Title: Spam / Mass Ban
Post by: Callum603 on March 14, 2021, 06:03:09 pm
Just a quick notice.

I have reimplemented our spam protection form the older version of our forum, so I'm hoping that will stop most if not all all the spam posts popping up by stopping any spam accounts from even being able to register.

As the protection from this hasn't been functioning as well as we'd like for a while, I have gone ahead and review every account registration since the forum upgrade, over 100 accounts have been banned as they were flagged as spam by our external spam database.

If you or someone you know has been banned as a result of this, please ask them / email technical[at]last-outpost[dot]net from the email address used to register the account and let us know.  All accounts banned as a result of this have the ban reason as 'Spam Bot', if the reason is stated as anything else please follow the standard ban appeal procedure.

Thanks,
