    no,

    spammers like these target any forum that is popular, and it's difficult if nearly impossible to stop them

    on my own forums i force the members to validate their membership via email, that cuts out a lot of spammers as they generally use false email addresses

    however some do get through, and the next step is to outright ban certain email address's

    the following is a list of banned ip/email addresses and hostnames that have attempted to spam my forums, some have succeeded some not

    fyi.

    Malcolm,

    When you receive an E Mail ( and you want to ban the sender.)

    Highlight the message, go to "Message"and click "Block Sender"

    They can also get the list of all sites from Vbulletin where they list all the legitimate Vbulletin sites or so I am informed by my son, who has some experience of adapting them for different users.

    Guys & Gals,

    I hate to say this but everytime you reply on an obviously spam post all you do it move it back to the top again (BTTT) which gives it even more publicity.

    Bugger just done it myself :eek:

    use an isp that highlights spam in the subject field.

    then use your mail program options to put anything with "spam" in the title to send the offending mail to the junk bin.
