    Re: Well it's official!!

    Back in the Rifle-Company days, I tracked down the IP address of scammy fake registrants and banned their IP's. Over time I collected a large list of these on a spread sheet and could identify large ranges of international IP's that I could ban by the sweeping boatload. I figured if it weren't North American it didn't have a lot of reason to be there, with a few exceptions.

    That worked pretty well for a time until we went with another system involving having registration time open for only a couple of hours per day. That cut the problem down significantly. Van might remember another feature of that system I forgot.

    Another item that helped was disallowing any user registering from a gmail account. Gmail is ripe with scum.

    ... disallowing any user registering from a gmail account.

    I think you should check your records and see how many members have gmail accounts. I do.

    Re: Well it's official!!

    I have one as well.

    It's not that hard to ban each as they come in. They are banned and never see the light of day. They just haven't caught on that I can get them before they can see the forum once registered.

    Re: Well it's official!!

    After midnight today any extra kits I have will be sold through our X-Change. At times, I will have other parts etc for sale in the X-Change.

    If you don't see any kits listed in the X-Change, feel free to ask about availability either here or via PM.

    I'm out of switches and connector arms and won't be getting anymore.

    Re: Well it's official!!

    Banned as well as IP. There will be times when a spammer may get through as it's not an exact science, but, If I don't catch em, I know and trust that the staff or membership will. Then they get zapped.

    Since installing one more piece of anti-spam, There have been 6 attempts with only one making it through. I can't elaborate as to how I manage to catch most of them but, let's just say that I have my ways.....LOL
