Spam blocker IP address
« on: December 03, 2013, 02:27:21 pm »
Yesterday something changed. I got  folks from my site contacting me through email that they are being block from the site. They say this shows up when trying to get to the site from 10am on 12/1   Jut tried it again now I an getting a screen that says my ip address has been blocked by spam blocker.
 


Do I need to start sorting IP addresses and posting them here so you dont block them all?   

 This addy I know this guy first hand and he is being denied as a spammer.  IP addy is                  removed IP now

If you are blocked there should be a link to appear that allows you to unblock that ip address

I have had a series of ip addresses attempting to register for an account.


I have googled 'look up (number)' and they all come back as spam bots.


How can i deal with this?

Not much other than banning the IP.

banning a particular ip wont matter much ...I can change my ip address by turning the wifi off for 5 minutes and wulla, new number sequence all together..


every new member that registers must be approved by admin...me, before they can even view the boards or post... (guests can only view rules and about)


How safe are we?

its basically an invite only forum so every new member is already known. Total strangers with weird nicks wont get a toe in the door we should be sweet right?

Invite only/manual approval for registrations would prevent them from joining
