This is for Ron and anyone else who runs a forum:

I recently suffered an increase in spam registrations on my own forum and while dealing with them I discovered the Stop Forum Spam site... personally I find it useful for checking whether an email address is from a known spammer and/or whether the IP address they register from is worth banning in its own right! Since I started using it, the number of spam registrations that had gone from 1-2 per month up to 10-20 per day is back at the 1-2 per month level!

Anyway, whether you are affected by spammers just now or not, this is definitely a resource that is worth checking out... after all, the more you can do to prevent them the better it is for you and your forum! Cool


Islay... the gateway to JURA!

Hi Bruce, this is a useful website. Every now and then I get strange registrations although not as much as I used to have when I used the other forum software. At least now I can check before sending out an email asking if their registration is genuine. Big Grin
