Just wanted to point out that we've now installed Spam-O-Matic on the forum. You probably never saw the amount of spam that was being posted, because I'd set things up so that first posts needed to be moderated and I deleted the junk at that point so it never showed up publicly. But that manual intervention to clean up the rubbish quickly became tedious...

You might've noticed the Spam-O-Matic stats at the bottom the forum homepage, which look like this:


Spam-O-Matic Statistics
3658 Spammers Denied Registration
20 Spammers Permanently Banned
20 Spammers submitted to StopForumSpam
1567 Spammy Posts Automatically Moderated

As you can see it's doing a fantastic job stopping known spammers from even registering on the site!

However if anyone has any problems creating a legit account or getting their first post to show up then get in touch - details are on the Support (http://www.neckdiagrams.com/support) page!

Happy Forum'ing :cool:
