Test of forums without Cleantalk plugin
« on: April 01, 2018, 10:59:45 am »
I'm going to be running a test on the forums in which I turn off the Cleantalk anti-spam service.

The service costs about $10 CAD a year and prevents most nuisance sign-ups and spam from bots. I also has the Anti-spam firewall you might have noticed. I want to see if we can do without it.

You guys likely won't notice anything as I have it set that posts from new users are moderated by me before they're shown to everyone. But just in case, I wanted you to be aware.

The test begins now and will last for one week (or cut short if the bots hit right back). You can report any spam you see directly to me using the red flag icon in the lower right of the post.
