    Just like I did this morning when I found it in one of Gypsy's old threads.. It was gone soon after reporting it. No big deal. Hit the little triangle with the exclamation point that appears at the bottom left of each post.

    Just hit the triangle on the left and report it, one of us will see the post it generates and respond to it fairly quickly.....

    I tried that a couple weeks ago, the post stayed up for over 3 hours AFTER reporting. That was the ad to put the "lead" back in one's "pencil."

    Figured adding my 2 cents worth would attract attention. It did, spam gone.
    Know your homophones (as opposed to homophobes like me)! Know which ones to use ... and their meaning:

    "Know" is related to knowledge, while "No" is a negative response.

    "There" is a location, while "Their" shows possession and "They're" is the contraction of "They are".

    "Which" specifies an item from a set but a "Witch" casts spells and wears a pointy black hat.

    "Patients" (people receiving medical care) must show "patience" (tolerate delay).

    I'm just glad that we have real mods here who will remove spam and spammers. 3 hours isn't really very long. I am a member on another forum that can takes weeks to remove spam, if they get around to deleting it at all. This is with many members reporting the posts. It's really frustrating to see spam in your favorite threads and nobody has the power or will to remove it.

    Over 3 hours? ROFLMBO, we are not sitting by watching the "Post Reports" board waiting for a post to pop up.... There are times when I can get on durring the day and times I can't and I am sure it is the same with others.

    Durring the day when I can get on it is via my smart phone, but I do work full time, have a beautiful wife who needs my time, 2 parrots who also need my time, and a sweet new Miata that sits in the driveway just waiting for me to come home, put the top down and take it out for a topless spin....

    That's great, but the point of my post wasn't REPAIR. It was PREVENTION. The difference between the two ideas is vast.

    There is a company (can't recall the name) that has a bot they guarantee can flood a forum. It works.

    It can't beat Nucaptcha. I built a similar program for my sites that have COMPLETELY stopped bots spamming my "Contact Us" forms.

    Here is a bit of info about Nucaptcha:



    I know that it works because I've seen it flat stop spam on a friend's forum. It takes a human to solve the captcha, a bot cannot do it yet.

    Chadeaux, thatwas an interesting video and I ha no idea what nucaptcha was before looking at the video. Yup, too lazy to google it too

    With that being said, how long will it take some programmer to outwit that too Everything man makes at some point will be defeated and it's a never ending cycle.

    Well thanks for the insult. No, it is professional courtesy. Two mods here now know there is a WORKING SOLUTION to the spam problem. Maybe someone will actually mention it to the boss.

    Perhaps we should keep doing what doesn't work and expecting different results?

    I thought mentioning my buddy would get certain ones to join in. Well nothing to see here, keep moving.


    @diggumup: Not exactly. I don't profit in any way, but you don't get to look at the ads to help you grow your pee pee on the forum.

    The idea is that someone has been proactive. They have attacked the problem in a way that works --- but they haven't stopped there.

    The problem for bots is that the copy is constantly moving against a graphic. The string can be 3 or more letters and/or numbers long. The captcha changes with every attempt so brute force won't work either.

    With standard captcha, nothing moves. I have "captured" over 100 captchas on my computer, ran them through my OCR software, and about 50% were solved correctly down to the letter case.

    A bot takes a "snapshot". When it does, the actual captcha may not even be on the screen with Nucaptcha.

    I took a cue from the program, and created a single flash file with 4 moving numbers that never change. That was about a year ago. I have gone from about a dozen "Contact Us" forms from spammers every day to zero in the last 6 months. I gave the file to a friend who does website design, he is having the same result for about 6 months now. We're talking about commercial sites not getting their inboxes flooded with spam from their own web sites.

    Here is the file in use on one of my friend's sites: Contact Us (scroll to the bottom of the form and look for the punkins)

    If it works with a captcha that never changes, should be much better if it does.

    I always thought of it this way: Would I rather chase down 20 problems or 2 problems? Sothink went from over 100 spam posts every day to about 20 per week.

    I would have thought that anything that makes a job easier and allows one to concentrate on the more important things might interest folks. On the other hand, if chasing down spammers and deleting them makes your day . . .
