    Spam, and not the good canned variety

    So what's with all the spam lately?

    I noticed it getting worse after the additional key words where added to the search for this site. I know it is a lot of work but is there a way we can set it so people have to be approved to get in and post?

    I spend some time on some other sites as well but what makes this one stand apart from them all is this

    1) it is dedicated to Hawks and Hawks pretty much alone.

    2) Until latley there has been little to no spam

    At least they seem to be keeping it to the off topic section.

      Maybe the answer is to appoint one or more Spam moderators. Possibly one in the States and one in Europe to cover the different time zones. Granted prevention is better than cure.

          The additional works are the line under the hawk gt forum headline (... dedicated to the hawkgt/bros/rc31)

            That is not ALL additional.

            I added /Bros/RC31. I doubt that had an effect.

            We are working the issue, MrDude is working an IP thing and I keep hindering him by deleteing the bots (and apparently an occasional real person ).

            We are now on the same page and workign to resolve the issue.

            We thank you for your patience.

                Hey, I dunno how much it would help, but I've seen a "flag this topic" button on other boards. Registered users can click these to flag a topic as inappropriate, and perhaps alert mods to spam. Is it easy to add this feature here?
