This site has been attacked now for about two weeks by spammers. I had to midify the registration and pull a few other tricks to get it to stop. They then started rapid linking porn sites so that it would show up in the Refferes area so search engines would pick it up and raise the page ranking. I cleaned out about 500 of them but there are thousands of free proxie servers you can use. Since I cannot ban them all, I killed the refferers window. They are still hitting the site but now with no results exept in the server files.

Leave it to these guys to screw up a good thing. :roll:

I was getting atleast one, sometimes more emails a day. It's slowed down lately and I havent gotten anything in the past couple days. Maybe they'll stay away. :roll:

One thing that can help is to hide your email address. These robots can also do what is know as "email harvesting". They scan a site and record all of the emails they find and add them to spam distribution lists.

Especially if its on the main page. I have my email default set to "hide" but you can still send me email if you click on the link.

I hardley get any spam.

Now I can put filters in on the email that is used here. Forward me some of the garbage you are getting and I'll see about getting rid of it.
