Are you using anything on your forum to fight back against content-scraper and spam bots? I started revamping my website last weekend, and I installed SMF. I have already been targeted twice by internetserviceteam.com (I was spammed once). I ended up banning anything from hostnames *.internetserviceteam.com and *.de, and I installed honeypot bot traps (don't know how successful these measures will be). I was just wondering if you are doing anything special here, or if anyone else has some tips for blocking the bots.
I think after darkfrog switched to the hardest captcha mode the spam pretty much stopped…
thats the spam thread:
Hey, thanks for the great suggestion (I didn't realize I could make the captcha stronger). I've set to the highest mode now.
