VIP / Anti-spam Question

Post by richard » Fri Nov 02, 2012 2:29 pm

The few spam postings we've had recently are a fraction of the attempted signups that were reaching the activation stage. I have also been deleting activated accounts before they post spam (a new tactic seems to be to register dozens of accounts before their domain is banned, and then to use them for posting over the next month or so).

I've just changed the registration VIP / anti-spam question. I have also reduced the number of allowed attempts from 5 to 4.
