Porn and fake accounts.

Post by TDR » Tue Mar 14, 2017 1:23 am

Isn't it time someone turned off the automatic account authorization. Maybe consider a new captcha code method.
Way too many rogue accounts and porn links appearing. It wouldn't take much effort to check the possible new account requests each day or two and weed out the fake ones!

It is constant, and really ruins a good forum

I think just using Captchav2 would help. That and a little daily housekeeping.

I know, its very difficult, I used to run a few forums, and we used to have to activate accounts. Was the easiest way!

Today's bots are able to click the links they have sent to disposable mail addresses, also decode captchas etc.
