One way to stop spam here

Postby JamesInTheWorld » Sun Mar 14, 2010 5:27 pm

There is a membership script called Amember that works with phpbb – if you install it new users will have to use the sign-up form on Amember that is totally different than the phpbb sign-up form (also the sign-in form is totally different).

It also prevents password sharing so a spammer in one country cant give his sign-in info to a spammer in another country, you can also prevent the same account from being signed-in mutable times at the same time

So far this has stopped ALL of the spam on the forums I run and administer (excluding spammers with pulses)

Thanks for the tip.

The manual spammers from India and the Phillipines are impossible to stop but they tend not to "swarm" like the automated Russians and Chinese do.
