Daily Limit one time extension
« on: July 25, 2009, 12:16:05 PM »
Hi I have a site with approx 40k members. posting in the forum has been turned off for the last year but now I'd like to turn it back on again, but much to my annoyance I've found out half of my members are spam bots. I'd like to get rid of them before i upgrade the forum so I'd like your permission to do a one time scan across my entire database I understand if this will cause to much load on your service.

my Login Name: davidA@TsimplymayaD.Tcom

I made a small donation just because i think you guys run a great service.

Thanks
David

Hmmm, if you can provide the data as an extract, we might be able to do a scan of it here. I can't promise anything, but if you can export the name, IP, and email address then we'll see what we can do. If you can do this, PM either me or MysterFCM and we'll get an address you can email the file to.

I also raised the daily limit t to 10K for the moment, as you'd exhausted the first 4K already. :)

Please don't PM me for assistance- post your questions in the forum where others can see them.

Guys just wanted to say thanks again turns out i only need to scan about 25k so a daily limit of 10k for a couple of days will be great. I don't want to put me out anymore than I have done already.

I must say as well you guys run a very nice service here I'm impressed.

Thanks
David
