Did I you know, Spam stands for Special Processed American Meat.

Not a lot of people know that.

I've had some on other forums where the user will have to answer a series of questions or solve puzzles that are a tad more difficult than the "Captcha" you see on some sites.
Maybe that could be implemented?

I'm not too sure about that, but please, please, please don't add a "Captcha" - they are the most irritating thing I've ever encountered on the net! :evil:

Half of them are illegible, the others don't work until at least the third attempt............. They are the work of the Devil. :x

Thanks guys, reslly appreciate this. We get a lot of spammers overnight and we catch a lot of them but some get through. I do a clean up first thing and during the day the mods get notified as soon as a post is reported, so we do keep on top of it.

If people comment on spam posts it just makes the job of the mods a lot more painstaking.
