    Goldie is the problem that this forum allows an automatic membership? If mods were allowed to see membership requests before they hit the board would that change things?

    why yes, yes it would...

    Well there's the solution maybe. How many legit member requests does the forum receive vs. the amount of spammers?
  • GoldenladleGoldenladle Super Moderator Posts: 3,874 Senior Member
    I can't answer that, because I don't know.

    How would you know if someone is legit if they haven't posted anything yet/
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    That's my question. For previous spammers, I guess the IP address is a clue.

    The name is usually a clue as well. It seems to always be randomly generated letters.

    Would requiring them to check an e-mail sent by the Forum to them like other forums do work? you know you have to authenticate some gibberish letters back and then your are let in?

    We can sit here and come up with all sorts of ideas about how to rid the world of spammers but it comes down to the powers that be responding to our requests, which for the most part they do just not this (yet)

    I'm confident they see it, but they're busy.





    How's that for kissing booty? :D

    Yeah but when you look at IP are you seeing my external IP or that of my provider.
