More Spammers?

Post by RTADash » Sat Sep 15, 2007 3:21 am

Holger, the most recent two members look like spammers, could you look into this? They must've registered manually, because of the picture confirmation. :?:

Thanks for paying attention here! Yes, these two were (apparently manual registered) spam users -- they have been deleted now!

That sexo one is back again. Must be a persistent idiot :twisted: . Is it possible to block certain email addresses from registering?

Yes, it is possible, but they may not use the same e-mail address each time. That wouldn't be smart of them.

Deleted again. Let's see when he's back! Then I will delete him again. And so on. (Not that I would have anything better to do...) ;-)

(Deleted.) It would be interesting to know it this spammer uses a technique to circumvent the visual confirmation system, or if this is just a poor, manual spammer...

Maybe there's someway to hack into the code of the visual confirmation to determine the correct answer...just a wild guess. :?

Well, that's the idea about a visual confirmation: To determine if the client is a bot or a real person
