Name is Jeff, I run a small forum with my wife about road trips and cross country driving. Came across this place from BotScout. Found BotScout from Gunner's new fslc app. Found Gunner at StopForumSpamm. Found out about StopForumSpam from a phpbb3 add-on, the Anti-Spam Control panel (or something).
Anyway, after collecting what seems to be an endless supply of/need for API keys, here I am! Though I'm a bit hesitant about posting a link to my forum for obvious reasons...
I hate spam. I have run forums that varied in interests for over 15 years, back when they were static html pages, then later, perl scripts. I'm also a former supporter of two very large communities: The Coppermine Gallery forum and the Automotive Forums community -- the latter where my sole duties were to identify and eliminate spam and spammers. So I am no stranger to spam or running/administering/moderating communities. I am however, quite the n00b when it comes to actual programming. My skills there are close to nothing :-)
I'm 43, drive a New York City bus for a living and am planning to relocate to southern Utah next year. In the interim, I block countries from accessing my site. LOL
Thanks for having me and looking forward to learning something.
