    Hi all,

    I know it isn' t that easy to keep a forum SPAM- free ( especially when it has so many visitors as this one... ) , but I am an admin at 2 smaller fora, where we keep spammers out by moderating the first post of new members. If that is ok, the poster is accepted.
    Don' t know if that is possible here , but it keeps the forum clean for sure...

    Peter

    Great work. How come the "too much spam" thread is gone? I still cant upload pictures, and I tried Internet Explorer but that one could'nt access smcars at all...

    Edit: file upload works in Opera.

    what i did to get rid of spammers on my own forum was ask a simple question upon registration ...for example how many wheels does a car have?

    I would suggest "Is the engine connected to the wheels when the shifter is in neutral position?" that should keep the spambots away.

    I really appreciate your efforts to clean the forum, I think i's way better than some months ago when each forum was flooded :)
