OK, so, I deleted another 50 users today.

Why? Because they DO NOT POST, and, mainly, they're hocking viagra, and whatnot, in thier website field on their profile.

FROM NOW ON, THE FOLLOWING APPLIES:

You may not have a website, in your profile, until you hit 5 posts.
If you do, make sure it doesen't contain anything about drugs, or 'discount'.
Make sure it isn't in the SuRBL.

I just finished modding phpbb to enforce these for me. Violating any of the above, will result in an instant ban, by the system, and I will NOT reverse it for you.

Consider this the only warning.....

Man, do I hate spammers... I kinda figured the Captcha woulda kept them out....

Also, I've made some other changes.

The memberlist, will no longer show up to guests, or search engines.

That means, EVEN IF YOU GET SPAM THROUGH, IN YOUR PROFILE, IT WILL BE POINTLESS.

Oh, and, websites in profiles, won't show up, at all, to search engines.

Honestly, I like having the feature. Sadly, stupid people abuse it.

To date, I've deleted 692 spambots...

Dude, I think you need some moderators to delete these spammers before they get like they do.

Indeed, I've been out for the last 2 days, taking care of my youngest in the hospital (noting terribly serious, just a minor surgery)

Consider yourself promoted :P

Ah... so, if you put a website in your profile before you reach 5 posts, you're banned? That would probably be why I was banned as soon as I registered....

Are you confirming or asking.

I'm not sure if thats the case brjedi26, kind of new at this moderating thing. Also, I don't have privileges to set that kind of banning.

That might be it... We were using a commercial anti-spam product, and, they closed down a short while ago. It's been acting funky ever since, I'm going to clean it out shortly. Also, it kept re-applying your ban, I had to show it what's what.
