I just saw link to this on another forum: http://akismet.com/ Not sure if that’s what you’ve been looking for or not. I have no idea of costs, effectiveness, or alternatives, but thought it might help. With several mods keeping an eye on things, it hasn’t been nearly as bad as last year, when whoever logged on first on weekends was sometimes met with 200+ spam messages! In the past month I’ve probably only deleted 4-6.

Thanks for the link. Yea, we added a bunch of safe guards in the last year that seemed to be pretty effective. It was pretty awful for a while, though. I’ll take look at it and pass it along to IT.

Thanks again Smile
