That's nice. I think that no one would like another spam of that size... ;)

What I meant was, I don't think they will stop anytime soon. So I'm not holding my breath until they stop, because I expect to suffocate first.

Ok, after a day of deleting spam I would like to recommend again the introduction of a captcha or manual approval solution. Deleting users would be another way, even though that's a power we do not need. Plus it's less effective.

It never stopped. I have deleted about 30 spam posts over the course of the day...

Probably getting close to 40 by now...

I deleted about 15 (12hours ago)
And...
I'm already tired,
Tough the capcha doesn't like, I think we should put the captcha only for posting a topic, not a reply, this way, even if they keep posting, it'll be really easy to delete
What do you think?

Captcha would be for the registration of users. Lets just delete the spam accounts and then with captchas it should be harder for them to create new accounts.

I like ideas of both of you, as they only make new topics, making it need special "key" will make them unable to do anything. :P

I tried to register a new account and there seems to be a captcha already. Somehow they got around it anyways :(. I can't find the setting to review all posts by new users in the control panel. It is really complicated to navigate :/
