  • [Forum] Can't control spam vb4.1.1

    I'm getting hit with spam botnets daily from all over (turkey, latvia, russia, gemany, even usa [proxies im sure]) site is only a few weeks old and it's getting really annoying cleaning out all the spam and banning users daily. All of the solutions on are for previous versions and do not work on 4.1.1, what are current users supposed to do about this?

    Any suggestions? I have the askimet key entered and it flags most of it, I just hate having to actually cleanup the site daily, there should be better tools for this.
