Ladies and Gents,

If we get a spammer. Please report the posts with (http://www.twowheelmichigan.com/report.php?p=26942)"triangle with explication point" symbol.

This will send an email to the admin/mod team so we can get rid of their posts and ban the user.

I just did a few. :werd:

Help me nab these :squid: so I can :flush: and they can :plzdie:

Just an idea I have seen on other forums: Some forums make new users wait 24 hours after joining before they are allowed to make any posts. I would imagine this is to cut down on the amount of people that join just to spam the forums.

Problem with that Remo is that I don't want to deter people from signing up and using the forum. We aren't big enough to take that risk and alienate good people. So I just have to put in the clicks and poop can these morons.

Gents remember....

The Triangle with the ! in it. Use it.

I do my best to stop the russia/pakistan/ukraine/china IP's from coming on here... I try to ban people with spam in the signature before they even post.

But some will slip by.

Further, with the url re-direct thing fixed I bet their attacks to increase.

Thanks for keeping your eye open for me.

Whatever you do, make sure your admin passwords arent blank or common. I'm sure they're not, but just in case. ;)

What a lot of them do is register and wait. Some register and spam, but I notice some that register and don't post for a while. It's weird. But either way, I love that thing.
