New spam methods in place...

We've put some new spam methods in place. Quite annoying to get 15+ registrations and 10+ spam posts each day but I hope we can now get rid of them once and for all.

It looks like it doesn't fully work yet...

Thanks.

Actually the system works perfectly - the last few spams are from "users" who've registered a looong time ago. I haven't yet managed to purge the user list properly (got it down from 2400 users to 1000 though). Once I get through the rest of them, no spammers (or very few at least) should be able to post (or register, to be more precise).

Good times... :)

Yeah it will be a lot better without all those spam bots.
