Fixing Spam


Hey Everyone,

We are well aware that there has been a growing problem with spam the last few weeks. We have installed a new filter and hope that this will kill the problem.

Because of the complexity of this site (premium, custom forums and comments), making these types of changes can have an odd impact across the site that we may have missed during testing…if you see anything, please let me know.

    The word "hero" is tossed around lightly, but no one will ever know how much time I've wasted manually finding and deleting spam comments and spammer accounts. I hope this works.

    Brad, thank you for passing along my suggestion to Tim :) he emailed me and seems so far to be working. Fingers crossed it continues to work well for the site!

    Paul & Brad, I feel you on spam. It's horrendous and tedious work sometimes to work them!
