Yea, spambots have been really active lately. Every morning I’ll get on HE and start deleting a bunch of their post and accounts, which keeps the forums clear for most the day I think, but spambots start up again later in the afternoon and in the late evening.
If you guys notice a lot of spam threads being created out of no where, feel free to send me a message and I’ll take care of it as soon as I can. And if anyone has suggestions on how to deal with spambots, feel free to share them :)
A couple weeks ago a similar thread was made discussing spam and Jordan listed the plugins he used to block spam on HE which did include captchas, but I don’t know what type of captchas. I also think the ones that you have to fill out before you post would be effective.
