LOL, f*** the spammers no doubt! It's pretty rare that they get a post through with the changes you made to the security a couple of months ago. The thing that seems to be slipping through the cracks are the tags... every time the system junks a post the tags that are attached the post stay valid and aren't deleted.
I think the idea Sac had a while back of adding some sort of captcha function to making posts would be a huge deterrent, if it's even possible. Whether it's a typical alphabet style or the new mathematical type, it would make sure no script spammers are getting through(which are 99.99% of the spammers).
...SLC does an amazing job tho - thank you brother!!
THCx for the props man, I try to stay on top of it as much as possible. This site is our home and I take great pride in keeping it clean!
