If my e-mail can block spam I know the mods can stop it what is going on here?
It seems to have gotten bad lately

The admin is too busy getting drunk to care that you are offended by gay **** spam.

Registration does have captcha :fyi:

Something like this (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=183917&highlight=spam+bots) works quite well when I have used it in the past.

Valid point. How about minorities should just remain abstinent?

First, the mods have no control over anything other than moving/deleting/merging posts/threads and banning users. So quit bitching that we're not doing something we can't do.

Second, I recommended to Goob over a year ago that he do something as simple as require a user to have X # of posts before they are able to post an image or link. You can see how quickly he has worked to resolve the issue.......


EDIT: Though I find it funny the forum censors words that are commonly heard on primetime TV shows on the "local" channels.....yet it does nothing to stop spam which regularly contains **** images.

should be 100 posts before they can post, guarantee you it will stop the spam

goob probably gets paid for the spam, look how long they stay there for. Does he tell mods to leave it for a while?

seen this on a VB forum today, goob should look into implementing this. "You need five posts before being able to use any of this board's vB code features. Including smilies and linking to URLs."

I wonder if the company that is hosting this website has any feature available to help with the spam.....Then again....I know that it may cost money to add that feature and that is something they might not have available to invest in the forum.....Who knows??? I'd at least like to see someone reply to this thread that is in charge of this forum with an answer to this....

Maybe this has been posted already (i'm not reading 3 pages of this) but why not just ignore them? Usually its a quick good fix of old fashion **** or some words you can't read. They are very easy to spot out though.
