Sorry for thread necro but it took me like 20 guesses to be able to register an account because I was just googling it and I wasn't sure what type of answer was being requested. It's been quite a while since I've read LOTR.

I was having big forum spam problems on a board that I maintain, and I ended up installing Anti-Spam ACP with Stop Forum Spam integration. It works well for me.

Judging by our newest member, one Bella35035, Spamming is still an issue.
Unless Bella is a keen angbander who just happens to feel *really* strongly about removing asbestos, in which case, my apologies to you Bella!

And now, from our latest new member sseyysey77, I have been made aware of the most effective insurance company in Mexico. Which is handy.

Dear Arrkhal,

Someone has tried to log into your account on Angband Forums with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.

The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 188.143.232.144

All the best,
Angband Forums

--------------

Looks like they're still trying. I looked up the IP, and it's one that does this on forums a lot.

Well, you could try the abuse contact of the ISP and see if it helps. Maybe its also in their interest:

% This is the RIPE Database query service.
% The objects are in RPSL format.
%
% The RIPE Database is subject to Terms and Conditions.
% See http://www.ripe.net/db/support/db-terms-conditions.pdf

% Note: this output has been filtered.
% To receive output for a database update, use the "-B" flag.

% Information related to '188.143.232.0 - 188.143.232.255'

% Abuse contact for '188.143.232.0 - 188.143.232.255' is 'abuse@pinspb.ru'

An other way would be to disable the host because it seems unique. Maybe just someone using the same nick in other forums and forgot his real nick here? But then you should have received some password reset requests.
