Re: Plastic Classic Forum...

I am an admin on another sailing site, and we just got through waging war with an onslaught of spam-bots. I spent hours sorting the legit registered users from the bot accounts. The spammers keep finding ways past the counter-measures that are meant to stop them. At one point we resorted to manually approving members by e-mail but we were quickly swamped. Fortunately we had a techie beef up our security by adding screening questions that only a human could answer.

It sounds like the guys running that site were having the same problem keeping the riff-raff out!
