I honestly don't think so. You can eliminate their messages (as is being done now). I suspect you can ban their IPs, but spammers usually have multiples.

It was discussed some time ago when the board was really busy and the only real way is to take the site private -- and Toby never wanted to do that.

There was a time I felt like we were winning this battle, but it’s gotten ridiculous. Either have a screening process for new members, or give the mods the ability to ban members.

Fish, I need the day in my life back that I lost deleting and moving threads. Concust too.

I've banned some IP addresses, so will monitor that...there were a couple that were more prevalent, but still a large number of them being used so it won't stop them altogether

Thanks Fish appreciate all you guys do. I wasn't aware of the hows and whys they got on here, and now appreciate the fact its not easy on your end. Was more curious about their existence than anything.

One option I have considered is migrating to a new board code, but that would likely mean losing all the old threads

One of the big draws of OTG in the past was that it didn't put limitations on membership or members the way some others did (in the beginning, most of us were outcasts from the MSG message boards).

We delete them as soon as we see them; appreciate your patience. It's usually not too bad unless we get hit by one that bumps 50 old threads with spam... that takes a while to go through.
