  1. Hey guys,
    What have you all used to stop those annoying spambots on your XenForo setup? I've tried lots of settings to no avail. I figured larger networks would get more of these, however it appears the bots go after general forum topics.

    Things I've tried:
    • reCAPTCHA
    • Question & Answer Captcha
    • TPU: Detect Spam Registrations addon
    Edit: It appears a lot of the bots come from Pakistan, so I'm going to try blocking that country completely as there are no pakistan minecraft players on my network.

    Thank you!
