    Lots of spammers

    So over the past few weeks, we've been seeing lots more "Cheap and Authentic Jersey" type threads from spambots getting through (about 1 or more a week now). Is there anyway we can change up the security protocol for setting up a new account on CF to limit this?

    Sidenote: Why is there a 20 sec wait period for reporting stuff as spam?

    Just because you don't want cheap, high-quality jerseys doesn't mean the rest of us don't, stop ruining this for us!

    Re: Lots of spammers

    I also hate that this site sends pop-ups whenever you click forums from the homepage. It's a tacky way to make a dime on our behalf. Plus it's so 1990's.

    I heard in the future everyone has to call bos on his cell phone and tell him what they want to post and then he has to give them permission.

    Post is worthless without a phone #.

    Re: Lots of spammers

    Hey, geburgess - I did want to thank you and all of the others who report these, though. We sometimes don't see the ones that sprang up at 3 a.m. immediately when going through the posts since we were last on, so that helps us identify them quickly.
