With the increasing amount of spammers i'd like to ask you, the users, to report and post that spams a certain website, product, etc so we can take care of this...
These spammers are most likely all manual registrations, so bot protection doesn't help and they are all from China or Taiwan (95% of them).

So please report any post that fits the "spam" criterium, to report a post click on the Triangle like this one: Image
The top one is when you do not hover over it, the bottom one is when you hover over the image.

So you're outsourcing the work to the community instead of installing better spam protection and being done with it? Too bad SF.net doesn't allow Akismet.

Although, it MIGHT work if the forums are installed in the persistent directory, or somewhere with similar permissions, but last I checked you can't open sockets on SF.net's web hosting servers.

This forum isn't hosted on SF.net ... maybe that's why your post is being ignored? :)

Er, don't you commit forum code to the SVN? Or was it moved recently?
