmin » Thu Feb 24, 2011 10:59 am

This forum has been getting slammed with fraudulent registrations lately. It was impossible to tell the good registrations from the bad. So, I have enabled a different and better CAPTCHA system as well as some challenge questions that must be answered. If you have problems with registering, please contact us at forum@toronado.org and we'll help any way we can!

Thanks,
The Management

Glad to hear that. That's been annoying.

Just an update... The false registrations have stopped. So, it seems to be working! One small battle in the overall war won, with many more to be fought, I am sure!

Please note: There is an ! in the lower-right of every post. This is designed to report spammers to the administrator. I do the best I can to stem the tide, but cannot catch every spammer. Please start using this feature so we can stamp out spammers!

Thanks.

Apparently the anti-spam measures need to be upgraded. See previous post.

I agree. I'll see what I can do.

Sorry for not keeping up... I started a new job about a month ago and have not had much time to moderate the forums.

PLEASE report spammers to the administrator (me) so I can get them deleted faster!!

Thanks,
Mike

I hit that (!) all the time. There are two posters whose accounts should be deleted.

One of them always lifts a sentence or phrase from a previous post. I have no idea what it's supposed to accomplish.

This is the one: najatuw4646

Thanks Otto. I'll keep a closer eye on the notifications (as much as I can).
