  • Is there a way ...

    ... to report spammers before they post?

    If not, then I'll post it here: new member RoseanneH is most likely a spammer: http://stopforumspam.com/ipcheck/95.6.7.188

    To cut down on spam, I propose auto-banning all users who have numbers in their username.

      There are legitimate users who have numbers, and spammers who do not. However, I strongly recommend using email verification and checking with a "known offenders" list, such as the one I linked to above.

          The problem with spammers is that they sometimes hire third-worlders to solve CAPTCHA's for them so they can spam.

                    If we prebanned everybody the staff wouldn't have any work to do.

                    And we can't have that now, can we?

                            Would this be too mean of a joke? "except spambots are smarter and don't have the logic problems and research fails"

                              We could probably pull a "Ransom of Red Chief" scenario with that. "Here, you can have our Canadians ... but you have to pay to give them back."
