    Spammers from INDIA will equal all of INDIA BANNED

    thats right....Im tired of spending fifteen minutes every day banning spammers from India. Im sure getting clicks on your ads will give you a nickle or two but the result of doing so will be me banning all of india from being able to visit this site.

    after tomorrow, if there is another spam from india its done.

    I love indian food. I just hate indian spam.

    SPAM with curry...yum!

    Thank you, Jason!
    Although it may be considered a "harsh" retribution, it is only when such actions are taken that the point is firmly driven home that SPAM is unwelcome, period.

    Hopefully, such steps will also be taken towards the Russian and Chinese spammers as well. If enough forum admins would adopt this stance, oh, what a wonderful virtual world this would be!

    That's like a fifth of the world's population you're banning there, isn't that a little... blunt?

    But yeah, spam is totally gh3yzor. Isn't it possible to filter out topics with Ipod, free and gift certificate whatever? Might fool bots anyways. They think they posted a topic but didn't.

    I'm fairly certain that girls form the middle east are the most attractive. They also need a btter name for their region, if there is one, I'd like to know.

    Do we have many users in here from India, liek will it be affecting anyone?

    Is there a way you make it so if someone from India wants to join, or rejoin after getting banned, you can manually let them through? Sucks you have to do this to get rid of SPAM. Maybe you could start a SPAM Forum, just for spammers to use

    Maybe the registration process is a little too easy?

    Perhaps if there was a short, easy questionare regarding the basic rules of the forum(you would choose one of a few premade answers so that the process could be automated rather that someone looking through each submission)when registering. I'd like to think this would discourage a fair amount of the spammer since they wouldn't want to bother actually reading the rules ect. Considering the current registration process only involves checking the "I have read the rules" button and making a name and password, I don't think it would be too exasperating to add a few(maybe 3-5)super easy questions-assuming you actually read the rules-to a one-time registration.

    I doubt they'll pay attention to it.

    Do we really have that many spammer from India? I'm a bit surprised.

    At one point i saw 4 posts in this forum advertising ipods and other random garbage... All from fresh accounts and such. Real annoying!

    How about we steal CGtalks/CGsocietys idea? New users posts wont appear until they're approved by a mod for atleast the first 2-5 posts. During that time they can't start new threads. Only problem is it would create alot of work for Ponte and all the Mods. Perhaps it would be easier if new users could not start new threads untill they reached 5 posts or something, that way mods don't have an extra work load.

    On the subject of Indian spam my family gets calls 3 or 4 times a day every 2nd day of the week from an Indian call centre asking if we want to change credit card companies or if we want to increase our credit limit and crap like that. This one time I actually got an Indian guy trying to impersonate an Australian accent. It was hilarious. Made him even harder to understand tho.

    Yea Jason, I've gotta say thats a bit harsh sounding. Obviously not my choice or site, but still, thats like a billion people... Not to mention any Indian users already registered on the site...

    I know the spam is annoying, but it doesnt happen horribly often, and there is almost always a mod browsing around. Is it so bad to just delete em when they pop up?

    Or you could make a few new mods for the purpose of deleting spam
