Hello

Recently i enabled anonymous posting by approval for people who are still unsure about registering or don't want to be identified.

However, the recent two days i've been getting a load of obviously copypasted "link farm" posts into the approval area. It took me almost half an hour yesterday to delete them all just to see the same thing when i logged on today - loads of poker site links.

Anyone who does this be ashamed. Whatever you do on the web, be sure it's doomed.. you're like the dark side: Either learn to cooperate with the world or leave, instead of sneaking up and loading the sites with spam linking to almost literally worthless junk. Rolling Eyes

The anonymous posting will be disabled indefinitely or until i find a way to block them. Sorry guys..

Thank you for your understanding
Daniel

You can set in a capthca or whatever they're called, however they probably aren't the best defense to implement, plus including them might be a bit hard...

I totally understand, sounds reasonable. I've got no problem with it, so yeah. Smiling

The only thing about anonymous, is that if you want to contribute, then why can't you go through the thirty-second process of registering?

Because people are too lazy for their own good.
