Speaking of spam, I just deleted about 20 posts this morning. Then i also noticed my e=mail server isn't filting things out just right. Ohhh I put email bans on certain accounts that I closed, and every time I test sending JUNK to these accounts the mails do in effect become blocked. But for some reason... when spammers send mail to the same accounts, it gets through.

Scratching my head here at a loss for what exploit they are using in that department now.

If I can't get phpBB's spam problem under control, hopefully I can at least solve my e-mail issue.

Hello Ady-baby,
thanks a lot for having sumarized most of the anti-bot patches.

I also added the fact to no longer list the banned users:

of course, thanks also flies out to the brave patches authors...

hopefully this will make me survive until the 3.0 release.
also I hope the 3.0 will take most of those modifications into account by default. can someone confirm that?

Thanks,
john.

I tried the previous post by adding the code to two of my pages. It changed nothing. I still get 10-12 spam users added each day. I made the board require my authorization, but that's not a solution. I am not very good with programming code, so I need help. Please let me know if there is another solution. Thanks.

Another note on this topic. When I added the code that was listed on page one of this issue, it had added more spam than ever. I am currently getting over 25 spam additions each day. Someone please help!!!!
