Over the past couple of weeks I've been catching spam here and there on the forum. Luckily, it's been at a manageable state so it's been easy to handle, but it is annoying to say the least. especially since it fills the userlist with a ton of members that never post. (or can't due to the IP bans in place). So some cleanup has been done to the board.
As of Today, anyone that had a post count of 0 has been deleted. If you ever posted on this board you should have no problem but if you registered and never posted, most likely you'll have to create a new account. I also have other options to handle spam volume, but as of today I don't really see a need to start using them. That will probably change over time however.
As for the spam, I'm just handling them as I see them. If I deem the post or user to be spam by content and an IP or email listing at http://www.stopforumspam.com/
, I delete the post, delete the account and ban the IP range. The spam I'm seeing tends to ask a question and then either posts a sig or has spam links involving console accessories in the body of the question. I would suggest not doing that if you want you're account to be active here.
