Unfortunately I can't think of anything you can use to block ad names. I will see if BbBoy can think of something when I speak with him tomorrow. :smile:

But for now it's fight them as they join, and it's worse if you have guest posting enabled like we have here in Tech Support just in case someone is having log in trouble or something they can post here as a guest. Do you have guest posting enabled anywhere? Also you can use the username-search the log and put that in the username input and see what IP# comes up. Report it here too and we'll ban it netowrk wide in the morning. :smile:

72.3.137.82 was the IP number we globally banned for that advertising member dstore11. They will no longer be able to advertise using that IP#, so this may or may not have the desired effect. Many of these spammers have rotating IP#'s so it's hard to keep up with banning them. I found the IP# by looking in the Full Log inputting that username into the username input section. BbBoy banned it so it won't be back, plus I am locking that name for spamming so it won't be back either. If you need anything else just let us know colyork. :smile:
