Anti Spam Code

Post by water01 » Sun Aug 11, 2019 4:52 pm

I have implemented a new piece of code to automagically weed out spammers by checking the Stop Forum Spam database.

If anyone spots any problems with the Forum that may be caused by this, can you post on this topic please.

Before there are anymore smart cracks about this it is only as good as the latest database, and spammers are always moving IP addresses and emails. It has already caught some, but inevitably some will sneak through. Even the Google "I am not a robot" is not catching them either!!

That was a massive amount today, and the weird thing is it's never interesting spam so what's the point? (in the spam not the hard work put in to stop it from you guys)

That's a good question- what's the point of all this.
