I tell ya, people have no respect for nothing any more these days, Geeze! Turn on anonymous posting so that people don't have to go through the trouble of creating an account just to post a reaction and what do you get?

Idiotic crappy forum spammers who think they are cute by searching for the username input field on the posting form and entering advertising messages. Rolling Eyes

Do we really have to go through the trouble of programming a deterent against such lame attacks. Martin, I temporarily turned off anonymous posting because I found 10 of the messages above spread through out your forums.

Lordy Lordy. Puzzled

Kim,

I just added a little sentence in the homepage text about people having to register and why. I'll just leave it set to "registered" since forum spam is not going to go away. Too bad.
It's not going to take long until they get past the registered thing too.
