forums were down for a bit last week due to a server upgrade. but it's up and running again.
on the matter of spam in the forums ... urgh ... i'm up to my eyeballs trying to keep them in check. spam bots are getting smarter by the minute. they now bypass user registration and even those graphic verification thingies which i currently have in place. i shudder to think what they will do next? take over the world?
me, a non-techie person and all, i need some ideas on how to get rid of them once and for all, if that is possible? or is there other forum / software / host that i should consider. any input much appreciated.
