    Spam Bots

    Seems to be a flaw in the timing when bots can create new threads faster than we can report them ............................

    Agree. Site spam protection is not the best.

    Perhaps a simple change would at least help.

    All new accounts can only post in Newbies Lounge until they reach 10 posts.

    ^That's a really good idea, but I'd make it 20. Green coming once I reload.

    What's with the attraction to Slaps threads for bots ?

    Think the attraction is the forum rather than slaps threads, ie living in Thailand.

    I also think 20 is reasonable. A person wishing to join the community can soon knock out 20 posts.

    Five posts is enough to deter spammers and would cause less inconvenience to newbies
