Yes, the spam is annoying, and I apologize to everyone. It's very frustrating to me, and am trying to get a handle on it, as they've cracked all precautions I've setup to register an account. These are all automatic web bots that go around and do this automatically.

I hope to have this fixed soon...

I rarely have things to do in the morning or at night before I go to sleep. If you need some help, hit me up. Always down to help the site out.

Us old moderators are ready at any time to come back and drive the spammers away. :lol: I look in everyday and report all the ones I see. A few odd things about this is first they all are from UK businesses, and secondly many different kitchen remodeling businesses. Stupid part about it is, who in the USA is actually going to contact a UK business to remodel or install a kitchen, so for them, its a total waste of time.

Makes you wonder if you actually called them, and talked to the owners, what would they say.

Maybe what they need is to program about 500 phony requests for kitchen jobs, and waste their time going to 500 different wild goose chases in the UK to give estimates. :lol:

Yeah Greeney I noticed that too. Spamming remodeling services is kind of stupid to begin with, but spamming another country's website couldn't be any less affective.

In every life, a little rain must fall. On every message board a little spam will get through.

It's out of hand, and I know that. I am still battling this spam.

I am trying to find other ways to stop it... without hurting the site in any way.

I appreciate all your patience and these morons continue to spam my site.

probably been 50 or more at this point, I wonder if they all are the same business address in the UK, and are they an actual company with a street location? They have to register first, maybe there is a simple way to block them in the registering loop?
