Could you please tell me what security measures I can turn on / put in place to stop people signing up and destroying my forum with spam?
I had my first very bad spam attack today and banned the users/removed the damage manually, but I cannot have that continue to happen.... its a new forum as it is so bad stuff like that is really going to deter new members
Please let me know how to secure the forum against that?
PS I have gone into banned email addresses and put '.ru' - because a LOT of the people who have spammed me in the past have used .ru email addresses. Will this stop all .ru emails from regging?
