    Well as always, every forum has spam around 9:00. All spammers should be bitten by every pokie in the world.

    I totally agree, it's just taken me 45 minutes to clear it all :(

    I wonder why they're targeting this forum so hardcore? I'm on quite a few forums, but their really loading the T forum up.

    I wish I knew. I know a lot of forums have CAPTCHAs and we don't but the numbers have gone up by 4 times in the last few months.

    Some forums put a lot of work into spam prevention, only you can't see it because it's behind the scenes.

    Can we implement CAPTCHAs? I check tapatalk every morning and get excited when I see updated from the Tarantula forum, then I see its a bunch of spam which is disappointing.

    I have asked Josh (Admin) but he's not been able to do anything.

    Hopefully he can figure something out on his end. You'd think spammers would have something better to do with their lives.

    Spam happens if you hate it,stay off the internet. There's alot worse going on in the world. Maybe you should focus on better things.

    No. There's thing called time zones. And people on the opposite side of the world have a diffenrt time. Those are the people who clear the spam. Go complain the the US Adim for being a lazy bum

    I run a bunch of Wp blogs and I keep spam from bothering visitors.

    I also used to help run another forum. I wasn't admin and most of what the admin/owner did to fight spam went over my head, but I do know that users were rarely if ever bothered by spam.

    In comparison, I set up email notification for this forum and I have to clean up my inbox every morning. I get about ten times as much spam from this forum as I do useful emails.

    So yes, spam is a problem here.

    Heaven forbid we have a civil conversation. I came to this forum to learn from experienced keepers, share my Ts, and enjoy a friendly atmosphere. Thanks for bringing a dose of hostility and side order of sarcasm. Dunno who pissed in your cheerios. The spam is annoying, I don't care about supplements, cleanses, or penile enhancement, I'm here for the tarantulas. If you have an issue with people sharing their discontent with a community nuisance, go be oppressed and stifled elsewhere. Maybe if you shared more openly, you'd be a less angry individual. It's not healthy to keep things bottled up, ask the spammers, they're all about health apparently.

    We were both guilty of that. I think we've all had bad days and snapped at one point or another. I certainly have many times. No hard feelings on my end, hopefully today is better than yesterday for ya.
