    Paging the moderators.

    Is there not a setting to make the first n posts from new members require moderator approval? That's how we do it on the Yahoo groups I run/moderate. The TV spam's pretty much taken over for much of the day now, certainly in the timezone on this side of the pond, & it's only going to get worse while the olympics are on.

    Edit: A quick google suggests there is a 'Moderate New Members?' setting in vBulletin: Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> User Registration Options -> Moderate New Members -> Yes
    If that could be switched on, life would be far nicer!

    Maybe if they could block the poster's name such as rocking463 of if the forum members could hide those names themselves
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    Seems to be completely spam-free so far today. Hopefully that means the settings have been changed.

    Fingers crossed... it's become almost intolerable.
