TFS Vijay:)

MID issue is a real big problem, have seen few attack member's using MID's, few repeat same set of posts to get to their point.

Me being in CS field just wanted to say that restricting MID's as per IP address is nt enough, its very easy to change IP address specially if ur using LINUX. How about even checking for gateway address or the DNS name or any other info to restrict MIDs.

Thanks for the efforts. This will control the spam in a large way. One suggestion is pls restrict MIDs from sending PMs till they make a certain number of posts. We get some unsolicited PMs(p0rn or hate PMs) from these newbie ids with 0 posts which can be avoided. They can be banned if their IP is tracked.

I dont think it will be unfair to them also as normally we have noticed that Newbies involvement on the forums is a gradual one and not like on the first day itself they start posting several posts. So for many it wont be an issue. And this will impact spammers as they dont have that much of patience and want to just post hundreds of posts on the first day itself.

And moreover these limitations are just going to remain till they are a Newbie.
