Anti Spam

Postby Fishh2o » Fri Oct 27, 2017 9:40 am

Well this new plugin I have been using seems to be working. I didn't realize how many attacks we were getting in a day. Not only the registrations but other scans and stuff. Last week we had 800 different spam bots try to register. Hal and I had been reviewing each new user and sometimes I had 30 accounts to review a day. Last week they must have been busy. Some of the accounts were allowed to register but they were moved to a blacklist so no posting.. However, if something were to happen to that list they could post again.. So I baked all China, Ukraine, Russia, and Brazil registrations. So, since that we had a grand total of 4 users get approved for an account.


Roll with it. If you stay above 55 the wheel wont fall off.

I figured you would :-) still trying to get some more filters set up and flat out ban on .ru domains.
