SPAMMERS - forced new registration

Postby jamesfc on Tue Apr 21, 2009 1:45 pm

Unfortunately, the Internet like other public forums, is filled with those who eventually spoil it for everyone. I have had to enforce a policy for new users to validate themselves due to spamming violations - viagra, computer website, etc. If this doesn't work, I will be forced to require administrative validation of all new users and possibly, postings. This is the only way I can think of to keep the board on-topic and to protect everyone's privacy.

Update - 6/7/09 - Since I am now spending way too much time deleting spam postings, I've established a new policy that anyone registering by the board will have the first postings added to a queue for admin approval. Once you have posted a legitimate approved message, your posting will not longer be administered.

Thanks for understanding!!
