There's tons of them floating around at the moment. I must have gotten 6 or 7 in the last few days alone.

Just got two from LadyROOT. Can we close site registration for a while or something to kill off these spammers?

Same.

I don't think closing registration is gonna happen, as Rob doesn't appear to be alive.

Also, I don't think it's a good idea. Maybe a manual email registration system would be better. Thereagain, if Rob ain't here............

An ip ban would be enough. We dont need a CAPTCHA or to close registration to stop that jerk dry.gif

Omnbudsman should have that power if things are set up properly, too bad it's just bots being controlled by software that are damn well spamming the hell out of this site. You could ban every user name in the world and we would still get screwed over with spam no thanks to the spam advertisement programs out there.

There isn't even any point in blocking them from your PM list. Once the send you the first one, you'll never hear from them again.

There's nothing I can do. I can't modify anything. I don't know if you guys remember what ombudsmen can do, but it's not much. They can moderate any forum, edit members (signature, avatar, details), use the ip search feature (doesn't work very well), and create announcements, like the thought of the day. I just ignore the spam. I'll see if we can't get rob on the line.

I'm going to fix this and upgrade the software. I'm having a problem with the forum software company regarding my license. I am trying to resolve it now. Sorry for my absence. I will be back, doing many upgrade, and fixing problems. I also hope to make the website more accessible through mobile phones and other networking websites. Plus allowing easy embedding of music, videos, tabs, etc.

Sorry again for the delay, on a brighter note. I just got married. I'll invite you guys to a virtual version of my wedding when we have the more formal ceremony later this year of in 2011. This was just the civil ceremony...

Thanks, guitar.gif
