New SPAMbot countermeasure

Tue Jun 05, 2012 8:55 am

We're testing NuCaptcha for new site registrants and hoping this cuts down on the amount of SPAMbot posts that get through. Cross your fingers.

Shit dog, not that they are asking for recognition but the mods work harder on the site then I do nowadays.

Kudos to them and the community for making this thing work.

I know they make it look easy to cut over, but I (we) have put so many hours into phpBB development that I will never convert this site over. Think about the (albeit kinda dumb) side pages, formatting, admin familiarity, etc that I have invested in phpBB. I can't.

Ahh but the mods are like fellow forum members. Just the way it should be. The best people any forum could ask for.

so I guess the new countermeasures are not working as well as planned?

It's not often spam makes me laugh, but that was kinda funny.

That use was in before the new captcha.

It's my favourite when the spammers spam in these kind of threads. :lol:
