I've gone through all the recent spam entries and deleted everything I found.

If I've missed something please tell me in this thread.

If any of you would like to help me with moderating the forum, please contact Remon

The amount of spam now is unbearable, I tried keeping up, but the flow was simply to great to remove by hand.

FI-DD might have something to do with the forum, so might Lexa

It's very old version of phpBB, it would be wise to upgrade the forum software to phpbb3. Sucks :S and it doesn't show a good picture to the outside world wondering about the CNR.

I talked with Ramon some time ago he said that he can't
make me a moderator or anything, and the only one at the
moment that can do that is FI-DD!
If we can contact him again somehow he can help us ban
those spam accounts, make some new moderators and maybe
even put on some captcha and spam protection :o

Also great work, but you have to change the Forunlogo, and let the cutenewsru.com index page be updated too!

Also spam bots know how to get around all the anti-spam image checks, even re-captcha.

Sometimes the Q&A Anti-Spam option is better, such as asking "what is two add 8 take eight?" (answer would be 2) or "what web language does CutenewsRU use?" (answer in lower case, which would be php) or "what is the three letter short term for 'Hypertext Preprocessor'?" (answer would be php).

I think he should take few minuts and read this post
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1861645
is stop this spamming, create new user group is best idea her.
[*]Newly Registered Users Group - phpBB 3.0.6 also sees the introduction of the "Newly Registered Users" group. This feature, which may be enabled via the User Registration Settings page of the ACP, allows the administrator to define a minimum post count; if a user is below this limit they will be a member of the Newly Registered Users group.
