Hi

How do you deal with spammers registering on your forum and going else where?

I remove the website address.

What about you?

Thanks

I remove the post/s and add them to the banned email list, which grows nearly every day.

I have been thinking of block banning more @domaims.com on mass, but that stop the genuine poster using the domains email account.

Hmm, well if you have a serious spam problem there might be some mods for the forum software to help you out. I use SMF, and I know of a mod that disables links for anyone with fewer than X posts, where X can be set to any number you desire.

I haven't had much of a problem with spam posts, haha and I hope that doesn't change. Ok, well maybe I hope it does change, because larger forums inevitably have at least a small problem with spam. 8) And of course I would like to see my forum grow....
