Spam

Can we just autoban people who put "1" under motorcycles?

Or better yet, make their posts not display to anyone but them?

I was wondering that myself. It seems we have an overabundance of those particular spammers lately.

Would it be possible to make authorization required for new members before posting is allowed? I'm sure there are some of us on here who could help out with verification. I saw about 10-20 new members joining daily from the member list, so the number is not unmanageable.

It's called a Captcha. That is a good idea. It doesn't catch all of them, but it catches most.

I will pass this along to Mike. I am normally on more, but my internet at home has been spotty as of late. But I will let him know. Thanks!
