Spam Bots Update
« on: March 02, 2022, 12:05:04 AM »
Hi everyone,


As many have noticed, Spam bots have found their way to our forums. I went through the forums deleted spam posts that I could find while bannind the users. I also removed many others that were pending for email activation just so we have a clean start. I also noticed that many of the spam-prevention measures on these forums were deactivated, probably from recent maintenance work. So I turned them back on. This should really help deal with future fake registrations.


For now, there are probably spam bots that have registered but haven't posted yet. If you see them, make sure to report the posts so that I can keep these forums clean of unwanted messaging.


Best,
TingThing
