    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.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    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.
