It was written in what looked like arabic...very strange. Anyways this topic is as a milestone for my first bit of moderating in 2012, and first bit of moderating in many years.

Good job!

I know a lot of spam has been blocked by the spam filter lately but all the forigen stuff still manages to get through. :2

I just found one in another section by a forgien member with 15 posts so im guessing it was the same guy. Just banned his account and blocked the IP.

Just moved two bigboy1 topics made in 2007 to the archived topics because the same poster revived both topics. Is this the return of bigboy...I hope not.

Paul there was another foreign topic again today. What do you want done with them? I can't ban people so you want me to put them in archived topics so you or Aero can, or just delete them and forget about it?

If you click on the posters name to go to their profile there should be a link to flag them as a spammer. If you click that it'll unapprove any posts they make/made and I can ban them and blacklist the ip from there.

I think theres a new IPB update out now so i'll see if I can get them to install it, hopefully that'll come with an improved spam filter.

Ah, I thought it was setup for mods but theres no option to enable it.

If you just move the topic to Recycle Bin i'll sort it from there.

Looks like it might just be an Admin option, it doesnt even list it in the Control Panel.

Dave your Fanta was seized by customs :(

I've just tried changing the question & answer challenge to a wrestling related question, so hopefully that might help get rid of any newly registering bots.

Not until I have more posts than you. Besides this is the only place I can swear and rant on about shit no one cares about and not get flamed by 14 year olds...because no one reads it.
