Possible site spammers

Postby BraenDead on Fri Sep 06, 2013 10:16 am

All,

I currently have site user registration set so I have to approve/activate every new account to limit the number of spammers that can sign up. I will be travelling to Europe for 2 weeks and will not have access to do this. As I don't want to prevent new users from registering, I am going to turn off this capability while I am gone.

I don't expect there to be many spammers, if any, registering to the site. Most of them come from China and India and I have added IP Address range bans for many of the IP Addresses in those countries, and most IP addresses served by APNIC (no one from Asia Pacific would likely be registering for a regional form). However, if any spammers do sign up, I apologize and will deal with it when I get back from Europe. If you can please post any spammers user accounts on this thread, I would appreciate it.

Thanks!

Bob

Since it seems we haven't had any spammers, I'm going to leave the site registration configuration as is. Thanks!
