Found a couple of old threads on this, but nothing too recent....

Is anyone finding the amount of spam littering this site lately to be inhibiting their ability to peruse the forum effectively? I used to surf the forums via the "new posts" button, but in the last couple of weeks I find nearly the entire first page of results to be almost complete spam....


I don't mean to bitch anyone out, but is there nothing that can be done to stop this? A more enhanced login/signup procedure that will beat the spambots?

Just wondering....not trying to

It would be more work for the mods (maybe not since they have to clean up the spam anyway) but I really think that all first posts should go to a mod to be approved before appearing on the board. Once it's established that the individual is a normal poster and not a bot/spammer, then they get full access.

I've seen this on some other sites.
