Lately there have been numerous times when spam threads are created on wrestling/general sports forums. It's annoying the say the least. I get that someone can create an account and post what and where they choose. Question, is there a better way to combat these things? I know the mods can ban these users and lock threads but are there any other tools that can be applied?

We can see if Frank can add a captcha or some kind of security feature to the registration process, Im sure that would eliminate a good portion of the spam that comes in

Fairly simple solution - after you've made a certain number of threads/posts in a certain amount of time.. security coded :p

I agree with this. Just place th captcha into the registration process an all is solved, unless an A-hole decides to do it just to f**k with us.

It would else help if somebody besides me would be on top of eliminating spam *coughSGcoughROBcough*

Pardon me, that was a nasty cough

I think your coughs have subliminal messages in them.

I do eliminate spam. Just when you eliminate spam, I am not around.

I have a life outside of this site you know >.>

If only we could come up with a captcha that trolls can't read.

I just figured it out. Make it say Cena Sucks, trolls would read it as Cena is getting another title reign.
But to radomize it just put Hogan, Hardy or some other person marks like but actually suck.
