why cant we report spammers?

This is very sad to see that Lotrointerface can be invaded by spammers.

It is not the first time, and it begin to be harassing and even dangerous as they could post any trojan and virus with all their garbage.

May be you could add some security logging for the new members, be it captcha, or a register form with more info to answer, and make them wait for your approval before they can post.

I rather see this than feeling insecure and invaded

Thank you

You can report them if they haven't been reported. However they were already reported.

We use stopforumspam rbl and many different spam stopping techniques but for some reason they really like lotrointerface. We also have tools that help us quickly clean it up but its hard to do that when we are sleeping.

I'm going to go and put manual account validation in effect until this blows over.
