Post *@gmail.com accounts banned
Due to the high amounts of Porn Spam we are getting from *@gmail.com accounts I am banning this site.

Sorry for any issues that this may cause.

Sucks for all those people who use gmail.

Spammers are still going to get through though.

There are other seucurity measures that could be put in place though. I know there are add-ons for phpBB that allow you to set up rules.

Like no one with less than 10 posts are allowed to post pictures or hyper links.

I am not sure what will happen.

All I know is that Gmail must not have protection against these people and I am tired of removing them daily.

We will see what happens… this maybe only temporally.

I have not heard anything negative from BbB about Gmail being Banned...yet!

I do know that at lest three other people, (see their posts above) that visit these boards can still post…. Woot ! !! !

At worst case if there is only one or two BbB that are affected by this change then they can make another E-mail address using a different provider and I can help with that change.

As long as the benefits of this change outweigh the negatives it will stay.



Also I checked on the some people that have posts in late 2007 and 2008.

This change does not affect the below:


Code:
Fuiri
Narco
Truwind
Ilfar_Silverthorns
KillynTyme
Wolfmir
Roks
Trammer
Soopachicken
Phlux
Erendalia
Lighttemp
Fastlane
Clo
Impunity
Sinjynn
Kehoe
Angelicx
Rando
boadit
Lodi
darkphetus
Ardentfrost
Boady
Sylvix
Lionair
Airmoros
Nighthawke



If you know of someone not listed that posts on the boards and you are concerned about them.. Please list their name and I will check to see if this change will effect them… Thanks

Was that a joke? I was still fucking deleting porn spam almost every single day... I just stopped taking time to get the IP's as it seemed to go nowhere.. Thespam would change IP's almost every single post anyway.
