Quote from: Kindred on June 28, 2011, 08:33:10 AMthe mods that we suggest for general spam prevention depend on third party interfaces with third part signup, etc. We don't distribute things like that with the core forum product...
Quote from: MacGig on June 28, 2011, 08:29:02 AMid like to see smf incorporate more anti spam/bot measures into smf itself. not everyone feels comfortable editing files and adding mods. it would be nice to have more security features built in, ready to go when smf is downloaded. just a thought.
Quote from: george54 on June 01, 2011, 08:13:49 PMI tried these two simple approaches to stop unwanted spam on my site: robots.txt-> disallowdisabled landing page registration. Seems to have worked for the hour. (now over 24 hours, looking good)Have banned bad IPs in the past, but the bad actors are always getting new IPs.

I realize this requires effort on your part but, a 100% track record and a community which has enjoyed years of spam-free use of the forum and site is well worth it... to me, at least.
