    Very good news indeed! This new policy should hopefully weed out the spammers.

    Glad to hear you have found a solution. It will involve a bit of work for you but hopefully it will work.

    I hope this is the last one to have gotten through before you implement your new policy. http://alt1tude.bremont.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3561

    If it doesn't work it will at least reduce the numbers down dramatically. Good work to start 2016 with. Happy New Year

    Hmmmmm…….seems to be quite a lot of Spam this morning

    Keep up the good work that both you and Jake do on the Forum Jeremy - it can't be easy - and have a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

    Best wishes

    David

    Thanks all! Glad to be able to help!!

    The visitor messages are bypassing the fix, so that's the next step to work on it appears. I may end up taking away visitor messages as I never see that function used for non-spam purposes anyway.

    *****Update #2*****

    Since we don't ever used visit messages and the spammers are still using them to post their crap, I've taken away the visitor message function.

    We need a thanks/like button so we can thank/like these kind of posts.

    This is certainly something we have (and currently are!) looking in to implementing. It'd be a nice addition for sure.
