    I've seen a couple of spammers recently - this is the latest one...

    ... and here's an earlier one

    Is there any way to tighten up on how people sign up? From memory I don't think there was any need to click a link in a confirmation email, I just filled in the form and could start posting.

    It might be good idea to have a "Report Spam" link on each post, but I don't know if Vanilla lets you do that?

    @NoWhereMan:
    You should use the current version! They released Vanilla 2.0 a few days ago.
    Maybe this solves the problem.

    I looked at Vanilla 2 a while back - I preferred the version you're currently using, to be honest. I don't think it allowed HTML in posts, for one thing, though they may have in the final version. It's only "plus point" (for me) seemed to be the single sign-up capability of it.

    there is an html purifier module, so I guess it does; btw neither "vanilla" vanilla allows html in posts, it is an extension ;)

    ok, I can do the import, but locally because the PHP5 on this server is too old (and buggy). So I'm not installing it (for now) because it would probably bug in some other ways.
