This week - Testing a server-based spam filter

Postby goose egg » 09 Jan 2012, 18:31

We are going to install a spam filter on our server, which will hopefully reduce the number of robot registrations that spam our forums.

If you notice a slowdown in the speed of the site, please post about it here. If we run into serious problems with the server, we could "rollback" the website to the last 24-hour backup (which would wipe out any posts made after the backup was made). We don't expect any serious problems like this to happen

When someone sends you some shocking e-mail and suggests that you pass it on, don't. At least not until you've first confirmed its truth at, the Internet's authority on e-mailed myths. This includes get-rich schemes, Microsoft/AOL cash giveaways, and--especially lately--nutty scare-tactic messages about our Presidential candidates.
