    Excessive spam bot accounts

    While I haven't got a clue about forum administration, security and whatnot, I do know that this forum seems to be a target for excessive spam bots.

    It's annoying to select new posts and find 3 pages of threads, of which there are, perhaps 4 actual posts related to Planet Toulan, and the remaining are threads advertising generic drugs or something similar. While I have been reporting spam bots as I see them, it seems as if the problem is getting worse, rather than better.

    While I realize that both the planet and the forum are new, perhaps inviting several of the trusted EU community to assist in forum administration could help to alleviate this problem, or just add more forum administrators from those trusted by Toulan staff.

    I know spam bots will never be fully eliminated, but if there is nothing done to curtail their activities on this forum, the problem will only get far worse before it gets better.

    Another thread regarding this has been started here by Afroman as well.

    Seriously if Jason Peterson is not up to the task of keeping this forum clean from spam, maybe you guys need to find another person to do the work. Or maybe he has a double agenda and is this a nice way to get the people from here to his own forum ??
