    We changed the registration page to ask a racing question, and installed an addon that integrates with StopForumSpam to make sure nobody who matches a spammer on that list can sign up. That should help slow down the onslaught of spammers.

    If it keeps happening, let me know, and I'll try and put in some more drastic measures like preventing new people from posting links entirely...

    You might see profile posts in recent activity that look suspicious or spammy. Be sure to use the Report button on those, too. Sometimes they sneak it into their user profile where it's harder to find unless you're looking for em.

    I really appreciate everyone's help in reporting the spam, and your insurmountable patience. This is a tough nut to crack, there's a major boost in spam activity that all forums are dealing with.

    Every time someone spams, God kills a kitten.

    Thanks for all your work Fury!
