Have you ever had any problems with spambots on your Forumotion forum?

Post by Rukiafan on May 15th 2012, 8:14 pm

I have only had one spambot that I quickly took care of since I created my forum in late April last year, so I'm quite pleased with the measures Forumotion has taken to prevent spam, but what about you guys? Have any of you had issues with spammers on your forum?

Nope, once we had a swarm of haters though, since our site is based on something from another site. It's hard to explain.

A spambot is an automated computer program designed to assist in the sending of spam. Spambots usually create fake accounts and send spam using them, although it would be obvious that a spambot is sending it. Some spambots, however, can crack passwords and send spam using other people's accounts.
