I've been killing about 50-100 spam accounts a day. It seems to be catching everything.

Thanks CD. Yeah, Canucks should not be affected (or I have done something horribly wrong) ;)

Clash, yeah, right now, every accounts is waiting approval. Downside to this is that we may get someone who legitimately wants in but we accidentally delete them. With the router in place, I am hoping we will see a drop in spammers to very low. The tables are blocking Russia, some east block spam nations, Brazil and China. I tried to avoid Malaysia cause I though someone was from there.

So, stay vigilant and lets see if we get a drop off of spammers registering.

Thanks guys!

Any way you can block specific email servers? I think we could cut our spammer load in half with about five servers blocked...

Clash, you can ban email under user & group management. I just banned a few.

Also, I banned some more IP ranges manually bypassing the bayesian filter. Some are on the RIPE network so if we have European users, watch out for them. Is Catty in England?

So, let's see if that cuts back on the unwanted attention.

Yeah - Catty is a Brit. Hope he isn't affected!

I am trying changing back to the question on registration. So, now we ask what does D&D stand for?

I figure that is a pretty easy one. Let me know if you want it to be different.

I have had no new spammers to kill since late last night, Bill! Look like the question is working! :D

Seems promising. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
