  • Spammers n Spam

    Hi,

    I am facing this horrifyng problem on my vBulletin 6.7.0 forum.

    A lot of new users are being registered with wiered usernames and with a gmail id and posting spams and pornography.

    My forums are educational and these kind of spams are hurting bad.

    Only email confirmed members can post on the forums still it is happening.

    What can be done ? Please help !

    I have the exact same problem for the last two or three days. All from gmail. Some are nonsense posts some are porn. We are also an educational forum and it's becoming a huge problem.

        Get the NoSPAM! Mod from vBulletin.org and setup ReCaptcha and Image Verification. Great choices to help prevent spambot attacks.

          Yeah we too are facing this from last few days. Its very tough to keep a watch on the forums all the time and since we have more than 100 users online all the time, the porn n spam gets a lot of views and is defaming our forum..
