    hopefully something will be done pretty soon by the adm,

    It is indeed sad that we have more spam posts than from regular members,
    and all we can do is delete the posts, taking no corrective measures.
    I would tend to think we are more focused than seeing just day to day spam posts.
    With the number of mods available it is possible to vet new members, and not
    letting spam overide us.
    It hasnt overwhelmed the mods, but its not something to be proud of, for the english section is almost becoming or already is a spam post section.
    On 25 threads on a page 15 are spam and 10 are normal posts!
    Why dont we think ahead and heed advise to curb spam before spam curbs us?

    A lot of the spam originates in poland and China.

    I simply traced all the main telcos and blocked them all and bam, no more spamming on my forum.
    If Evolution works, why so many idiots?

    pretty easy actually to stop bots. one is to install captchas. the other is to install anti-spam bot modifications to the vbulletin - Stop the Registration Bots google for that.
