    Thumbs up Spam Stoppers Inc.

    Ok, we're getting tons of spam. Go to "Who's Online" and look for strange users registering and look for new users and check their posts.

    Also, it appears that these guys are still looking at our threads even after being banned. I think it may be some of the same groups coming back again and again.

    I think these are more than likely spam bots. They attempt to register and then post in random threads.

    We have anti spam plugins in place which filter out a lot of the spammers but obviousally we can't catch all of them.
    As soon as the moderators notice a spam account or it is flagged by another user, the account is banned permanently.

    If you find any spammers, please contact me rather than posting their details in this thread. I don't want their links being promoted in any way.

    Thanks for your help.
