Because of the serious amount of spammers trying to get in, we have now implemented a two step process for new registrants for our community.

1) You must reply to the confirmation email after registering.
2) Admin will then approve your registration before you can post.

Due of the high number of porn spammers using these free email domains, if your email is from the following domains, your registration WILL NOT be approved:

[email protected]
[email protected]

We apologize for this inconveniece, but we try and keep our community safe for all users and do not need pornography or other forms of un-solicitated spam.

I had the same issue with my Guzzi forum and killed the problem dead with a very simple solution.

Spammers look for registration pages by searching for the following string "forum/register.php" amongst others. They rarely enter by the front door so to speak.

All I did was password protect this one page using htaccess and placed the password & user name in red at the top of the forum for new members to read. Result, no spam signups in 3 months :clap:

Cheers!

Mike
