    Hi there - there is an annoying amout of spam entering the community and there needs to be some form of block for this. The funny thing is that the spammers are obviously not aware of how funny their posts are. Anyway:

    Should members be approved before granting access?

    Can we build an automatic job to clean up posts with certain entries?

    Please discuss and act.

    Hi,

    I would prefer that you take appropriate actions to reduce these kind of posts. I have no use of reading about DVD ripping J One of the major issues with this is that real posts are missed due to the amount of spam. Members should be approved. As far as I can see there are variants of the same member names that posts this nonsense.

    When I see inappropriate content in posts I report it. I encourage other members to do so as well.

    Hi.

    To reduce the amount of spam we have added a Captcha verification before posting to the forum. Hopefully this will reduce the amount of spam

    It is not reducing the amount of spam. Please create a member/email block function instead.

    Or have an automatic delete job for anything reported as spam.

    Hi,

    I agree with Vyv.

    The amount of spam has not been reduced. The the captcha is only making it harder for the users...

    Regards,
