This morning when I was doing my morning rounds on the comm. forums there was 2 of those and 3 about pills. Crazy stuff, was quite a lot of spam for one morning Tongue

Anyways, do you have Akismet enabled?? I'm sure that'll be able to stop this sorta crap from being posted, this is classic spam.
No I don't mate, how can I stop this kind of sales post... doing my head in.

ALSO the can post links plugin should be stopping it. Rolleyes

Haha.. you sound like a security guard for the Mybb forums. Rolleyes Tongue

I agree with Matt, use the Akismet plug-in(link here). If that doesn't work, just keep banning them with a IP ban(Probably wont work tho).
Akismet comes with MyBB by default, just get an API key and use it Big Grin
where do you get API pirata? Smile
Wordpress.com, create an account, and eventually you'll get the option to get a blog or just a username, choose just the username (unless you want the blog Tongue) and you'll see your API key then.
How often are you getting these posts? Akismet is your bet but really this spam occurs to most sites. If you're getting a lot of them daily then you may need to make adjustments. If you are getting a few per week...then you just have to deal with it manually.

Obviously ineffective ain't it. I am not sure why people use these type of plugins..it doesn't prevent anything.
I haven't been getting any lately, hurra!
Anyway I've tried Akismet and it doesn't suit with my site, whenever someone makes a big post(like news) (and with links probably), the post gets blocked and the user might get banned according to the settings.
I can't use it unfortunately.
I have same issue...too many false positives and slows the site down too. Not a big fan of the Akismet plugin myself.
