Hello,
We have all the security measures we can in place, and I have tightened them over the past several months. The Security measures are stoping 99% of the spam it would be uncontrollable without the Security.

The posts that are making it past security are not spam bots they are actual people registering confirming there account via email then making posts. Unfortunately I do not know that they are spammers until they make there first post. I then ban there username, email, and ip address to prevent them from making future posts. I check the forums before about once per week unless someone emails me that there is spam to delete. I will start checking it more often however keep in mind that NO system is 100% perfect if spammers really want to make a post they will figure out a way of doing it.

Best regards,
Brad

Thanks Brad. Just had to rant a bit. There's no accounting for the efforts of spammers. I appreciate your efforts holding back the tide.
