Hello all,

Well since we seem to be getting a lot of spammers 9 out of 10 registrations now :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

I am considering closing the forum to "user registration", meaning no more signing up for an account. What I am thinking to do, to remove almost ANY POSSIBILITY of a SPAMMER getting allowed on the forum, is to have them email me directly, no registration page, just a direct email. This email will be responded to. The responce will ask specific questions that would pertain to FREESCO (and hopefully something that is not shown on the forums here) so that if the question( s ) are answered correctly I will create the account for them.

This is the only way I can think of to reduce my time in checking all of these (hundreds of) registrations that end up as SPAMMERS.

If anyone has any ideas that I may be able to use to take care of this I would be more than willing to listen.

If I can not find a better way, then the email idea will be put into action. I am getting sick and tired of the fukheads that have no respect for others and have no life besides being a god danm son of a bitsh. If you can not tell I am very very upset about this and am not going to take it much longer.

Hi,

Are the registrations done by bots? Isnt there a way to stop bots? I mean, isn't there a way to build in a random freesco question into the registration process?

Or are they real people? (I can only imagine very ill people do this :)

Hey uh - Howler..

You could try creating a new form section here called "Aardvark1"...

That is how the Admin in the puppy linux forums solved their little spam bot / spammer problems....

I think Dingetjes method should do ok against bots,
but what about those "F*ckheads" as Howler calls them (and I agree)...
It's not gonna stop a real person from creating an account and then adding spam.

Would it be an idea to combine both of the methods?
First people need to sign up using Dingetjes method,
then an e-mail will be send to an administrator (Howler) for a final check?

I know this will mean a lot of work for the admins, but it will defenately reduce the spam accounts beeing created.

just my 2 eurocents.

to Jason.
