    Actually, over the last 100 posts, you can only see 12 of them in the tech forum as of the time this was posted. The other 88 are spam, but you can't see them. When you see one or two spam posts, you're seeing about 2% of the spam that actually occurs. The moderators and admins all have day jobs.

    It's getting better. At first, it was 12 out of 200. As more people find the forum, and as the filter database gets bigger, you will probably see a lot less. The site has only been up a few months since everybody had a zero post count.

    Spammers suck. Guess that's why we have to have 2 posts or more to post links/images now. And since my posts got wiped out when they changed the board over I'm gonna post a couple here so I can post some pics I need to post in the technical forum.

    I'm a super mod on another site... We use an older version of VBulletin and it gets hammered by spammers. What a big hassel!

    There are a few things and tools that have helped us out a bunch!! If an admin or mod from here contacts me I can pass along those tools (sounds like I might not be able to post them here anyway! Ha!).
    '06 Ram Cummins 3500 4x4 with all but 4 options. It has a few added on goodies and everything is 'Mega' sized!
    '73 1210 Travellete Cab: 392 is out of there and the Cummins 12V is lowering in there as you read this (I hope!)
    '76 Scout needing some work so it can be on the road also!

    Default Spam Tools

    This weekend we had 400 spam messages and 3 of them got through the filter. If you have experience with a vbulletin plugin that adds security send me the name of it and we will install it.

    Thanks!

    i know people have day jobs but if you get a few hours get on top of east post thread, delete the spammers and note down who is spamming. you can weithe remail tehm to say STOP it or delete their profile.

    its the long boring way but its not taking things to chance adn then afterwards look into a better filter
