what i would like to know is why IGG doesnt have a spam prevention system in place to prevent this
yahoo, hotmail, facebook etc all have spam prevention measures, usually the type the text from the distorted picture
or maybe its just another one of ledheds old friends coming back for another hello lol

I think I may have finally figured out what these spammers are doing.

A short while back we had a "test" section where unsigned in people could post on the forum.
seems this section only got hidden and not totally closed and removed.
the spam bots are still finding the threads there and posting in them.

I have left a message for admin to look into it.


No, this doesn't explain why 30 were signed in... unless they were registering at the time the screen shot was taken maybe?
unfortunately the test section does not show names..  just the words:  "Guest and most of an IP address" and the word "Unregistered".

So everyone knows that the hidden section has been removed and that SHOULD eliminate the spammers.

So if you see a bunch of spammers again please let us know.

thanks
