Sorry for the Russian SPAM posts

Postby FlyingPenguin » Tue Mar 15, 2016 6:19 pm

I figured out we had the Guests user account setup to allow limited posting (no user account required, just pass a CAPTCHA). I just turned that off.

Heh.

In order to reduce the number of Russian and Polish SPAM bot registrations (not really so bad, but I have to delete 5 or 6 a week) I setup the registration process to use the Google ReCAPTCHA instead of the default CAPTCHA. Let's see if that reduces the number of them. It's always possible it's a real human trying to register those accounts.
