Has anyone else noticed our beloved forum has become a dumping ground for Spammers? I keep reporting them but they keep coming.

To be honest, I haven't been logging on as frequenly lately so I haven't noticed. Glad the mods are on top of it, though.

For whatever reason, our countermeasures must have been posted to one of the spam lists. We've had a ton of spam registrations, even more than the posts would indicate.

For now automatic registration is disabled. If anyone needs to register to the board, I can put them in manually. If the deluge of spammers subsides we may be able to turn it back on but for now it's just too much to keep up with.
