Severe Spambot problems!

Postby SeamusFD » Tue Dec 16, 2014 2:58 pm

From about December 8 to today about 200 spam users were registered! I have deleted all of their posts and all of the Users, however I need suggestions on spambot countermeasures. Back months ago I had similar problems, however I managed to fix them all and there has not been problems since. Of course now the dreaded spambots have emerged again and I need any advice you can get!

I deleted about 100 as well, and disabled registrations. I think for now we should require people to contact us on IRC for an account.

I agree, and if they don't contact to activate in about 2 weeks we just delete them, I also believe we need more users, I don't think we should be spending time purging the forums of spambots if nobody uses it...

Is there not some verification service like captcha we can use?
