False members

Postby rickf » January 7th, 2011, 3:23 pm

I was browsing around between freakin snowplowing, did I ever mention I hate snow, and I noticed in our member list that we have a bare minimum of ten pages of spam members! I know it really does not mean anything but when you eliminate the spammer from the forum shouldn't you delete the membership also? I mean, look at some of the websites on the membership pages 13 to 23. Most are porn sites.

You really need to go to first post approval. Really makes the forum better for the regular members. We will never see the spammers.

I run a site that uses the same software and G838, and I had trouble at first with spammers but then I had my consultant require the new member to answer a relevant question, like what is your favorite military vehicle ? The reply is sent to several moderators, any of whom can approve the membership or not depending on the reply. Spammers don't bother with the reply.
I have mentioned this to jim in the past.

At my site we use the same thing but also your first post must be approved. I just deleted a spammer and he was the first one that had posted in about six months. The people who visit my site never see the spam post because they aren't visible until approve. You should use the site reporting feature before you delete a post sothat moose knows who the spammer is.
