Default Quick, ban the newest spammers, please

Pete or moderators,

In less than 24 hrs since yesterday's cleanout, 47 more spams have been made (all reported). 46 of them seem to be from the same source (url) & the same pattern of quantity & placing in the topics, although 2 different registration names(EvepeLotdeept & exceneigh) & locations (on the other side of the world). And then we have the one oddball, boxxybabetu (also on the other side of the pond). This replenishment of spams this quickly just demonstrates the need for some kind of firewall or other registration block that will prevent the spammers from getting in here in the first place. I suggest again that somebody contact Swanny (who has volunteered to help us) to get some of his ideas & advice. It also illustrates the need for a moderator to look in here & at the spam log every couple of days to try to keep things under control if you're not going to try to prevent their entry in the first place. Here's wishing that one of you will read this & act quickly to delete & ban these 3 new spammers.

To Pete or any moderators,

Since my previous post there are now 239 spams in this site---all from foreigners except for one (183 of which just came in this morning within a couple of hours). Four of the spammers just registered today & one has made 112 spam posts this morning all by himself. The other 3 today have made : 38 by one, 23 by another, & 10 by the last one. This just goes to demonstrate the need to close the back door & lock it by doing some better kind of registration process and/or firewall block to lock them down immediately or prevent them from getting in here in the first place. I wonder what tips & advice it is that Swanny wants to share with Pete to make this site as spam-free as Swanny's are. If something isn't going to be done, then Pete might just as well shut this all down (I DON'T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN), because no present member or new member will be able to maneuver through all this garbage to get any useful help or information.
