    You obviously need to change your flood settings for your forum script.

    Sadly.. It happens.. Clean it up and move on is all you can do at the moment


    Oh yea.. Word of advice...


    Don't ever go into a chat or forum when your new and say " Have you ever been to blabla.com?" Because it has just opened, which made them think oh hes spamming us, so they decided to spam you.

    Yes it sucks, but life isn't fair you know.

    Money is the root of all evil. So if you don't want to go crazy, give it all to me

    Looks like the title Newbie will soon be something else if you don't relax. It's not like anyone has control of people in a IRC room. Fact is you have posted that url 2 times in this thread.

    I can imagine you did that many times in the chat room, thus spamming yourself and provoking someone to act upon you and your board.

    Of course I could be wrong, wife say I am all the time.

    so wait .. you go into an IRC room and ask if anyone has ever been to xxx and you don't consider that as spamming on your end?

    IMHO you got what you asked for. you spammed a room, and someone spammed you.

    Many people get PO'ed when others say "Have you ever been to..." -- It's ALWAYS spam...

    You spammed, now you got a spammer..

    Its like an eye for an eye.

    i have a spamming problem on some things too, i just make a java thing popup when they first come to the site for the day, and have a java script prompt them to enter a certain code before being able to view the site, and that keeps bots out.

    I would also get hit ip adress and block it.

    Ah man..........

    Dont EVER give out anything where you dont trust the area!

    I keep telling this to my friends here,they always give out thier aim names and such,then complain when they get spammed.......

    DONT GIVE IT OUT and you wont be!!!!!!! Im not trying to be a prick here,im just trying to help you guys,i know some of you are in business and wanna get attention,but i think advertising your site is more than enough......Rather post your AIM name on your site,then someone just looking to spam you,wont just goto your site for nothing..........

    Just my .02 worth
