Attempted Spammers Have Found Us.
« on: September 09, 2013, 09:32:32 AM »
I have been monitoring the member registrations the past couple of weeks and the number of "individuals" attempting to join and who are would be spammers have increased dramatically.  I just removed 29 attempts that attempted to join since last night.   

Now, we need some real folks to start joining.  Its way to easy to remove attempted spammers unlike what is said elsewhere.

WOW it doesn't seem to take any time at all for spammers to find sites.  It's too bad that IE has to spend time to remove them.  IE  :police: :police:   I thank you for your diligence.

It only takes a few seconds.  I don't ban individual IP's because that can ban others of good intent.  I just reject their request.

WOW!  Twice the money!  I will probably just spend it on AMC related goodies.
