Trust me. They will keep coming. There needs to be some kind of spam protection on here to prevent this from happening.

How about banning all users who post 4 or more links with the same root website? Here is an example:

http://www.anywebsite.com/AAAA
http://www.anywebsite.com/BBBB
http://www.anywebsite.com/CCCC
http://www.anywebsite.com/DDDD

This is just an example, but the links above (with different websites, obviously) are typical of what I have seen of spammers lately.

I would love to do all those. But I am not an adminastater. I can only get rid of spam. The admins can do other stuff, like blocking IP addys.

Hopefully soon when we get our website person up and running she said she would mod the forums too, so I want her made an admin and we will see if she can get some of this done.

Not such a great idea for auto-ban, even if it were possible to do so with this forum software (which I don't know if it is or not because I don't know how it works), because there are some legit lists of links people post :o Such as, for example, a bunch of photos of their cosplay, or photos of another congoer who made a request for photos people took of them.

Anime/manga section? Not sure how they plan to "blend in" their spam posts over there. "FREE VIAGRA!" normally sticks out like a sore thumb, but even more so in the anime/manga section.
