Right but can you ban usernames ?

Of course, but its meaningless to do so, since repeats effectively never happen.

Maybe there could be a quick quiz before a person's application is accepted. It could have 10 randomly picked questions about flight, and to become a member, you must score 7 out of 10 for instance. This may stop spammers becoming members easliy.

The thing here is, some of the people asking for help may not know much about aviation, so the questions would essentially stop them from getting help.

It would be far easier to simply require approval by an administrator rather than do this.

But would the admistrators wnat to do this though. It is time consuming. There could be 15 or so simple aviation questions like, name an American airline. This may dissuade spammers from signing up as it would take too long to go through the simple quiz. Real members wouldn't mind doing this.

Creating this quiz and having it come up along with the sign up information is not possible with the message boards style we use. In order to do this, the Administrators would not only have to make the quiz, they would also have to send it to each applying person, then check it, then approve the account anyway.

I see your point. Perhaps there is already something like this that simairline could team up with.

Hi there,

It's a long time since I wrote here, but today I got spam from the board which was sent as a private message. To my regret, I can't retrieve the message anymore, so I don't know which user sent it.

Anyway, this is just to let you know that there is or was another spammer hiding here.

cheers,

Enno

Subject: How to find bargains at Amazons Secret Web Pages Quote message
I’ve got an Amazon gift certificate burning holes in my pocket,
and I want to get the most bang for my buck.

Enter the Secret Amazon Web Pages:

http://bargains-hunter.blogspot.com/200 ... ecret.html
Amazon Secret Web Pages

This is where you’re going to find the "latest sales, rebates, and limited-time offers" from
Amazon, and you can score some pretty deep discounts if you’re a savvy shopper.

Next, there’s the special Sale link. This is open every Friday, and ONLY on Fridays.

You can find the same good discounts here as you would in hidden Deals, although some
Fridays you can really get lucky and make off like an Amazon bandit - I’ve seen discounts
there as low as 75% off sticker price.

I notice that this person, Greedywrado, was online for several hours during the time I got this message. SPAM is really heating up at present, if you don't say so yourselves.

Funny thing is, that the site does not look like the usual scam, like getting rich, enlarging private parts, or anything like that. I see no popups, no large amounts of ads, nothing.

Weird.

Hmm, that's unfortunate. Sorry guys but I honestly have no idea what to tell you other than just delete them. To my knowledge (at least as a moderator) there's nothing we can do about that.

What about email verification or something? I signed up when this board was rather new, so I don't remember what the process is, but all this spam is an absolute joke. I don't see this kind of stuff on forums that require email validation. Does this board have it?
