If so, is there something we can put in the flag report or other method that makes it easier on mods so they don't have to deal with insta spam reports?

I'd just keep reporting them as usual. It's just for me and some of the other mods when we do check our email. They are all dead links, by the time we see them in the email vs logging on here and seeing them as we browse. But that don't mean that for the others they do check them and find one once and a while.

So I don't get accused of being part of the problem and not the solution, perhaps Criv or one of the sys ads can implement this type of verification:

http://ozzmodz.com/showthread.php/50...g-Spam-Is-Over

Since v 3.8.9 is almost 3 years old there possibly needs to be a better way to weed the spammers out.. It seems that captcha, tand he Q&A methods is worthless these days, and easily broken by bots.

Has there been any research into moving to VB 4.x or VB 5.x?


P.S. Know your enemy:

Yes. It's been a few years, but based on my last experience with v5.x it completely changes the look and feel of the forum, and not in a good way. James put up test sites with v5 and then v4, though they are no longer online. Discussion of that here.
