Thanks for some explaination of the recurring problems and I can sympathise where practical to do so.
I own and operate a vert successful N54 Forum and obviously am a 'Premium' account holder so pay to keep the junk off and I'm happy with that. My forum is also MEMBERS SIGNED ONLY access.
However there are somethings that some of us out here in LA LA land do not understand, in my case 'DDOS/DOS' attacks so would someone please explain in simple terms !!. I spent a considerable period of time in the wonderful world of electronics during my early days of employment way before the whackee world of the INTERNET was what is is today ..... the problem is, as I see it, that so many of the illiterate spammers originate in the USA and only a few years ago, I'm sure I'm correct, the US federal government outlawed spamming and it did die down considerably but seems to be gaining strength yet again.
Surely one positive way and method of stopping spam unless carried by a traceable computer address detail, the 16 digit number, would / must be to stop / prevent the use of 'PROXY' virtually untraceable servers. Yes that would be difficult in places such as Russia and China But even they find a way to stop INTERNET ACCESS in their own countries so why can't we find a way to stop use of 'proxy servers'by SPAMMERS ??..
