How about a dedicated forum just to report these pharmacy (and other) spammers?

Here is the latest: Moryachok

how about just not auto approving membership and having a real live person review the membership application and user profile?

How about requiring that a membership application contain a valid personal e-mail account? Or some other peice of verifiable information linked to a real person?

How about it, Mods? Any possibility of doing this?

Thanks bchandler and Vigilantius for your suggestions. We appreciate your concerns. I am unsure if something like this would be possible here, but I have brought your posts to the attention of the Admins and techs of FP. I am sure if this can be an option, they will be on top of it :grin:

Spammers register on a message board, so they can put their website info in their profile. There is a very easy way to stop them, and it's by taking the website and signature out when people register. They will then be able to get in their profile. But most spammers will not take the time to do this. They just register and move on.

I have this filter on our message board, and it's working great!! :)

This is the link to the phpbb support forum, and the information you need to take these off.
