Thanks. And I might have to. This is getting really discouraging to keep the site going. Every single morning, more accounts, more spam. I don't know why. We are not that high traffic of a site to start with.


Edit, and I also go to delete them from Facebook and Twitter also because I don't have enough things to do. I'm not even sure it's worth it anymore.

I'm disabling registration for new members. Screw it, I'm done doing this. I'll have to think of a better way to stop the spam, but deleting it everyday, I am done.

Could you be talking about Me???? Here is my original quote from my facebook post. "PackersHome mods,could we get these spammers blocked please." I wouldn't call it whining,more like espressing concern.It just pisses me off that that some people have nothing better to do than waste the mods valuable time with such worthless B.S. that no one in there right mind would interested in. Trust me,you wouldn't want me trying to do any computer work for the site. My computer skills leave a lot to be desired.

SCC,

there was suppose to be a smilie face wink after that comment. I was in a hurry to get to the hospital and be with my wife.

Sorry I didn't mean any offense. I actually had changed how I phrased the post and still didn't get it the way I intended.

Have New Members have to answer a trivia question before being allowed to post?

Something like, who was the best Packers QB ever? :-"

Sorry about the spam. Believe me, I try my best to make sure none of you see it. This last attack was quite ruthless. I think it was eight users registered to spam over night. Typically it's between 2 - 4 and one or two posts each.

New registrations are disabled until a satisfactory resolution can be discovered and implemented.




Edit, yes captcha is used and requires I believe 9 digits. A question/answer is not in the software. I am going to see about creating a tool to do just that. The problem though is these are human's, not bots that are doing this. Why are they choosing a Packers fan site for kitchen stuff? No clue.
