Sorry, I got tired of SPAM in Classifieds

Postby mikeyr » Wed Jun 01, 2011 7:34 pm

We have been getting hit with SPAM in the classifieds section since it is the only section that I allowed a non-registered user to post something. I did not like that users registered for posting a car for sale and then never came back because they sold the car so I allowed anyone to post. For the first few years it was ok, only one or 2 SPAM messages a month, then about 6 months ago it climbed to 2 or 3 per day, in the last week its been 5 or 6 per day, so I locked out the classifieds section to guests (non-registered users)

Now if only getting rid of the 30-40 spammers that register every day was that easy.
