Forum Spam
« on: May 23, 2012, 09:44:28 AM »
Due to the forums Google ranking ( PR 6 ) we are attracting many spammers who are trying to flood the forum with links to their sites. Fortunately spam bots like "Xrumer" don't work on this forum as we have anti spam measures in embedded in the registration process which means a HUMAN BEING has to manually register an account.

To counter these actions and put off spammers we have implemented a " No Follow " link rule that deems any outgoing links from the forum useless for their page ranking.

As we are a non profit, non commercial forum this will have no negative effect on members posts.

Happy posting  :)
