The recent spike in spam on the forum

Postby Sharko » Mon Feb 03, 2020 3:09 pm

Hi Mr. Lundman,

I see that we are experiencing an increase in spam on the forum lately. Would you like some help in moderating the forum? I would be happy to log in daily for a while and zap the stuff. I think you know how to reach me via email from registration data? If not, I can supply credentials.

As a quick fix, I suggest disabling new user registration temporarily and banning spamming accounts.

Disabled the requirement for secret word after someone complained, but man did the spammers take over quickly. So its back to secret word again.
