Spamming - Please Read

Unread post by sean6m » Fri Dec 29, 2006 6:51 pm

Over the last 6 months the my PHPBB web forum and most othershave been hit with (Automated and Human) SPAMMERS. Most of this spam is "PORN" or sales, I have been allowing people to register and post automatically and the spammers have taken advantage of this, what this does is make more work for me deleting the spam posts that they put on the site.

I have decided to start using a 3rd party anti spam utility called bbprotection, it uses a database that checks registration and all posts for spam. If you have been tagged as spam for registration or posting please contact me so I can fix the problem.

Thanks

Sean
