    Dennis, Mac - could use some help

    For the last two days spambots have been registering like crazy.
    Most of them are using IP addresses in the stopforumspam.com database.

    Dennis
    Is one of your antispam/antibot gizmos broken?

    Mac
    Could use some help, screening new members.
    Time to earn your moderator stripes....
    Someone else can call everyone a boob.

    I hate spam. Why is beign spammer a thing? Who decides I want to grow up and spam.

    Based on all the boobs and crackpits here I guess your screening process is about a thorough as finding Obama birth certificate.

    I guess it's like growing up to become a telemarketer, but for bigger losers.

    I screen for "bots" and known spammers.
    Actual people get a lot of leeway.

    If a live person starts spamming, we generally let Dennis play with them for a while...

    Pete, I tried to update the DB but I can't do it from where I'm at. I'll have to wait until Sunday night or Monday to see if I can fix it. Thanks for the heads up.

    That's OK.
    He wouldn't recognize a "bot" if it stood up on it's hind legs and bit him on the nose.


    It slowed down a little....
    I only had to deal with four more, since I started this topic.
    I think we actually had a legitimate member join.

    Pete, I just want you to know that we(I) recognize that it is YOU, Pete, who is standing between we site users and the tide of cyber evil, while the OWNER snaps a few photos for his friends and MAC jets off to some exotic location.

    THANKS, PETE.
    If not YOU, WHO?
