I think you should confirm members before letting them post. That might get rid of the spammers a little easier ..

we do that for the most part johnny, but we also have some filters that allow certain posts to get through without having to get a mod to approve the post

those filters work pretty good, a few do get through though and I know it's annoying but you should see what does not get through

No, you can't. That is a top secret setup to keep people from getting through it.

We don't give that info to people with one post. I am sure you can understand ..

I doubt it would be publicised at all :)

If you are smart though you just go get the spam filter code and look through it yourself :)

If the developers are smart it'll be encrypted or hosted on a 3rd party server with an API :)

Yep, and people with one post asking for the info sounds mighty fishy, if you know what I mean ...
