Thank you for keeping this forum clean!!
That discussion was removed by [topspy] a few days ago. I got a system email when the discussion that I was following was deleted.Fibber2 said:I came to this 'News & Announcements' section looking for last month's announcement from David about the change in admin, but I no longer see it. Removed, or am I looking in the wrong place?
Okay, but why would the post need to be moved? A spam post just needs to be deleted; or if the deletion will break the chain of the thread, then the contents just need to be cleared with an edit.sienna said:think the delete was unintentional as some spammer posted in that thread. with the smf software, you have to split the topic to move a post.
Registration requires reading characters from an image (good idea, but that method has been defeated), and processing a verification e-mail. The e-mail means that the spammer needs control of an e-mail address. This combination seems like reasonable security, but it is obviously no longer sufficient. I have no idea what workable scheme might be effective.Fibber2 said:I think all new member requests need a CV and a background check before being accepted!
