Topic: How do you stop spammers from other countries?
Today was a big day for the board, we have officially hit the world stage.
I had to delete 41 registrations today and a number of spam messages on the board from foreign IP addresses.
So I implemented a very simple fix and within moments the registrations stopped.
How did I do this incredible feat of engineering you ask?
I made two security questions, answer one wrong and the other one comes up.
1. What province starts and ends with the letter "A" ?
2. What province starts and ends with the letter "O" ?
I had to think a little bit ouside of the box and come up with questions that typical Canadians could answer but most foreigners could not.
Now lets just hope they do not discover google
It stopped the bots or spammers cold in their tracks.
PLEASE DO NOT POST THE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS
