    It seems daily i have either reported a spambot user for posting adds as a status or by posts , and its always the muscle enhancers n shit like that , does GBAtemp use the default xenforo security features or does it use enhanced addons,,,

    by all acounts this : TPU: Detect and Block Spam Registrations is pretty effective and has good reviews , maybe if something like this is used that maybe it needs a little tweaking to cater for this wave of daily spam....

    We're aware of the problem and will work to resolve it. Thanks for the suggestion of TPU though!
