Default Lots O' Spam

If you haven't noticed there is a lot more spamming going on with the new system. Until more restrictive measures are put in for new member registration (like email confirmations) we are probably going to continue to see this. I am removing and locking down these accounts as fast as I can find them. Unfortunately it's going to be hard to find them all. That's where you come in. Under every persons name in a post is a little exclamation point just click on it and it will report the offending post directly to my email and I'll take care of it.

Thanks for your help

No problem Sangathor, I got a virus from one of those spammers from the old site so I am all about helping be rid of them!!

At my tattoo forum for registration they have the: enter the messed up letters and numbers you see in the colored picture and then a simple math problem like 3+3=? and you have to input an answer into both question boxes before you can be a registered user. Would something along those lines be applicable for our registration?

It sure would. I hope the people doing the conversion are listening.

Yes I got it. It goes right to my email so no need to re-post here. I'm usually online a few times a day, so you have to give me a little time to get to them.

Yea I figured it wasn't instant, was just a heads up is all. Sorry if I seemed pushy...
