    Lots of spam users?

    Just noticed a lot of suspicious names at the bottom of the site. What's going on?

    Wouldn't surprise me. I delete so much spam out of queue its not even funny. At least the filters are working well.

    Hear, hear! CF staff has been doing a great job keeping the <r@p off the site.

    Yeah, as of late, spam of the kind “one post per spammer but lots of those” has increased. They are often coming from the same IP or probably some kind of proxy; the posts themselves are caught by the filter but they somehow manage to circumvent any registration challenge-response tests that might be set up (if at all?). And they prefer the General Web Building forum by far. Just today I bulk deleted like 28 posts at once in that forum (that’s one page and a few posts for me).

    If we could all design a script that will stop 100% of robots and mass registrations, we'd be millionaires.
