Thank you, Maggie ..... once again!

Just having the first few posts screened shouldn't be a problem for legitimate newbies. What most do is write an introduction post, then maybe ask a question in a second thread. When those two posts are approved and posted, all they have to do is respond a couple times and they are "official".

Anna, your thread is why the lightbulb finally went off for me! You asked if there was anything that could be done and it took me three days to figure out why none of the other forums have this problem!

I used to help run a forum (not as large as this one though) and we got hit with spam pretty bad too. One thing that helped was blocking certain spammy email domains from registering. A lot of spam was coming from people with @mail.ru addresses, so blocking them cut down on it quite a bit. But yeah, getting rid of spam is a neverending battle!

Maggie, have you been able to talk to Yung yet? I just reported six spam threads. I am getting really sick of this and I am sure you are, too!

Bumping this again as nothing has been done yet. This is what I saw when I logged on to SM this morning, five new spam threads.

I am getting so tired of reporting all this spam every day when there is an easy way to cut down on it.
