Re: SPAMBOTS - how can we stop them - read FIRST post.

I have a test board online with NO links to it other than that Google knows it exists.

How did Google...

Re: SPAMBOTS - how can we stop them - read FIRST post.

You could enable queued posts for the first post and activate the ones you're not sure about, let them post and review it before approval. That way if it is spam it won't appear on your board. Here are the lists from http://www.stopforumspam.com/spamdomainsandips as of yesterday in easy copy & paste...

Re: Spam Bots & phpBB3?

You could set account activation to "by user" (email) and "Enable queued posts" to yes for the first post. A lot of spammers don't enter valid email addresses, most of the recent ones on my board haven't been activated. If any do get activated you can check their first post before approving it so if...

Re: Spam Bots & phpBB3?

If you don't want to use a mod you can still use the lists from stopforumspam.com to ban by email and IP in the ACP. The lists are updated regularly though so new ones will be added and you will need to add them yourself in the ACP. I see their lists downloadable as CSVs. What method did you use to...
