    My site is 3 1/2 months old now, in the last week Ive had people sign on and enter a topic they talk about viagra and mortages or other items with lighter text for the links. I removed them and banned there IP address from the server. What is the best way of dealing with this..

      Don't delete their accounts, move them to the 'Banned' usergroup and reset their password with a jumble of letters and figures. Then thay cannot re register with similar details.

        it seems the spambot issues been getting realy bad as of late. On invision board I started a master list of wild cards but it was deleted by the admin there so I started a forum and placed the master list on that forum. A great deal of people have e-mailed me lists of their banned and I added them to the master list. its helped out a great deal of people by blocking a lot of spambots . the lists links posted below free to all to use. I have not had one spambot sense forming the Crusade and using the master list.
        if you have time hit me back with any spambots that are not already on the list so I may add them.
        Thank you for supporting the Crusade.
