Either way, props to y'all for keepin' the fort intact. Much appreciated!
Over on my band's message board, the spambots got to be such a problem that I just went and banned all the IP addresses in China, Brazil, and a couple other places that escape me at the moment. After three months of getting 50 to 60 spam registrations a day, the IP banning of whole countries finally put an end to it. Now, we get three or four a month, which is managable.

I'm just seeing this now, Steelman - sorry.

Most of them are registering with gmail and we get a few tmails, hotmails, etc. Mike had banned all of those domains and I think when he updated the board recently, the banned domains weren't re-formatted with the update. He is aware of the problems we've been experiencing and hopefully he'll be here soon to fix them. *Praying*
