Hey Mister i have added a mod that allows you to delete the user directly from the post, far right you will see a delete user button.

i am also going to delete from the database anyone that has not made a post as yet, the last couple weeks seems to be loads of users yet noone posted, definite spammers.

let me know if you see any problems since i added the mod.

cheers Baz

With the new system Baz put in place we're finally keeping most of the spammers out of here.
I'm currently deleting 30-40 applications to join up every day...Fuckers are so persistent.
Most of them have Russian email addresses >:(

I haven't got a clue to be honest Soren.
At least we are stopping them getting in and posting pages of spam now.

probably because we are on free forum software that doesn't get the support of paid software, i could try and move to PHPBB software but don't have the time to visit let alone anything else, i run another forum using PHPBB and don't get any spam attacks.

i will look into it asap.
thanks
