Hello ITD. In case you were not aware, we have had a HUGE problem with spammers, since about october. We are nt sure why they have targeted us. But we do know that lately they have hit us in huge loads. So the staff here at ITD has more or less decided to try jsut banning the spammers and not deleting them, due to the fact that after they are deleted they rejoin again with the same username. So we have decided to wait awhile and then delete them, hoping that maybe they will not register again. I want to inform you of this so that you can be aware that we do not condem all the wacked out and disgusting usernames. Hopefully they will stop bombarding us here soon.

Miss Hathaway and the ITD Staff :ok:

again, we are sorry for the awfull appearance these evil spammers leave on the front page. some of their usernames are way over the line, and we have no control over them untill tommy can install the new v-bulletin program. we get between 50 and 100 spammers per day and our staff members are working overtime keeping them cleared out the best they can.

thanks again itd staffers for all you do to keep things going :ok:

Have you tried banning by IP address instead of just username? It's a whole lot harder for them to get a new IP addy from their service provider then it is for them to come up with a new username.

yes, but some of the ip's must have been close enough to some of the legit users that some legit users were denied access. tommy therefore unbanned the ip's so as not to risk anyone being locked out. also they are persistant enough to aquire different ip addys. and they aquire a buttload of different email addys too.

there is a solution with the v-bulletin 3.8...... just waiting for tommy to install it. :ok:
