Sorting out vBulletin Spam

Over the last few months, I’ve been battling spam on a forum I own. Tried everything from captcha, require new users to validate their emails and I still got loads of spam.

I headed over to vBulletin.org to find a good plugin and found this. It uses your Akismet API key to filter certain usergroups posts. Akismet has worked really well on this (Akismet has caught 23,837 spam for me since I first installed it.) and a few other blogs that I own so i thought i’d check it out.

Hopefully this will be the end of spam 🙂
