We are getting a lot of spam in our forums.

I traced a post back to the httpd access_logs

from the logs does it look like a script or a human ?



here is a access_log from my webserver.

Code:


72.232.x.x - - [18/Aug/2006:10:40:40 -0500] "GET /?gfx=gfx&random_num=763691 HTTP/1.0" 200 1501

It's actually in the admin, forums, permissions settings. You can turn off the ability for guests to post for each forum.
