Default Spammers

A few weeks ago the site was hit by some spammers who posted 4000+ post in a matter of minutes. Their bots did a number on the forums and Ive had to redo quite a few things in order to remove all the junk they created.

In the process I rearanged some forums eliminating those that weren't getting much discussion. I also changed the bowling centers forum - you now will add a prefix for the state and all the post will be in the same forum.

Hopefully the measures I put in place will head these idiots off in the future.

Ok, I think I have totally cleaned house ... if anyone happens to see one get through the traps let me know.

As a heads up I also have disabled signatures until a user has 10 post on the forums.

Talking I don't know about 4000 threads once again

Kingpin,I'll reinerate on something,(LMAO). I couldn't never post 4000 threads but I somebody who could eat 4000 threads or probably eat 4000 cheeseburgers and when word of this post gets back to him, he won't be very happy but he won't do anything to me physically, because he values his life and I don't care too much for him. Jimmy Van Beber could eat 4000 threads or 4000 cheeseburgers for that matter. LMAO LOL LOL HA HA
HEE HEE HEE!!!!
