Implemented a new registration scheme which has virtually stopped all spam on my other forums. Sorry it took so long to implement here, wanted to make sure it worked first.

Should definitely see an improvement and appreciate you guys being patient.

HI Ned - thanks very much - and my apologies if I've put you under pressure at busy time.

Hey Bunbury...
Ned has recently given me moderator status for many of the forum strings.
When they spam in MY areas this is what I do to them:

Trouble is, you're talking to a computer programme designed to make these posts automatically and endlessly across hundreds and maybe thousands of forums. It's not a sentient human being that can be insulted

So, when you have erection difficulties, you stare at Mick? Well, we all have our own way of dealing with life's little problems, thanks for sharing your way with us. That's really improved my morning...

Just to go briefly back on-message for the thread: Ned's spam filter is working. To see how effective it is, go to the members list and reverse the display order so that the most recent members are on page 1. There's been no spam since the filter went on.

If you then click back a few pages, you can see the very large number of bots that joined in before the filter was in place. The easy ones to to spot are ones with web sites.
