HIP message board is getting spammed hard.
Someone needs to monitor it better.

Thanks Roy. It was a Russian bot posting every few seconds that actually went through registration as an agent first just to get access. I blocked quite a few and then had to just block Russia.

Yeah they’ve been hitting us a few times a week lately. The problem is they take the time to verify their email accounts now too. I’d block all of China from the forums but we have home inspectors using our software there now.

Lol! I changed the settings to that first time posters have to have their post approved. That way you guys can’t see the spam posters and I’ll remove on the backside.
