More 'bots?

We seem to be having another spambot incursion; and once again they seem to travel in packs. Any idea why? Anything we can do to keep them out this time? Or should we just hand the mods some shotguns and let them go 'bot-huntin'?



Of course, there's always this method for keeping them out...

Re: More 'bots?

A footie forum that I used had a major problem with spambots.This was fixed by putting any first post that contained a link into pre moderation.Of course you would still have to ban the bots but it does save the board from being over run by the buggers

Another web forum I post on, that uses the same software, requires several posts, before you are allowed to post a link. That would stop the spambots automatically, if it could be done here.
