Blocking Spam ( 08:22:45 MonAug 14 2006 )

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.

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

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:
