Went with reCAPTCHA now since it's part of the software. Had to create a couple keys, but we'll see how that goes.

two ways I beat it>

1. add a question they have to answer... packer related. Remember a spammer in Russia and China has no clue who the packers QB was in 1996 nor will they look it up.

2. I screen all new registrations through stop forum spam site database Stop Forum Spam

Yeah may take a day to get them on the site but it's better then spam posts.

**** How not to stop spam. *****

The Badgermaniac board has been getting hit with spam.. so apparently they suspended any members within x amount of time forcing them to apply to post. And not getting them handled in an appropriate amount of time..

And what does this accomplish.. it probably will cause me to find a different forum to get my Badger fix. And yes.. it compromises any chance they had of getting $$$ out of me for their premium content. 247 will still get my dollars as of yet.

A little background.. I have subscribed for a couple of years to a college recruiting site.. but looking to upgrade I started to post around a bit to see if there was an improvement.. hence why I joined that site in the first place. A test so to speak.. my opinion of the site eroded very quickly with this tactic they employed.

Nutshell, whatever action you take to stop spam.. do not affect your existing members experience upon the site.

New registering users.. fine put them through the checks. Existing members that have established a posting history.. not.

Pet Peeve # 9348790293959 of mine.. lol.

or do what PackersHome wisely did ... hire Shawn and Wayne and suddenly the spammers stop in their tracts out of sheer fear of getting the can of whoop slapped down their throat.

now im done

very much so. I saw a couple of spam posts last week that I put into the spam folder. nothing in a while before or since. There are a couple of new members who I wonder about but since they have not posted anything to speak of perhaps they just want to lurk.
