Spammers...

Postby IanH » Thu Aug 31, 2017 6:09 pm

Currently undergoing a flood of spammers signing up and posting clickbait garbage.

I'll work through and delete when I see them, about 400 posts today so far.

Yup, I saw some of those posts appearing. Keep fighting the good fight.

Can you do an IP ban or something to block them or are they coming from a wide range of IP addresses?

Well done Ian.
This is the type of work that goes on unrecognised in the background that allows us to use a pretty good website.

Cheers

I have IP blocked and turned on admin approval for new accounts temporarily, hopefully calm things down for a bit :cry:
