Something weird is happening, at least to me. When I posted a response to the " Guages popping out " thread, 2 posts from someone called " Pregnancy Sympoms " popped right up behind it. I got a bad feeling people!!!!

there are a lot of "soon to be" spammers who have become members in the last couple days.

Heck, one of them even has a user name of "pregnancy-symptoms" LOL!

Just looking at some other areas of our site, and it seems to be spreading.......hopefully someone is aware that can stop it!!!!!!!

O man, someone needs to get in front of these before we lose our site, with the awesome recent addition of tapatalk, for another month. is there an emergency contact number to an admin or something. im at my desk on a slow day, can make a call if needed

there needs to be a moderator on here.

He can capture the IP address, send it to the web master who will then ban the IP address.

First line of defense is to ban these new members as quickly as they sign up.

I'm still a moderator on the Supra boards, and we haven't been hit like this.

wonder how many spammers got thru after all those ip addresses got deleted about a month ago?

Let me know if this is still going on.. I suspect it had something to do with me messing with the human verification mod last week.. I thought the current one was entirely too hard to deal with so I switched over to "Captcha".. As soon as I did I started seeing a lot more reported spam postings. After seeing all these I switched back to the more difficult human verification settings.. Anyone still seeing a bunch of spammers out there?? I have not received nearly as many reported posts.. Please keep me posted. kj
