Might need to add something like reCAPTCHA to stop bots posting.
They have tried to address the problem but for some reason it hasn't worked and it's completely ruining the forum. I don't understand why it's so hard, captcha's might be useful or make it so that users who arn't registered can only make one post per day and they need to be checked before posting.
Cakewalk forums made regular users their moderators which was very effective.
Yeah, it's gone on for months now, since at least November Never seen this level of spam go on this long on an active forum! Surely by this point it's costing more to delete the spam than it would be to implement a fix...
Yeah, it went away for a while, but sometime in the last few months it started again and hasn't relented. Don't know if a protective measure was introduced that the spammers found a way around, or if nothing was done and the spammers just stopped for a while for some reason like their servers were down for a bit.
Going by my earlier post in this thread, this has been an issue for something like 14 months now!
