Exclamation spam problem

Would it be possible for some moderators to help deal with the growing spam problem on this forum?

There is a groundswell building: http://mazda3revolution.com/forums/2...-all-spam.html

If there are indeed any moderators at all here, they should be canned and replaced immediately. This forum is rapidly being choked to death by the constant spam postings.

In addition, there a 3 supermods listed in the contacts section, none have been around or posting since June.

On it now and have a ticket in to clean up spam.

We will have more controls dropped on the site.

The clean up is on going. The protections that Jeff mentioned include blocking the posting of links for new users, preventing edits for the same users, and scanning for rapid cross posting and other bot net behaviours. If this does not reduce what comes through we will resort to new member bottle necking. All new members will have to be approved in a welcome area.

Thank you
