fdryer,

We're on the same page. I did that, right after I posted onto this thread.

Also tried blocking them myself, All that seems to do to the ones already present is disable the report function.

The main problem Charlie needs to fix is that the current version of the forum in use is over 8 years old and reached EoL over 3 years ago with known, easy, workarounds to the login security system. EoL = End of Life....no more updates for any reason.

I was just looking into why this site might be doing so bad and I also noticed the outated version of vbulletin. 3 and 4 have both reached EOL. Maybe charlie doesn't wan't to (or can't afford to) to pay for vbulletin 5? This website isn't even https. Even when vbulletin 3 was still in support entering a username and password over an http connection isn't usually recommended.

I'm upgrading the site to a new server in the next month, and I while I'm tinkering that's when I'll add the capability. I appreciate everyone's offer to help!!!

Thanks,

Thanks,

I hope so! I'm not here so often, in fact i'm guilty of being here only to request help, but i appreciate this forum so much! I wish every car model has such a nice and helping community. That would be a great loss if it would end for such a stupid reason.

I've been banging this drum for a while now. It's an easy upgrade too. There are lots of ways that have been suggested to quell the SPAM http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...=238630&page=2
