spammers

Postby mikeyr » Fri Aug 19, 2016 4:53 pm

WOW the spammers have re-discovered this forum. We have had 43 new members in the last week...well only 2 new ones the rest were spammers hoping to get registered. I find it funny that here we are with a "quiet" time on the forum and very few new posts and we are being attacked by spammers registering, most are just bots. Its been a long time (years) since we had this many hits.

If any accidentally got through my checks and PM anyone, please let me know.

again, we are really getting hit by spammers. I just deleted 546 forum membership requests for the month of January. I found a few people that tried to register that I missed (sorry, I missed your request in a timely manner, but you are now registered). The other 540ish, that I deleted were I think all spammers, I hope I didn't delete any valid registrations, but if i did, try it again please and again sorry.

just thought I would mention something odd and good. Yesterday (June 7) we had 0 spam registrations !!! That is the first time in well over a year that no spammers/robots tried to register. Don't feel bad for them, they will catch up :roll:
