Influx of spammers and pornographers

We have been experiencing another influx of people registering for the sole purpose of posting links to whatever sites they advertise and or pornograhy posters that just wont leave us alone. If you are one of these people I am talking about you are not welcome here. Nobody wants you or your illisset web sites.
For our legitamate members, please be patient while we figure out how to weed these flakes out. They have to be registering in person to get past our security. WES

Thanks for the update Wes. I'm not sure what the answer is except to dump th em and block them.

Maybe one of the techie types has an answer.

Well I guess that didn't work!! The "A" Hole spammers are still there!! Well untill I can keep them from registering, all new members will have to be cleared through me. I didn't want to do that, but I have no choice for now. WES

Im logging in every time I walk past the computer lately.

Ill be in California from Saturday afternoon to Wednesday night. I will be spending time with the 2 grand daughters. I will check in daily while Im gone.



Ive noticed that with every new member, If there is NO profile or email address, most likely they are a spammer. Most of the time, they hit us with one spam and never come back.

Very important to all new members... PLEASE fill out your profile. It will help other members to know who you are and what make and year truck you have!

Thanks

Those characters seem to make the rounds of the forums. A couple of the sailing sites I participate on got hit pretty hard for a while.

Way to go Wes. I've made it a point to log in everytime I walk past my computer lately, just to see who is "New". The real giveaway is no truck info or email address in the profile. Yes, we can beat this spam thing yet, if everyone keeps on their toes
