    Need Technical Computer Help

    I am a moderator at another web site on hunting. We are running the site on V-Bulletin 3.6 and we are being loaded with spam on buying perscription drugs, cigarettes, and porn. I have been banning the members names who post there as well as their IP's but we still get 5-6 such posts everyday.
    Has anyone here ever encountered this problem and if so, how do you fix it?

    I'm not really sure if you can completely do away with spammers, you may have to ask Webby on that but, there is really nothing you can do Computer wise, just keep deleting and banning, they will eventually run out of IP address's and proxy servers. I mean if you find out what company is really causing all the spam, you could file a lawsuit but, that in itself is a large task.

    Just buy the perscription drugs, cigarettes, and porn and they'll leave you alone

    I tried that, but now I'm getting spam from people wanting me to buy their products to get clean, quit smoking & join the anti-porn movement.

    Well looks like you just need to move, otherwise it's just going to turn into one nasty cycle.

    I don't know much about vBulletin but in phpBB there is a function called "Enable Account activation", select "admin" and an admin needs to activate new users before they can post.

    Re: Need Technical Computer Help

    I am sure webby would be able to offer some good advice.

    Its not the same one.
    His is more of a North Dakota hunting site and they get bombed with spam...I mean bombed.
    And they have to delete each individual post.
    Whereas here, we can delete all the posts by one user.
