Spam Bot

As many of you have seen a SpamBot got thru the reg process. Many of you wonder why it takes a bit to get approved to the AntsCanada Forums? Well that's because I have to look at each and every person that applies to the forums! Yes I look at the name, the IP, the place they state there are from and where their IP says they are from and so forth. 15 out of 20 people that applied are false accounts or spambot accounts trying to be set up.

I have tried blocking certain IP ranges but with that it sometimes nails real people so that had to be removed as a block, so now I have to look at every person that applies and that can take a little bit beings this forum can get 15-40 applications a day. I do all this so it keeps the spammers out but on occasion one may slip by. If this happens report it and when I get home from work I always check my messages and will get that account deleted and also all the postings that were made by that account.

With your help we'll keep the forums clean!
