Website hit by spam attack

By - | Views: 4,300
Okay so today we got hit by a rather large spam attack I am currently dealing with.

I have banned most of the spammers but still going through the list and also added a much more powerful captcha (you now have to play a small game to register fun eh!).

Good job they only hit the news submission forum! Article taken from

I wish you luck with that. In my experience though, you will never be able to block them out forever though.

Well, that sucks. At least you didn't implement a CAPTCHA that requires you to input a very illegible sequence of letters every time you wish to post. I would be outta here otherwise! :p

Well it seems to have stopped new ones registering for now and i have banned all the ones that posted spam so far.

I'm extremely impressed along with your writing abilities and also with the layout on your wephorum. Is that this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway stay up the nice quality writing, it’s uncommon to see a nice wephorum like this one these days.. Great!
