Some minutes ago I got a http failure message like "http://www.commodore128.org/" does not exists.I have had more luck after a restart of the browser now. Are you sure you only block known spam bots from Germany?Regards WTE
I don't know where the problems exists here with spammers.
I do not think that blocking more than the half of all German users (1&1internet DE, Deutsche Telekom AG, NetDirekt and Schlund & Partners) is a really good idea.Isn't there any captcha function with the registration form?Regards WTE
Under our law, I am responsible (legally) for any content posted here as a "common carrier" - now I can happily unblock everything, let the link spammers in and say to hell with the consequences or I can protect the site, my members and myself as much as possible.I opt for the latter!cheers,Lance
I'm really pissed off! I've tried it with three dynamic IPs of my provider (telekom, the biggest one in Germany):188.8.131.52184.108.40.206220.127.116.11All have been blocked by your " anti spam measures". You understand the concept of dynamic IPs?Today, I'm here via a very slow anonym proxy but I will never return unless you solve this "lock out whole Germany problem".Regards WTE
I've also made it quite clear in this thread why I'm not budging from this stance. And part of that is that this site is hosted here in Australia and I (not the contributors) am solely responsible under our laws for content on the site.
CAPTCHA is incredibly easy to defeat - and if you bump it to its maximum setting (which will defeat most bots), it makes it nearly impossible for real people.
