    How long has this been going on for? I only joined recently, and even though the threads are deleted after a while and member is banned, they just keep popping back up. There's no other way to counter this or something?

    All that is required is for the forum moderator(s) to approve the first three or so messages from a new member before they get posted. This forum does not have that high a rate of new membership so it should not be too burdensome for the moderators. I saw this on another forum that I recently joined and it seems to work.

      Yeah i'm getting sick of these spam bots. they need to die in a tire fire. even the most liberal filter should be able to spot this latest one.

      Does the site have Tapatalk integration? i believe the spammers are using a mdified Tapatalk app to post their spam, and the tapatalk integration bypasses new user moderation.

      look here

      senior member?!?!? join date three days ago?!?!? there's some hacking going on.
