    I have surface interval time on my hands for the next month if another temporary spam fighter is needed on the forum.

    Regards,

    A quick update...we are banning the offending users and blocking IPs as fast as we can. We have also changed the human authentication process twice in the past three days. We are now using the question and answer method and we will see if that works.

    Cheers,

    Ken

    Re: Why can't the spammers be controlled better

    First, thanks to the RBW staff for purging spam posts and the spammers.

    With that said, there are now about 20 threads that always show up as having unread posts (those posts being some of the afore mentioned spam, and having now been deleted)... which seem to be stuck in the unread status, even after I go into each and every one of them.

    Which leads to my question: is there any other way to mark a thread as "read"?

    We got hit pretty hard yesterday with many spammers... One single spammer generating more than 80 posts.

    On each forum there is an option to mark it as read...

    I see you have been a member since 2011 yet this is your first post? Nuff said.
    My post was meant entirely lighted heartedly. However, I can see why you would be wary of a first time poster. To make up for my sins I will start posting on this forum on the CCR topics. I have a growing interest and many questions.
