    Hi Guys

    Thought id include everyone on this


    Spam bots are still having accounts made with malicious links attached.

    FunCaptcha as fun as it is, just doesnt work at stopping them


    Could we look into better protection and perhaps a better user verification system.

    Reverting back to question and answer for now.

    Thanks

    Hector! I blocked following Emails, so new bots can't register with those emails:

    @5crafts.com, @cashette.com, @web.de, @gaweb.com, @gawab.com, @sina.com, @bazehost.info, @BonBon.net, @dellmail.com, @hotpop.com, @mail.ru, @muchomail.com, @netzero.net, @ru.com , @ukr.net, @xatqcxox.com
    I saw that the bots you banned a while ago, were all using the following email @sina.com, the email has been blocked, so hopefully it will help us a bit preventing the bots from registering to the forums :)

    - All those emails above are emails bots uses upon registering on forums -
