Post Spammers
Why have there been so many spam accounts recently? Maybe we need some kind of extra way to try to keep out the spammers. It gets annoying to see "oh boy, new posts!" and then find out they are all spam.

I think that forum engine is very old and easy for spambots.

I believe the problem isn't in engine, but in lack of activity of admins and moderators. :meditate: :kickcan:

It had used to be similar in past, but actions had been taken more quickly than after a week.

BTW Happy New Year! :)

Why not appoint forum moderators? I could volunteer police-ing the topics.

Thanks
