    spammers found the site. vBulletin is popular so i'm getting someone figured out a way to automate getting around the random text in an image thing that vBulletin uses. or someone has a lot of time on their hands.

    hopefully vBulletin will upgrade their random text image generation thing to stop this. and/or the spammers die in a fire.
    All I do is party...

    Since I am out of town this week and unable to really take care of this right now I am just going to turn on new user moderation. Meaning no new users will be allowed to post until I personally review and approve of their info.

    I host DI off of Vbullitein but we've got a lot less traffic than you guys. However we added a captcha and it seemed to solve everything.
