Blocking Robot Posts

Post by lemartini » Tue Oct 31, 2006 2:36 am

There is a robot going into my forum and posting;
it appears to get past the picture code that they
have to use for verification. How do I deal with
these spammers?


Here is my forum:

Is each forum, set to registered?
Or you have it set for everyone?
I had a problem where someone came onto my forums and posted a bunch of poker site posts. Found out, that my forums were all the way open so, guests can post.
So, I went in and changed each one to where you have to be registered to post.
If you don't see them in the member list, then that is probbaly how you have it set up to where guests can post.
