Why do you not accept new members by hand? just accept thier mail and then u see if its a spamer. Like sending him a message to anser some questions by mail? So u get rid of these spaming bots. They r so anoying! i hate it! pls talk to the admins ? ;)

I have made suggestions to Malc but mostly they haven't been accepted. I'm just a moderator so I can't change board settings, only the owner can do that.
So I do my best, but it depends on when you log on whether you see new spam before I get to it. I usually delete overnight spam before 9am and I check typically several times throughout the day.

Cheers

it's free advertising, and the increasing user count is worth it. Any forum looks busier with spammers, the trick is to automatically stop them from posting. lol.
