SPAM posting on this forum

Post by Jelle Hieminga » Sat Jan 20, 2007 3:20 pm

Hello all,

Unfortunately this forum is regularly abused by SPAM bots to insert random posts with dodgy links, or just to register a fake user who happens to like strange medications and includes links to them for your convenience. I'm doing my best to keep them out and the latest change is in the registration process which now includes an extra step. Let's hope that this helps, but I'm afraid that in time this too will be broken.

Most of the spurious posting happens in the 'General Chatter' section so at least it should not intervene with serious VC10 related topics (now where did we leave those.... :wink: ).

All the best!

Jelle Hieminga.

Top move Jelle... I can;t imagine that anyone would look at those messages and think "yep, that looks like a good deal for a mortgage (or whatever))" :roll:
