I read on the FA site that they had been hacked(No real surprise) and the e-mail addresses of the members "stolen". I got a few before I blocked them.

I recall the time when there was some talk about only having paying members be able to register on the forum, as it would prevent such spam.

Unfortunately I believe that would seriously deplete the number of people on the forum altogether. There are very few here now.

What about the kind of application that can only be approved when Ronald allows them to be on the site? I've seen those sites before.

The reason is because the google's ReCAPTCHA system got cracked recently.

So that human detection system, we're using has been cracked. It was cracked about 5 days ago. And the spam has been going up past few days.

I've disabled the automated signup process so if people want an account to post, they can email me about it.

I enabled that right now. Those who signup need to figure out how to email me and I'll approve them.

Awesome to hear. Hopefully now the place will feel less cluttered without those accounts posting so much spam.

Maybe Ronald should make a Spam Board. A board specifically for all the spammers to post on. Razz

If that happened, the whole forum would explode.

I'm probably horrible for saying this, but hackers and spam senders should be hanged! Its so unnecessary, and people that make a virus then sell the anitvirus soft ware, I say line them up and feed em lead.

Naw we can't do that, it ain't humane, lets put em in the pound.

Anybody who is guilty of spam or virus sending should be fined at the very least.
