Why are we getting so many spammers as new members.


I saw a latest one on the thread by Aragorn where he wanted a advise on a laptop...
yesterday too I reported a spammer through the reply.
all these guys are physically taking membership or are some bots...
look into this please as I have seen this kind of attack on a different forum too ( photography one ) and the result was suspension of the forum for a few days as the new posts were always not being seen by actual users coz the spammers posted new stuff all th time.

Re: Why are we getting so many spammers as new members.

I have personally banned 4 today maybe 7 yesterday. Dunno about the other mods. Anyway this is not the height of spam...we had the height of spam sometime in jan..My personal record is about 80bans/day

Actually some things on the forum are being adjusted so a few bugs will be present here and there. We were having a problem with recaptcha, our registration captcha system so Karan has temporarily put the registration form on another captcha system which is quite easily broken by automatic bot spammers. Most of these spammers are coming from IPs in Russia/eastern Europe.

Recaptca will be fixed shortly. Then spam gone. tada

Re: Why are we getting so many spammers as new members.

What about existing spammers (arag0rn, stony, rocky, Ad1) ..

Mods: have these bots broken the CAPTCHA thing?

Re: Why are we getting so many spammers as new members.

^^Hey, I think only two of them are actual spammers...

Also, Manish, thanks for posting but I think the mods are pretty much working on just about every bug as of now, most of which will be fixed soon...

Re: Why are we getting so many spammers as new members.

Thanks Vijay, it is indeed reassuring to know that you are all so actively protecting OUR E!. I am amazed to hear about your Ban record and so a Thumbs Up for you.

@ Blue, if you suggest I or any other user should not post the problem they see, as you always come into the picture like we are blaming the mods and you are protecting them..I know what the mods are doing as it has come directly coming from Mods..and that is more reassuring for me.

1mortgagecalculator.info : This is the best mortgage credit card calculator

In these difficult times I believe a lot of the people are looking to get more information on the options they have on their mortgages. I know a website that has the most advanced mortgage calculator available
to get as much infomation possible on the topic.

They also have some calculators related to credit card finance management. This site is by far the best that I have come across on the internet so I am sharing it with you guys.
A very good reference website will help you a lot in saving some bucks.
Thanks

You can see it here at Link cut by moderator.

Bye bye from [E]
