  • Increase spam /forum or subdomain?

    To those who are getting hit hard with spam.
    Is your forum in it's own directory?

    www.mywebsite.com/forum or in a subdomain, forum.mywebsite.com
    The reason I ask, I have two boards. One gets no spam and the other is getting hammered.

    It should make zero difference. One is probably coincidently in some spammer's index where the other isn't.

      It's happening in 2 of my forums. One VB, one from a competitor.
