I remove 8 - 10 spam threads every morning (Denver time). Unfortunately most seem to be posted 8 - 10 hours earlier (from Europe?). Each one is from a 'new member', so blocking an email address won't work. I guess we need an administrator in Europe who can get to them before I do.

Do you know if they are all coming from the same IP address?


Sorry Mike. I was not criticizing. I deal with spam, phishing, ddos at my day job.

Is there an automated spam filter or check that can be installed? Tbh I know nothing about the technical side of forums but if there is such a thing it would probably make life much easier for Mike.

All appear to be from different email addresses. I don't know if they're from only 1 ISP. I'm sure that there are automatic spam blockers, but it might block/delay a real apistophile. As in the American Justice system: better 10 criminal go free than to jail 1 innocent person (sadly, it doesn't always work that way).

I personally have no control over how the site operates. You'll need to contact the site admin for this.

Thank you for fixing the spam. It seems that the forum has been spam free for several months. What was the solution?
