It seems AO is vulnerable to spam since the upgrade..
I saw another one yesterday about mobile phones but I cannot seem to find it anymore.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Hi there Sir Dice,
Yes, we are more vulnerable at present. Basically the spammer does not have to confirm their membership application. That step tended to put most of them off, or cause the spam to vanish into the ethernet
We are looking at it I believe but at the moment the Mods and Admins are just deleting them.

Yeah, they do ni. That's taken care of. 1 thing you will see is more spam, however. This version of vbulletin is MUCH more search engine friendly. As the ranking increases, you not only get more members, but more spammers. The other shoe.
