    I think ReCaptcha has been compromised. Need to switch to an alternative method ASAP.

    We've had loads of spammer attempt to sign up, we have out accounts on manual validation, so they never actually get as far as posting on the boards, had to switch to Q & A instead of recaptcha, it's slowed it, but I need to tweek the questions a bit more

    Alright now thanks too the Report conversation mod I have installed, one of my members was PM'd gay porn by the same member named "anon" who also posted gay porn on one of the threads... wow they can send PMs now? here's the ip:

    Content IP hosted.by.ioflood.com
    User Registration IP mail125.anonymouse.org

    Pre-moderate all new user posts or you will wake up to porn every morning and your guests will be exposed to it.

    Create user groups and move real members into a user group not subject to pre-moderation unless you have moderators online 24/7, which most forums do not !!

    Ban. Ban. Ban! Ban 'em all! :D
    IN addition to recaptcha!

    Not one or the other. I want both at the same time.

    I'm looking but I can't find it. Was there an addon here that allowed us to promote users based on post count? So you could create a "Probation" user group and set it up so that they wouldn't be a Registered User until say 10 posts. That way you could set the Probation user group to not have sigs or PMs.

    Am I just blind?
