I've noticed that almost all the spam we get appears in the very first thread, whatever it happens to be.

Why not make the very first thread a dummy one titled something like:

'A place for everything we really don't want to look at'

Then make it auto-delete every day Cheesy

Try moving it to be the first topic in the section. That's where the generally post most often.

This is a most ingenious solution to a problem faced by every web site. And here, rather than use "spamware" that can adversely affect the performance of site software, we just give them a place to post their garbage, and remove it as quickly as it shows up.

Congratualtions, folks! Brilliant wOO

Sometime, the simplest ideas are the best  Wink

Glad we sorted this one out.

P.S.: there's no possibility to delete the posts autamatically in this thread, meaning someone still have to delete them...
