Is anybody else kind of enjoying the 'can I be the first to report?' game? grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 03-Mar-13 13:07:20

Dr Who saves MNHQ from the evil spammers!! There's a two parter right there.

Tee2072 Sun 03-Mar-13 13:07:47

Isn't that Red Dwarf, Sparkling?

Tee2072 Sun 03-Mar-13 13:08:30

It does say it's TARDIS, but it looks like the computer from Red Dwarf on the console!

Baby Names is drowning in it.

Tee2072 Sun 03-Mar-13 13:11:06

Poor MNHQ, I do feel sorry for all the work they're giving you. wine

FancyPuffin Sun 03-Mar-13 13:20:30

MNHQ I know you are working like beasts trying to sort out the spamming.

Just one idea in the past you have suspended all new registrations for a few days when we have been invaded.

Would that help?

[gin] wine thanks

HalfSpamHalfBrisket Sun 03-Mar-13 13:23:06

Oy Sparkling
Nowt wrong with the name Spam! grin

BoneyBackJefferson Sun 03-Mar-13 13:25:41

MNHQ

Couldn't you just turn off new registrations for a while?

Tee2072 Sun 03-Mar-13 13:39:24

Turning off new reg has been suggested and I'm sure they have thought of it as well.

RustyBear Sun 03-Mar-13 13:44:56

Apparently the best way to stop spambots is to require a question at registration - advice "to use a question that is unique to your forum, avoid using common knowledge like "what is 1 + 1". Eg a boating forum asked questions about boat terminology, like, which side is port?

Wonder what questions MNHQ could come up with....

That previous picture is the inside of the sex shed.

Tee2072 Sun 03-Mar-13 13:56:27

I do not know what kind of sex you have LR...

Rusty If you go to the market, what kind of ham should you buy?

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Sun 03-Mar-13 13:58:08
