Not sure if I am on the right thread, if so my apologies with this my first post as a newbie. I keep getting spammers who register as members each time because the captcha facility is active. I ban their IP's but I guess they know how to keep changing them. They mostly come from the one area - New York. So I have to check out each one and delete them separately. Is there any other method of dealing with this problem? I am also a candidate for the 'Dummies' award re language used by you experts...so a really simple step-by-step solution (if any) would be much appreciated. Thank you.
