It's a real pain - it seems to be a bit worse since I moved hosts. I am thinking about changing $2 to enable posting for new members - most people use the forum to buy or sell so I don't think a few dollars is too bad.

What do you think?

Anything is worth a try to stop the robotic spamming. Don't know if a $2 fee would be conducive to board activity though...maybe just use a captcha challenge before the post can be submitted perhaps?

There is always google captcha. It is a bit more robust than the existing captcha. My offer to help out still stands.

This spammer is crazy. I’m. Not sure how to get rid of it. But it’s a must. Also. Any ideas on how to make this forum a bit more active? Maybe we need some advertisement. Like on Craigslist or something
