When I saw your post, I didn't know what you were referring to. Now I know... Maybe use Barracuda Networks firewall?

Can you set a limit on posts per hour for new users or something?

Phew, I think I just killed at least 120 posts and blocked at least a dozen IP's. The spam wave should be finished by now.

Perhaps a cunning way for a newbie to get post count up so they can use personal classifieds!

Oh, and add another 76 to that total as there were a lot of spam posts in the for sale section as well.

Do you use any anti-spam addons like Spam-O-Matic/SFS?

On the few other forums that I help admin, they make a big difference. We have episodes about once every 4 or 5 months, for a day or so, then it's otherwise clam.

All fine but I was banned for no apparent reason and all my post were deleted why ?

I am not a spammer at all....I barely had 10 or 15 post maybe.... was really surprised to see my IP banned at work and my account completely deleted with all my posts. :(

Thanks Frankie, yes I created a new account with the same username. As for the work IP, I will check Monday at work.

Thanks for your help. :)

Thanks for taking it so lightly. When you have the IP, please PM it to me. I'll bedlock it ASAP.

Hi Frankie, not having enough post to pm, do you check your email or is there a place I can post the IP address?

Thanks
