To stop the constant spamming on the forums, these forums will be locked to view by registered members only, which means you will not be able to see any of the main forums if you have not signed in. I’m enabling this at the beginning of next week. Also means no guest view is allowed anymore on the main forums as it attracts too many spammers / bots.

Ah...am.. if you are encouraging registration by all visitors (read spammers), how you propose to filter out spamming, manually? automation don't work! :lol:

Spamming, viruses etc all is a menace all right, but forums readable by members only seems to be going too far and like axing our own foot. Moreover, spammers have been spamming by becoming members first. So, this technique won't prevent them from spamming.

BTW, I don't think I (my PC really, LOL) ever picked up any virus visiting zulm.net.
