Do we have a new spammer? It would be bootime hitting the different threads this time.
Yes we do.
Is it possible to set up a board that unregistered users can post in? If so, the bots will see thy don't need to register and post there. Making it easier on you to get rid of them. Also if possible make it so that it's the only one you see until you log in. Just a thought as it worked on a different forum I was on.
Actually, because of the issue, this got bumped up in priority in development, and I now have a tool to delete all posts by a user, in addition to the ban button I had, so I'm really happy about that, and it sholdn't be a problem in the future. I mean I'm sure we'll have spammers, but they can be deleted and the Board restored in just a few minutes.
As an aside, this is why I don't offer timelines that people want as to when certain features will be implemented on the forums. When something like this comes up, priorities have to be shifted. :)
