    Thumbs down I say shut it down until the porn is gone!

    This security issue is getting a little out of hand. I can't imagine how the moderators are handling this situation. Geez, every forum has some kind of garbage on it! I will just stay away until it is fixed, but I would hate to have any children exposed to some of this trash

    Is there a way to halt the system and turn them away until the security error/loop is figured out?

    I don't think shutting down the site is the answer, Unless that's the only way to get a handle on this. I have seen this kind of thing before and the perps were either peta or anti-hunting/trapping types, or political freaks. By shutting down the site these limp wrist ed pumpkin boys win. These spline less oxygen thieves really need to get out of their mom's basement and go fishing ( or a hike at least)

    No but locking out new members is an option! It will stop the issues until a better solution is available.

    My suggestion also, but I'm guessing the mods are a step ahead of us already (in the thought process)

    Default Verification queue

    I'm leaning towards turning on the verification queue option. This would require new users to be manually verified.

    The spammers want not only to post garbage, they want to post profiles with their garbage and links to more. This morning I deleted most of our banned users.

    We're going to talk about this a little more....but we're going to do something.

    Thumbs up Thanks David

    It looks like, from this end anyway, whatever you are doing is working!

    Waking up to those images did not make for the most pleasant morning of my week

    I am seeing all of this from you guys, but I am not seeing anything at all?
    Is this just on Forums or is this in the PM system?
    I purposefully keep my PMs full so that I don't have to deal with stuff that I receive inside of there.
    I have seen that some of it is on the boards...
    ...so I am with you guys, too. What am I missing? Where is this stuff showing up at?
