Re: I get so much spam and I don't know what to do...

Only way I have seen to beat the bots is to make new registrants answer a question. "What color is my yellow car?" I doubt too many spammers will take the time to write a bot to answer individual questions. Is that too much to ask for? I find it amazing it isn't being done. First site that does it w...

Re: I get so much spam and I don't know what to do...

I have had one human spammer in 5 years. Thousands of spam bots. Yes he did post a dozen or so before I could disable his account. I activated his acct. and luckily I noticed his arrival a minute later. I doubt one who cannot recognize the problem can solve the problem. I doubt many sites are modera...

Re: I get so much spam and I don't know what to do...

Make the ROC mod a part of the program. Too simple?
I guess those 50 emails a day from spammers were my imagination.

Re: I get so much spam and I don't know what to do...

mod preventing the posting of links for the first ten post would go a long way
First ten posts for a spammer is about a 30 second span. Are we thinking?

Mr. sobriety. Your kind don't deserve a response.

Re: I get so much spam and I don't know what to do...

You guys just don't get it. I don't want my email box flooded. I see nothing you have done to help. WE HAVE TO STOP THE BOTS. Human spammers can be detered as I mentioned above. They won't stay long if they have to wait 5 min. between posts.

Re: I get so much spam and I don't know what to do...

I removed my earlier post because it did not pertain to the question. VC is for bots and the question concerned humans. I will never rely on VC again.

Re: I get so much spam and I don't know what to do...

The ROC mod stopped my spam. Making admin activation did not prevent my email box to be useless with 50 spams a day. ROC did and now I will lose it if I upgrade to 3.0. I will not upgrade.

Re: I get so much spam and I don't know what to do...

They have a million ips and addresses. Look for the Flood interval. If they have to wait 5 min. between posts I bet they leave. Later after things calm down, change the interval to one min.

Re: [RC1] Registration Auth Code (RAC)

So this mod is obsolete since sooner or later we strongly should keep updated?

Does 3 address the problem with spammers?

Thanks

Re: [RC1] Registration Auth Code (RAC)

Sorry to butt in here, but it took me several efforts too. Keep at it , it is great when installed.

My question is, will php3.0 overwrite this mod? Took me a lot of trouble to install, I would hate to lose it.

Thanks

Re: [RC1] Registration Auth Code (RAC)

VC has been hacked long long ago. Why haven't mods been incorporated into the latest updates?

Final word

Re: [RC1] Registration Auth Code (RAC)

This is overly annoying. Sorry if we are not smart enough. But I would think the #1 problem would be incorporated into the program years ago. The spammers are light years ahead of phpBB. I will start spending time studying other software. Unfortunate thing for you guys is that one day you are #1 and...
