    Default Banned Users

    You might notice we have a lot of visitors that came to the forum today that were banned. We had some spam IDs slip through yesterday and today. I've tweaked our anti-spam software settings to strengthen the protections and also have made a couple of fields in the user profile mandatory (interests and mbti type) to more easily recognize legitimate new registrants vs. spammers.

    Great job @highlander.

    TypoC: 1

    Spammers: 0

    Let's hope it stays that way.

    Are the spambot usernames generated via software that looks for frequently used words on the forum?

    If so, then I missed all those threads on fish.

    I was particularly fond of "Imsatansoidontcare" or something along those lines.

    I was assuming it used a program that "mashes" trending words (gender) with other, randomly generated words (fish, guy), but nevermind.
