I use a virtual server (Easyspace) for my small website and use CuteFTP to upload stuff. There are a couple of guys who keep spamming my messageboard and I have to keep deleting their posts. Is there an automatic way to bar them. I suspect some entries in the .htaccess file might do the trick possibly?

plonkeroo, if you would be so kind as to PM me the information you have on your spammers, I would greatly apprecate it.

If you have their IP addresses you can limit access with .htaccess , you may also want look at the e-mail addresses and see if there is a simliarity in those too. What BB software are you using?
