YaBB Anti-spam Hit Squad - Invitation to Admins
I have formed a working committe/group using Google Groups to function as a single-point-of-exchange for Ideas, Information and Solutions for fighting Forum Spam on YaBB forums. Although the group is by invitation, YaBB Team Members, Coders/Modders and active, involved Admins are all welcome.

If you are interested in being part of this in any role, just PM me...

Good Luck and may spammers get paresthesia

I still get surprised whenever I see spam posts here in this particular forum. These posts get deleted or moved over to a private section within a day or two it seems, but still, here in this forum?

What's up with that?  Roll Eyes

It was a hu-bot for sure, and there is little defense against them other than swatting (and reminding them of their parentage).

Cool
