For every "New Member" I ban as a spammer, how many slip through the net?

We get incomprehensible Thai, Garage door repairs from USA, Lawyers from USA, and Lock repairs from USA. I'm sure there are others that slide through...

Really! for such a quiet forum that's a lot, i moderate another forum and we don't get so many, but vBulletin has a handy one touch ban and clean function.:D

Then there are those that just register and don't join in the fun, and others like the one showing as "newest member" at the moment that hasn't filled out any User CP but you can tell by the user name that he/she/it is very possibly a thai spammer. but one can't ban them because they haven't done anything wrong yet!

That's odd there where 10 posts by him yesterday,, hence my comment, all pointlessly dragging up old threads that where years old, and his profile now says banned, i thought you had deleted the posts and banned him?

Not me. One of the other admins must've done it.

Hi, just to say that I've registered as a new member but I am a real person, with a real family, and a real bike (BlackBird XX).

It is, undoubtedly, the best bike in the World (not just because it is mine, but because it is... really!!!!) :)

I bought it with 12 years and 12K Km on the clock. The previous owner had it for good weather and barely rode with it. It is an amazing bike and I really love it!

You are most welcome Richier, I nearly had a Blackbird once. I saw it in the showroom on the Tuesday night. Went back Saturday to buy it only to find that the bloody bike shop had burnt down!!! True this was in Didcot about 2000. I was allowed to get a bike for my 40th birthday! I ended up with a Fazer 600 which I bought brand new and still got! I even sold it once on Ebay, then bought it back from the same guy that I had sold to 5 years later!

Oh yeah feel free to join in any time we need some new blood on here...

I have permanently banned this "Newbie" unless he can prove otherwise that his intentions were good.

John Walker, you were banned because:-

A: You didn't bother to fill out a user CP up on the left hand side. It only takesa few minutes and it lets the rest of the forum members know a bit about you and that you are a nice genuine chap (or chapess!).

B;- you will have to be more subtle than just posing questions over some problem on your "motorcycle" then adding some drivel of a link to some spurious website which we consider as spam. Join in the forum honestly, then once you have gained the confidence of the members then you can maybe drop the link into a posting! But until you can prove otherwise and convince us that you are genuine, you remain banned!

And this goes for all other Newbies so be warned.....!

(Probably won't stop the Yank locksmiths, lawyers, and garage door salesmen, or the Thai spammers continuing to try though!)
