As you realized there is a problem with all the Spam-Bots in this forum. I know it's very annoying. I will not pretend as if I were an expert of protecting the forum out of spams but I'll try to help. Some ideas :

- I've noticed that there is something like a CAPTCHA (Wirte the red letters of the logo, and so on..) for the registration. Wouldn't be a CAPTCHA with a visual image that generates random numbers better (similar to the one to vote for tunes)?
- Use automated and manual filters that the spammers won't overwrite them hopefully.
- Block suspicious links or the user is allowed to post only less than 2 links per post.
- (A Button) To block/ban the user or the administrator bans his/her IP adress.

Have a good week(end).

Yes, we know this. The Q&A was selected after the reCaptcha was no longer good enough. We will do something with this in short time, right now I've disabled new registrations.

I realized that the "Spam-Bots" have now a new method to spread advertisement links on the forum. The most of the new registered user have in their signatures links to various shops, boards (for example : "Cheap shoes, free software...".
It's a pity that the forum gets less "normal" users, just some Spam-Bots that are putting advertisements in their signatures. I think that you have to check this out. It is just a little information for the forum.

Ok good to know. I didn't know it before. I just though that the forum gets a user list that has unnecessary fake accounts to spread their advertisements here.
Anyway, case closed! :P
