Spam

What the heck is up with the avalanche of spam we have been getting lately?

Is there anything we can do to decrease it?

This. I feel like half my time on CGR is deleting spam threads.

One of the issues we've been having with this particular set of spam is that they aren't IP centric, so doing IP bans aren't necessarily successful.

No. And from what I can find, there isn't an option to enable it. We need new software.

Every morning I come up here and mass delete spam posts. Like thesteve said, they're not always IP specific.

Cool. I was just wondering why it seemed all of a sudden like we had gotten a flood.

I wish we could, some day, improve the site so that it didn't happen.


Maybe.
