Thumbs up THANKS!

Just wanted to throw that out there since it seems that the spam posts have subsided. Thanks to the mgmt for doing whatever was done to thwart those annoying posts!

OP is right. The spam seems to have died. I didn't even realize until I saw this thread and was reminded of how bad it was. So, allow me to echo OP.... A big thank you to whoever is responsible for taking care of it.

Very obvious that something was implemented, the spam no more filter must be working! Good shot.

Kes is the one who made it happen starting the end of last November - sucks that He has to deal with the extra work to keep the scumbags at bay...

It's not new really, just something I was hoping to not have to use.
Since Friday I have been manually checking the IP address and approving or deleting each new registration.

It's effective but it takes a little time and effort.
