How to register on this forum - after spambot attack

Post by TonyGosling »

There's been a underhand attack behind the scenes on the forum.

An automated spam bot has been attacking the registration section of this website since 1st January 2011 when I posted my Jo Yeates murder theories.

Joanna Yeates' murder - ritual killing possible?
http://www.911forum.org.uk/board/viewto ... 264#153264

Which means it's now almost impossible to sort fake registrations from real ones.

In the meantime please register in the normal way - then email me tony@cultureshop.org.uk with ' 911 forum register' in the email subject and your username in the email somewhere, to register
As a result we are evaluating some alternatives and a move to phpbb3.

Does anybody know anybody who can put together a new front portal page for this forum that would work with phpbb3??
