Well 10 bots a day vs. none now?

I'd say thats worth it, also if ya know the name you can find it on the first page of google.


Lets keep the personal jabs off the forums? (Just a thought)

Where are these 10 bots a day?

I see one post report every few weeks, if that.

Please always report any spam posts as soon as see one. :smt023

No no no, I was talking about my friends forum.

We had it running and like a month or two later (Thanks to Google) we were getting insane numbers of spambots a day.
This turned out to be some issue with our original capthca. When we got a new one off the phpbb site we have not seen one since :D


Imo I agree, the spam bot "issue" here is pretty standard if ya think about it.
(Could be a whole lot worse)

Our custom captcha is quite good. Before zombie implemented it we were getting tonnes of shit. For a forum this size I barely ever have to remove a spam post.

There have been quite a few recently, but I suppose we can't stop them all.

Okay, well if you see any more report it and we can make sure it gets removed asap.

Cheers.
