    I wish they would all get VD.

    I really don't see the point.

    I think things should be arranged so that spam emails and messages cannot be blocked. But all spam would have to include a tag that states the name and address of the individual responsible for its manifesting.......When the first one is dismembered things would slow down.

    I use my gmail account for posting my email address to every little site I have to register for, unless I feel it's reputable enough that I can give them my regular email address through my ISP then I have 2 levels for that. Anytime I get spam it's usually through when I have my work email forwarded through my personal address but that is very rare. It takes little time to determine whether you trust a site enough to give them your junk(this person/site isn't very impirtant and may end up sending me tons of mystery meat) email or your personal(I think I want to read every message immediately from this person/site)email

    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    there's some easy vBull addons you can use to stop spammers here. auto-moderation works well, you can add whatever keywords you want and its often enough to keep them all out. i also use "check4spam", they work well together.

    I have the NoSpam! registration mod installed, and I use CAPTCHA, but I am going to try installing the Check4SPAM mod now.

    What would be nice is for auto-moderation to have a function that autobanned members that post urls in their first 10 post. Add to that a 24 hour registration delay before people are allowed to post after they register. Then, add a requirement for CAPTCHA for the first 10 post by new users.

    Those 3 things would annoy spammers enough that they wouldn;t waste their time to spam IM. It would annoy new users, but it would cut spam by 95% at least.
    Fucking Determined!

    I hear ya, but its a double edged sword, you want to make it difficult for spammers, but at the same time you don't want to make it too difficult for new users to join and post...

    We were getting hit by spam bots so I changed the NoSpam! registration questions, you now have to type in the word that is asks you to and there are 10 different random words. I also added the mod suggested above (Check4SPAM) which I believe will cut down 99% of the spammers that are not bots...we'll see!

    I still think that you should ban all IPs from Nigeria. That's where I saw most of the spam come from when I was a mod.

    I use the Yahoo! paid email account and I only get about 1 piece of spam to my inbox every other day. And I've had that account since 1996.
