Title: Recent bot spamming
Post by: pyro on December 24, 2014, 04:40 PM
We've encountered a certain number of bots spamming our forums and are forced to take extreme precautions as to blocking ip addresses from the site and adding heavy security to the registration page.

12/25/14: Now you have to be accepted to have an account on the forums. All I will do is check your name and your ip and you will be good.

1/6/15 (way overdue): Now you have to not only do a captcha but go to your email and do click an activation link or whatever you do to activate it. It stops bots apparently.
