How Do I Stop Spam Profiles?
Hi I have a forum at kellymartinspeaks.co.uk and my bandwidth keeps getting exceeded because I am having a lot of dodgy bots creating profiles and linking the profile to their sites. I've never had a forum before and never had this happen on my website prior to the forum and it could ruin my site reputation. I had a lot of casino ones recently, how do I delete them ban them as a group? Is there anything in settings where I can ban certain emails? Or stop people having profiles but the ability to just post on forum? I've got thousands and not the time to get rid of them all page by page...even bulk deleting them only deletes one page at a time of them.
It is unlikely this issue to consume your bandwidth, still check those topics for a solution:
You better stop this with some Wordpress login/security protection plugin, since wpForo doesn't control login/registations. It is Wordpress that does.
For me, this should be blocked BEFORE the fake user registers/logins. After he registers, it is so much work to clear those out.
Have you tried Akismet to stop spam?
To better bulk delete:
click on the "page settings" ribbon and increase the number of rows per page.
