Question to weed out spammers...?
« on: December 04, 2016, 08:13:47 am »

There's been some noise here lately. Would it be possible to make all new posters answer one or two simple mandatory questions to keep the spammers from posting?

I'm thinking along the lines of "What do you call the most common connector plug for balanced audio signals (also used for DMX)?" Most people about to post in these forums would know it is XLR, but it is enough of a hassle to google it that most spammers/bots would simply move on to the next forum.

I am a moderator at another popular forum and what we do to screen out spammers is ask them to make a nominal contribution via paypal to the forum.

Just like junk mailers don't believe in paying postage, spammers will not pay even a dollah to spam you. Paypal gives you a valid email address to contact them.

You are welcome...
