Just hope that I don't get locked out (I have a hotmail.com email address)...

Good Luck Joe!

Assuming you logged in, Carsten - you aren't locked out, if you get my drift.

I banned hotmail.com yesterday...

I'm fighting fire with fire.

Although I still have to manually delete these users, I can use a piece of software that can automatically ban email addresses.

Since these "users" are being added automatically, I think this is only fair.

It's still proving to be a nightmare...they've been coming in thick and fast, these damn spam users.

I've been banning email addresses, IP addresses and deleting users right, left and centre... Mad

Horrible. Who'd be a moderator, eh? I wonder what the source is and why they bother??

I severely recommend not opening the www's attached to the 'new members' as they are probably the source as to 'why'?

I've tried a couple, Pete, not had a problem...some of the pages don't exist anyway.

Well I'm not going to. I'll probably have me bank account wiped out, a load of eastern european porn uploaded and the computer going up in smoke a week later. It's what happened to our last computer (apart from the bank account and the porn was from Israel!!)

Wise move. Western european porn is much better Mr. Green

...but just in case, the best thing to do would be to copy it all onto DVD data disks.

That way you can check for any viruses at your leisure Wink

It's the only way.

I think I'm slowly getting on top of these bogus users...

I've banned about 3 million IP addresses, as well as deleting users and banning email addresses.

I hope I haven't locked anyone out unintentionally...

I haven't unbanned "hotmail.com" addresses yet...

It's an uphill battle, but I won't be defeated.

It's not at all ideal, but could you temporarily stop all new members registering, and put up a message stating that it's just a temporary situation?
