    We are infected with spammers, we need a capchca system, someone should install it, so if this website does pick back up, it will stay clean!

    We do have a captcha system I believe...I'll look into something better soon.

    If you are taking care of the posts, please make sure to ban the users too.

    I am not sure how, I have never done it, I deleted all of their copies of the post, but I didn't know how to ban them (plus I was in a hurry)

    they are most definatly bots, but I guess a Human could have signed them up manually.

    Spammers have been banned by e-mail and IP. All posts/users have been deleted. I apologize to legitimate users, but all e-mails using russian/czech domains have been permanently banned from these forums. 90% of all our spam originated from those e-mail domains and therefore are blocked.

    Many users awaiting activation have also been banned/deleted for using very obvious spam e-mail accounts. You were just going to spam anyway, so why wait for you to activate your account...
