  • [Forum] What to do with Known Sp*mmers

    It's been great until today.

    Human Verification Options -> Question & Answer Verification

    but today a registration of what appears to be a known Sp*ammer.
    Now what would you suggest I do? should I delete, block ip, global ignore ?...fun times.

    I am going to change my questions...first thing. Time for new questions.

      Increase the number of questions and answers you have, ban the spammer, install the above mentioned hack if you want and move on. Don't waste your time on this by trying to "have fun with the spammer" or you're going to hate being an admin.

        Just delete the spammer. I typically delete a few every day.

        I wouldn't worry about changing your Q&A, some will always get through as you're now dealing with humans. The Q&A is primarily designed to thwart automated scripts.
