OK, these are the things I've done with the limited time I have, and 2 people have graciously already been deleting spam and banning users (the latter of which does no good). I have another person that offered to help that does the SVDGC site, which is great, but I haven't had time to follow-up with him yet.
SO this is what I've done lately.
-Every spammer uses the language setting of "AR", so if you try to register using "AR", you get sent to woops.com. However, somehow they still insert in the DB with that language, causing me to believe they are not going through the normal registration process. Because if I test that it is disallowing me before it ever inserts me into the database.
-I made all links "Nofollow" which absolutely does away with any value of them even spamming here in the first place. (i.e. a search engine doesn't see that as a new inbound link for the posted sites)
I have now made it require approval for new registrations.
It says this when you register: Your account has been created. However, this board requires account activation by the administrator group. An e-mail has been sent to them and you will be informed when your account has been activated.
The emails go to: email@example.com
Which I presume is Scott or Jeffery (it's not me)
If they try to login before having registered:
The specified username is currently inactive. If you have problems activating your account, please contact a board administrator.
Really need to update and make sure we have all the latest/greatest spam stuff, too, and that is the point at which I requested someone donate some time to help us with that. I will try to get the interested party involved by the end of this week to do so.
