Better Spam Filtering
+1

Heyo,

Kinda new here but I was curious if maybe we aught to up the security of the onboarding process?
It seems someone wrote a nice script for our forum and bots are having no trouble adding two numbers together to get in.

Who's the Admin? Can we put a better captcha in there?
Been a part of a lot of forums and botrot is real and will fuck up a community slowly over time.

I'd hate to see this forum go down again after missing it for so long.

Thanks Derek. I'm working on better filters and tools to keep these chumps out, but I'd love some deputies to help keep eyes on the boards and shut down spam if it happens. Send me a DM if interested?

In meantime, downvote any spam posts as you've been doing - that is an effective method.
