Default What's with all the spam lately?

Either it's way worse than normal or the mods are way slower to getting around to it.

Vanirra, where have you been lately?

Up until about a month ago I was throwing out up to 1,000 a day. It has gone down lately, but it is still a major pain in the ass. Except perhaps for some hidden away in some obscure, remote thread, you won't see the same spam hanging around more that a day... until the next hundred show up.

We have been trying to find a better solution than hand weeding the garden as we do now, but so far that magic solution hasn't presented itself.

Upgrade to a newer version of the forum software that includes captcha registration?

Think it was discussed previously and someone said newer versions of this software are garbage, but wtf do I know
