Has anyone else been noticing all the spam coming up on the forums?

Any idea if there's a way to stop it Steve? I guess you know you're big time when people start spamming you http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

It's always an on going problem. We try to delete it as fast as possible.

Maybe you should implement the "CAPTCHA" security feature before you post an item on the forum.

This determines if the person posting a note is a person or a computer and it has to fill in what is the text in the picture.

This is a good way to prevent spam

That is a very good idea and I will need to do something like that in the near future. I am investigating what would work best.
