Attention spammers.

Post by korexus » Mon Apr 07, 2008 6:38 pm

At 19:06 BST today, the WoK boards got their first bit of spam since, well, ever.

I know that it was almost certainly sent by an automated script, but just on the off chance that you do read this, Ronny, here are the forum rules: http://www.kaomaris.com/phpNuke/modules ... opic&t=397

To reiterate the important part,
RULES

1. No Spamming/Trolling/Hacking : Self explanitory really.
We should probably put a captcha on sign up. Does anyone have a preference? - I'm torn between the one taken from books to be digitised (for actually being useful) and the one with the cats (because it's different and apparently very hard for machines to beat).

Cats?

No matter how difficult to solve a captcha may be, people who want to access free porn sites will solve them for the bot. I read spammers do create such porn sites to help their bots with captchas.

I say we go for useful.
