  • any suggestions on preventing spammers

    our site has been over run with spammers the past few days.. they validate the image and post their porn or drug spam on the site..

    I block their IP blocks, make them special users and move their crap posts off ofd the forum

    is there any suggestions on how to prevent this?

    most seem to come from the netherlands, but have different IP blocks.. so i am blocking all that i can..

    Id prefer not to 'moderate new users' just cuz i hate to punish good new members by blocking their posts just cuz of the spammers...

    anybody have any creative suggestions??

    Run vBulletin 3.6.0
    Turn on Captcha image verification.
    Require day of birth during registration and ask a custom profile field question.

    THese things make auto registration harder.
