Anyone else getting a bunch of spam private messages? It seems like every couple of days I am getting one.

I have not been paying attention to them mostly, but I have seen a lot more lately. Is there a way to add a captcha for becoming a member??

You're doing the best you can. If only there was a way to stop them from getting our names into their program.

BTW, I found it funny that many of the PMs I get say that their are viruses on my computer. I think my AVG anti-virus software would tell me before someone on a public forum ever could. :p

I might need to get some sort of patch installed on the system to prevent them from getting through
my understanding is that there's a delay in new registrations for FmcNews. Does that involve you or Ausrutherford personally approving the account? Asking becuz quite a number of the spammers' names raise rather obvious red-flags for me...

(just found 2 spam-PM's from "Kurtymann")

...heard from an online friend recently that he had to communicate (email) with the moderators elsewhere to get approved - - if you need help with the time involved for something like that, guess I'd be willing to have a go at it
-Or if you want help deleting these jerks-
just can't promise to do it indefinitely.

Yes, I have to personally screen every registration, and Asked other mods to do the same. These PM spammers are somehow getting around that. You may recall we had a massive spamming problem at the beggining.

I have not been targeted as of late with recent ones but I'll join my fellow moderators in helping eliminate the Spammers
