The bots have moved from funny jokes, to annoying ads and now pornographic sh*t.

Either change the name of the general forum or make registration more secure.

Thanks, It's a problem no doubt. what do you suggest we rename it to?

Besides, don't you think any added sec will turn away legitimate user from registring? is it with the trade-off?

there are forums like this which when you register, you have to type in some jumbled up letters which bots cant get through.

So maybe have that as an option when resgistering?

I know that there are some extra smart bots that maybe able to get through but youll eliminate most of them.

But we have the jumbled letters and they still come. I don't think these are automated registrations but people who do that as a job...


Maybe impose a waiting period before a new registrant is allowed to post. But that is drastic and not sure if effective.

I dont think there is someone in a little room in russia sitting down making up usernames and posting pornolinks on the jieh website where only a handfull of people visit.

There are bigger forums out there than for someone to be wasting their time posting stuff here.

I guess you guys have to be more vigilant. expecially now with the stuff they are posting.

Once again, I consider myself the robot removal moderator, The "General" section of the forum is not the only one where pornographic or other related content has been posted.

I have repeatedly deleted posts from all around the forum in almost every topic now, even within a few minutes of them posting it.

It only just happens to be that they are posting in the general section..

Maybe it has something to do with the word "general".. I think the "general" Aoun is up to something on this forum...

My only idea is to be able to view the email address when someone tries to join up so that it can be traced...
