Default Spam

You guys need to do something to get rid of the spam showing up on the forum. For the forums that I have set up in the past, it was super easy to do. Just make it so when people register, they have to enter some word (like bazooka or bass) in a field. You can even say something like this: Please enter the word "bazooka" in this blank box. The spam bot won't know to fill in that field, and so the registration for the forum will fail, and it will move on.

Default Re: Spam

actually, we have a ReCaptcha word picture that does that. Most of the spam we are getting now are individuals that log in and create an account. We usually stay on top of it and catch them, but both GeneH and I have been unavailable the last few days.

Default Re: Spam

The word pictures don't really stop spam anymore. Most of the bots are designed to try codes in those fields, or can decipher the image. I'm telling you, a custom field with a custom word will stop all the spam!
