Hey there!

It would appear that the current system of user activation no longer does the trick, as there have been massive amounts of spambots posting all sorts of stuff all over these forums... As an emergency measure, I have temporarily set each user registration to be manually activated.

I have also changed the registration code to the following:
Quote:
ZL7OAD5K


After you register, please drop me an email to "tim" at this domain, listing the username.
I don't want to put the full email here, as otherwise the spambots would add 1 and 1 and start spamming me.

I'll be getting enough spam from the registrations anyways -- got my first email before I even finished writing this topic.

I'll have to talk to RFlagg about this, and try and figure out how to resolve the problem.

For everyone trying to register, sorry for the inconvenience.

Edit: If you notice any spam that I seem to have missed, please let me know!

Tim,

Why not try a few of the things I did on my registration page. It worked very well. Only live people get in now.

My bad. I sent you a PM to explain a little better.

I have a message from user "AlexisSep" memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=2549
Containing an advert for "XRumer 7.7.35 Elite" mass spamming tool.

Please investigate this user.

*TIP*
The RSS feeds for this site are the best way to spot the spam as it arrives in the forum.
