6500 registration requests and rising!

Hello,
I'm getting lots of fake reagistration requests - literally hundreds a day. I've just been away for 3 weeks and have 6504! I've seen another post about this too.

1. How do I stop them coming in?

2. Is there a quick way to delete them all in bulk?

Thanks.

FQ

Check this board/thread: http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?board=antispam

In a nutshell - go over to BoardMod and get Anti-spam Question and either HoneyPot or SpamFuits. (A spambot may learn to get past one but rarely two anti-spam utilities.).

For deleting all those registration see: http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1348577700
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

You can find the anti-spam question mod here

And another good one is the Spam fruits mod which can be found here.

Both are very effective at stopping them.
