Blocking Spam
We have had our boards for a few years now and hav never had this problem until now and I can't figure out how to stop it. Please help....

For the last few weeks, we have been getting one of our threads just FILLED with spam. I have tried blocking the usernames, the Ip addresses and even IP ranges but nothing seems to help. Is there anything I can do to stop getting all this spam on my boards?

I have 2 threads that can be read by everyone, but only the Guest book thread is being spammed.

Re: Blocking Spam
You could set up your guest forum to only allow guest to read it but they must register to post in it.

Re: Blocking Spam
That is the best advice we can offer on this Enchantress. If you can give us the IP#'s and link to a thread you created in a trash forum I will see about having BbBoy banning the IP#'s from the network itself. This is the only think we can do, so you might consider making it guest viewing only as chickenlady suggested. :smile:
