lol yep beat me to it

yer this needs to be sorted dmin m8 asap you need to do a backend sweep and cleaout all those members that are spammers theres about 30+ registered on this site and they can be activaed at any time by there bot controllers many are sitting and monitoring the site for unactitvity when the site shows no posting fora few hours these spam bots kick in and then a post will appear there is a new register everyday now and 90% of them are spammers as they have already had access on the site by allwoing the posting
so fair thing would be firstly

1)new poster can only post in 1 forum thread only if it appears to be a good person then allow access to rest of forum

2)each new member must be checked out if details in there profile are bad delete and ip ban straight away many spammers on here hae left links in there profiles
there are some other ways also to check people ip addresses the tools i use for all my sites can locate your door from the ip trace within seconds even if you try to route through a untracable path it helps to send reports the the fbi and other authorites of unlawfull porn ie well the sickos out in the world today everyone that trys to post on any of my forums is reported within seconds and there home addresses given and isps so they can be got at for there sick ways the kiddie porn pushers out there beware of me you sick F*CKS

3) thers alot of dam good and very nice people on the forum so to not hinder those that post happily on this site regroup them so they do not have to go through any checks if the above is followed.

4)change the registration add custom fields to it that the joiner MUST fill in spambots only know the basics and cannot understand many other added things you want the joiner to fill in so they will not bother and move on try that.

5)stop alot of area being easily accessed by guests protect some forum sections if a bot can read the sectin it will target words in that area ie don't you find it odd somtimes that a spammer will post related subjects in forum sections but instead have a link or words related to it;s becuase it read that section before registering.

6)check your site between these hours if you are ever online and doing things bots tend to attack between certain hours 1am-5am uk time related add your hours from other countrys roughly this a i believe is because alot of internet traffic dies around these times servers are usa bound mainly those that are using usa servers and in the uk or just overseas then these hours are good for you to check on your sites for spammer posts that normally appear it;s a rough thing but seems to be how it works and when they post

people will register if they are genuine anyway keep the general guest out also give you the upperhand on things aswell EXAMPLE one of the nice peole on this site posted a redhot tip on a slot machine that will empty it in seconds god we wish but you mnever know lol then a guest noses over the forum you have allowed them to see that hot tip FREELY with out registration and away they go with that tip BUT WHAT ABOUT KEY WORDS ECT ECT FOR SEARCHENGINES your question maybe on stopping guests viewing the forum its true it may provent some but very little searchengines like google yahoo are different they will register anway and you may see many iddferent things happen on your site when google or yahoo join they become admin/members/ect ect and appear as different groups on your site even if you did not allow them well they are tracking all key words on your forum and will show up anway in searchengines so don;t think it hinders search reults as it really doesn't make much difference to be honest disallowing guests to read all sections of your site.

the main point is new members on the forum must have checks end off when they join they get one chance if they screwup ie post a spam then it;s goodbye and ip ban email ban ect
i hope this helps others aswell as this site
dam spammers need shooting and squashing the more sites that do get a grip on these idiots then the better the net will be and less lag on networks as a good 60% of traffic on the net is spammers trying to sell there crap that hogs main networks and causes you issues with site lags and other net related problems ever had a night where your interent runs like crap and wondered why well in not all cases but some the spam thats being filtered through causes bottnecks at some network juctions causing issues with some terminals tha may be way outdated many of the spammers are overseas in russia/poland/ukraine they are the cause of 70% of spam worldwide so banning there routes will help(sorry if you are a good person from those countrys but your goverment need to be kicked up the arse to allow it to carry on as those countrys they are the cause of many issues russia being the very worst offending country in the world people say it's the usa for spammers but thats not the case usa only produce about 8-10% of spam traffic the rest is devided between the other countrys around the world.

so if you are a site owner then after reading my little wordings lol just take those 5 extra minites to stop spammers from ever entering your sites if you think you have done enough to provent a spammer then do a test on your site register from a different computer so the ip is different then goto your site and post a spam link if from registration to posting takes less then 30 seonds or less but not more then you are at risk if you did it straight away and you had no issues doing it then thats how a spammer will do it but if you add some custom areas maybe validate there email addresses is another way then you maybe able to stop alot of it then try again if it take longer and having to gfill in extra bits await your email to be validated then you are less lible to be attacked by these bots

i must add though the above suggestions are only to provent bots thats all a spammer is a bot roque program that some idiot is running on there pcs searching the net for easy targets

ok so you have a spam on the site what do you do as a member firstly DO NOT EVER EVER EVER CLICK THE LINK is the best and only solution that anyone can give ok you can send a pm to a member of staff for that site but donl;t keep sending them lol but if you have pressed one of these links as sadly some are so temping with there wordings then i would seriously check your system for things and delete all cookies/temp interent files and check through your system as god knows what you have let in it could be a multitude of nastys and such so please check your pcs if you have if you find nothing then you got very lucky thats all i can say lol buti would be certain there will be traces of some nasty rubbish hiding on your system


ok i hope this helps some sorry i banged on but due to the experiences i have had and over the years of running websites i have seen my fair share of rubbish and if it helps others to keep there sites ticking nicly from my above suggestions then thats good i am no expert and never will be but these are meally ways that have cut spam down to meally a trickle or in some cases to nil on all sites i have helped and all sites i have over my networks

great new that mark nice to see this is being looked after
hopfully will sort these out and stop them coming on the site i would sugest removing them totally and blocking there ips and email accounts as the yes they are in the members list still will only bring more onto the site as this site is now on a list that spammers can use but i am certain you have your things inplace though on new members joining admin authorise is a good way be certain as i think you will that all background checks are good if you have any that you cannot seem to track then send them me i'll see what i can find for you and let you know but yep thumbs up glad you are on top of it

all the best :)
