    Noticed on the sign-up popup now it's necessary to type two random words so that should slow down the automated computer spammers.

    Just went to new posts....first one was spam...everything was intelligible, content, title, subject, all in well spelled English. Location was even a legit word, dunno if it was correct. I reported it. Anyway, stuff is still getting past the filters, but let's hope it is reduced.

    I try to help the forum by reporting spam, the reporting process sure is slow though. I wish there were a way to streamline that.

    No, we're not contrbuting to spam...just reporting it and bringing a problem up to TBN management.
    Spam hits every online forum...not just TBN. It wastes bandwidth (bandwidth costs money) and irritates the members (me, for example).
    One cannot expect the management or mods to see it all...unless we report it.
    There have some good ideas on these anti-spam threads to reduce spam. One was the report button changing color after being reported (so the mods don't get multiple reports for the same thread). Another is the use of random characters to prevent the automated spambots from creating "memberships").

    Sounds to me like you resent the fact that TBN might be profitable. It costs us nothing to join or post for that matter so why should it even matter that the site makes money. If it didn't make money you would be asked to dip into your pocket to support it. Make sense?

    No sir, quite the opposite. I was simply pointing out that "senior" members didn't earn the right to judge junior posters... Hence the lynch mob comment. That is a function of the owner or mods. If spam is a problem, they should deal with it.
