Spam Update, New Users Please Re-Register

Postby nathan » Tue Jun 16, 2009 7:00 pm

Hi Everyone,

We've implemented a new spam strategy utilizing custom profile fields at registration time...basically, you now must answer that you are indeed human, and then solve a simple math equation in order to complete and activate a new account.

In the past week, we've had about 450 registrations, 99.9% of which were almost certainly spam. If you are a legitimate user and your account wasn't activated in the past week, it's possible I thought you were a spambot...so please re-register! I'm very sorry for the inconvenience, but (fingers crossed) we should have some more control over the spammers now.

Keep posting,
Nathan

Thank you everyone who is a new user and for everyone who posts so frequently. This website is a great resource because of all of you who know so much more than people like me. Anyway, the spam is apparently way down, if not completely taken down!! So, big ups respect everyone and thanks for reporting spam as well! Wicked for real big ups respect to everyone who helps out.
