    New SPAM Controls

    Due to several recent SPAM attempts on our forum we were forced to remove the unregistered guest option for posting on the forum. You now must register for a free account to post. We feel this will enhance all users experience using the NHTG forum and help fight off SPAM.

    Re: New SPAM Controls

    We have been able to control most spam on this forum in the past 6 months. We do have a few users that feel they are entitled to post their ads on our forum without compensation to the site owner. We are dealing with these cases one on one since there are only a few that lack knowledge of common courtesy.

    Most posts are just being deleted and the user's account banned. But for repeat offenders, they can expect us to use a feature on this forum that replaces words used in their ads with words of our choice. Because we do not want to limit the freedom of all users to use almost all words we are forced to change brand names into words that are far less than desirable for a company that chooses to use our forum for their unpaid ads/spam. This was put to the test this morning by a company who very quickly learned that we have stepped up our efforts to eliminate spam from our forum.
