    Hi Mods,

    I'm sure you've seen all the recent posts regarding fake documents for sale (since you've probably been removing them!).

    It's been a long time since I signed up here so I can't remember, but is there some sort of anti-bot verification at time of account creation? If not, then I am making that suggestion. :smile:

    We appreciate the opportunity to address this.

    We utilize a number of layered measures to try to prevent spam on the forum, including account verification. As with any automated system, there is a trade off between false positives and false negatives. We try to let as many legitimate registrations/posts through while blocking the vast majority of spam registrations. That said, human spammers will be able to circumvent some systems designed to detect spammers.

    Yesterday we instituted additional measures to limit the ability of spammers to post on the site. We'll continue to monitor the situation and make changes as necessary.

    Thank you again for your feedback.
