Spammer problem

Postby grey » Thu Nov 30, 2006 12:58 pm

I've added a new mod that's pretty simple and will hopefully bring down the amount of spam that we've been seeing.
It will definately stop spam bots. However it will not stop actual humans from registering if they want to actually take the time to search for the registration code.

I hope that this helps some. I'm tired of the spammers.

Looks like the spammer problem has been taken care of.
Except for Ralph, The Godfather of DnD in Miami, spamming the calendar everything is ok. :wink:
