I told you don't ban by ip because it could be an internet café, a hotel, a hostel, an airbnb, coffee shop, restaurant, library, airport, etc. then a legitimate member can not access the forum as happened to me on one occasion.

Look if you ban by ip they can just use a VPN. Real dumb to ban an ip address.

What other choice do I have? Some spammers are posting hundreds of posts with some program. The only way to stop them is to block their IP. What other choice is there?

Don't you have it set up so that you have to approve any new members first five posts? You could make a rule that any new member has to make a meaningful introduction and that they have to answer other members questions before they are "approved". This would thwart most of your spammers.

If you block their IP they will show up with another IP. If you cannot interrupt them otherwise, OK, block the IP but only for a week or so.
There are so many kind of spammers, you cannot really block them all. Hopeless.

The most important thing you have to do as an admin or mod is to control your forum DAILY at least one time - and to remove any kind of spam quickly. Sometimes I get the feeling HA-moderators are only showing up once a week or so and this is by far too long.

This is ridiculous. The latest100 page is being allowed to be defaced by spammers for days on end. In addition to the more obvious spammers, this guy appears to be a spammer:

memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=30226 ... 5823d0531b
I vote we make Cornfed a moderator because he's right on top of this. He's here all the time anyway can could effectively manage this.

OK so there are of course more spammers. Why can't something be done about this?

Yes but it's 3 posts that have to be approved. Not 5. Some people don't want to make an introduction. That's not gonna make a difference anyway. The spammers will still submit their posts. You won't see them of course unless you go to the Latest 100 topics page. Remember? I can't control that. Some guys here go to that page and see the spam in the moderation queue and complain. Not much I can do about that.

They can just go to the Active Topics page if they don't like that.

Something is being done about it. I'm removing them. But not everyday. I don't know how people get everything done everyday. There's too much to keep up with. There's an endless amount of things to do online. I can only get a fraction done everyday. I have no idea how others manage.

When I had an employer, I got everything done everyday usually. Office work is not that hard to get done or keep up with. It's not an infinity like the internet.

Also before the internet I always had plenty of extra time for reading and daydreaming everyday and no one to talk to. See here:
