    I've caught a few in the couple of months or so but yes, you guys do do a great job of getting them.

    The point with the mail.ru domain is that it seems to be used exclusively by spammers. 50% + of my spammers use them and NO real members of the community do. If you search the database here I would be really shocked if you found a genuine posting modder with a mail.ru address but damn certain they are all over your spam logs.

    Of course blocking .ru completely would be a no no, but if you can't find a genuine modder with a mail.ru addy in the DB you will cut spam registrations by blocking mail.ru only.

    I have to jump in here to applaud our spam snipers, they are very effective, thanks. Very little destroys the enjoyment of a good forum like spam.

I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible, and when I leave you will finally understand why storms are named after people.”

    Maybe we should use this thread to report spammers...

    I'll start:

    TBCS's staff is so heavily overpowered (in a good way) that we tend to catch spammers before they do any damage and tend to catch normal people who are stirring the **** pot not too long after they do it.

    Hence, no need for the report button. Also, it's like Jon said, it just e-mails all of us and chances are by the time most of us get to our e-mail, it's gone already.

    To prevent this from happening, anyone into finding an open-source "Captcha"-like program that supplies a random series of numbers for registration? I think it would save a lot of aches and pains in the long run.

    Our current system does use this i think.
