 Thengel is now a mod

Thanks!
Thengel

Well, FYI, the spammers are still coming at us. I am corralling and deleting but I am thinking we need to look at better anti-spam strategies. I thought the captcha would be more effective than it is.

Ideas? Besides lopping my head off. ;)

Block all incoming traffic from countries such as Russia, China, Korea, Lithuania, who have zero legit user presence but constitute a high # of spammers.

Make use of stopforumspam and botScout which have apis to preflight new users against their databases.

Consider requiring all new users to be manually approved.

I have been considering these. Sigh. It will mean a bit of a performance hit but you gotta do what you gotta do. :doh:

Thanks Ewilen.

I have put RPGHaven on the old spam denying router. Let's see if this helps. Downside, someof our foreign patrons may have problems. Please let us know if there is an issue (those who can still log in).

Thanks.

BTW- I wonder if this has anything to do with the EnWorld hack last month?
