    Howdy guys, I have left this place on auto mode and did my best to block new members just to stop the advertising and scam bots. I let a few bad seeds ruin it for me for a while. Right now I can’t remember and do not have the time to update everything here, I am going to have my website guy look at it and try to open the place back up. I’ll be more active myself I hope.

    Well I shut down new users to stop the spammers, there are a little over 4,000 new members waiting for approval.

    And thank you!

    I've been deleting (on average) 4 Russian or Asian spammers per day the whole time. So, it's not exactly just been auto-pilot. LOL I notice that the site is not "secure" (https). I wonder if that is part of the issue?

    They appear to have been capable of registering through a back door and we not appearing in the "registered members" as new.

    The ones who DID use the front door were a little easier to catch. The others, I just had to get lucky to find them online.

    That’s a lot of spammers. It’s crazy how they take over everything

    They're definitely using a back door access... I've booted half a dozen Russians since this thread was begun.

    I can’t believe they try to get into every forum there is. I guess the more you try the more luck you will have

    Please keep me up to speed on the progress. I'm still pink misting a dozen a day (minimum).

    It would also be helpful to have a tool added which would enable us to ban a domain name, not just individual accounts associated with a domain. I'm seeing a dozen/day from two Russian domains.
