Spam update


Staff member
Hi all,

Just some housecleaning issues (no, it's not bed bugs :).

We have had a few spammer signing up to the forum in the last few weeks. They have not yet posted any posts, and I have been trying to de-activate accounts as soon as I find them. But since the new trend in forum spam seems to be PM spam (sending spam messages via Private Messages) I thought I would post this message.

If you receive a PM from someone that is obvious spam, please forward this PM to me and I will take care of it.

I hope this does not happen, and that we can stay spam free. But... :|

If we need to I will fumigate the forum!

Dear Ivar,
Many thanks for the advance warning. I appreciate this.
One day, I will understand why spammers spam. Until then, I will continue to hit "delete"
Kind regards

I have just changed the registration process in the forum to try and stop theses spammers to register.

I have taken away the CAPTCHA (where it asks you to type in letters and numbers that you see in an image).

...and added a questions that I can create/edit that would (hopefully) separate the robots from humans. Questions like "What color is grass?" and so on.

Please contact me at ivar at pilgriamge-to-santiago. com if you have any problems/questions regarding this.

Un saludos,
