Forum Spam
« on: June 25, 2017, 05:26:45 PM »
I've noticed every time I log on and show unread posts there is a ton of spam all the time. I suppose this is part of the reason why my gmail account was blocked initially.

Have you ever thought about implementing a forum mod to prevent the spam posts? Perhaps something like this http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2502 or maybe some other alternatives?

Yes, spammers are a major pain.  You’ve probably noticed already that we just updated to version 2 of the forum software.  Some of the anti-spam tools such as the one in your link will only work with version 2, so we’re working our way toward spam reduction.

Thanks I did notice the update hopefully the changes will help! I can only imagine how much of a nuisance it is. Thank you for taking the time to clean it all up rather quickly daily.

Things looked good for a couple days after the update but I see it unfortunately didn't make much of a difference.
