Topic: Spammers

The spam is starting to get really annoying.  I've been reporting some but it's really a full time job to stay on top of these morons.

Is there not anything we can do to improve the situation?

Thanks.

Re: Spammers

Short of banning all of China and Eastern Europe, I'm at a loss of what to do that might help. hmm

But I agree, it is very, very annoying and time consuming to deal with.

Re: Spammers

What about a captcha system until you get X number of posts and ratings from your peers?

So if you have < 100 posts and your rankings from other members (that are over 100-200 posts) is negative then you must have captcha for every post?

Of course, all captchas have been broken but this might help some.
