finally managed to do something about the spam

Post by rgodridge » Tue May 30, 2017 1:26 pm

Hi all,
Annoyingly enough the bord has been flooded with spam of late (at least it's healthy for the ratings)
I've finally managed to hopefully prevent it by asking a couple of security questions, these are what does hmv stand for? and what's the most common speed for records from before the 50s
If we get more spam I'll see what else to do!

It looks like I'm going to have to approve every post...
Clearly that other method has not worked!

Hey Rob, you're going to have to seriously do something about all this spam - even though the young ladies in the pictures on the latest offering look very nice. I haven't looked in on the forum for a while and was shocked to see all this spam. I think a mass deleting of posts and certain new members accounts session is needed. Also a bit of an upgrade in the registration system is urgently required. Good luck with sorting it as it looks like it's going to be a bit of a task for you.

I'm still working out how these idiots get on here, but don't worry it is in hand.
