post links to the new deadpool movie, then if you are retarded enough to click the link your pc gets infected with spambots/viruses etc.

all of the new users on 1st march were russian/ukranian spam IP's :smt015

I don't know what's happened but the spam bot has gone crazy!!!

Admin/moderates can anything be done to stop this? Especially the ones about those bloody essays

Thanks for maintaining the forum guys, good luck in the Spam Wars

on the bright side, with all the "guests" aka spammers we have a new daily record of 196 users per day - granted 188 were "guests" but still :excited

right from now I have 171 users awaiting activation, I have installed a mod that checks all users, registrations and posts with the world spam database and blocks them if they are on there.

hopefully genuine users can still post lol

I will do when I get home tonight, but if they try and post now their id and posts will be checked and blocked, fingers crossed this should stop NOW!
