lets check, basically i have to manually enable all the accounts at the moment and spambots are all from india and china (100% of the time thus far).

Problem is legitimate users have to sit there until activated

Okay, i've added geoip modules to the board. I'm going to watch a week of signups, and if it goes well I will disable admin authentication.

As a side affect, right now if you are from pakistan, china or india you'll likely get a very rude message if you click on the ucp. Please let me know via this thread if you get insulted for being a third world douchebag, I will add an exclude if you photo yourself skullfucking one of these spammer arseholes.

Strange, i didn't see any advertising, etc. :voodoo:
Nor do i see, the ip or email listed on the spam sites.

Maybe she's just one of those Scandinavian attention so-and-sos?


don't see any issues in the posts thus far.

Thinking about it, I wonder what their model is... maybe build a large amount of posts and then change them to be spam so with replies they are hard to delete?

Very odd.
