OK, lets see how digestible you guys find this.
- First it looks like humans may be registering, instead of bots, to bypass the Q+A captcha.
- The updated version of PHPBB3 is more secure, as it plugs holes that would allow an attack on the server itself.
- From now, any new registrations will be in the 'Newly Registered Users' group and any posts by them will need moderator approval.
- The extension 'Stop Forum Spam' has been installed, which is *SUPPOSED* to query an online database for any spam/IP addresses/Registrations that are known spam. It has a sensitivity level that can be adjusted. It *Might* cause some false positives, let's roll with it for a day or two.
