Post Stop the spam?
If this forum has any anti-spam settings (ie. answer a question in order to post), you may want to turn them on before it becomes so inundated with spam that people stop participating.

Thanks for the recommendation. I have turned on email confirmation for new accounts, and upped the settings for the difficulty of the captchas, which should help a bit.

I just want to say thanks to everyone who has been reporting spam using the built in tool to make it easier to stay on top of. I will do my best to keep the spam on this board to a minimum.

ethan,

one problem may be that guests can post. I do not have an account at all but the system lets me post and type in my user name. I personally would prefer to get a log in, kill the guest account and get rid of the captua.

I didn't want to have to do that, but it doesn't seem to be working well as is, so I just made the change requiring people to be logged in to post.
