Seems to be an influx of spam bots recently.

Chad, did you remove a CAPTCHA or something recently?

I have not noticed, but that's not to say it is not happening. I have been super busy with my remodel and move that I do not come in as much as before. I do have 1 other moderator that has been busy as well.

The thing that I have changed it where first time members can post. Beyond that the spam issue was crazy, prior to creating the random Focus ST question and answer that you must fill out to become a member.

Looks like its time to look at some moderators. :D

I took care of some of it. Remember to 'report' the post. That way I get an email on my phone and can take care of it
ASAP. Thank you everyone for your help.

Yes, report a post is the best way for everyone to help moderate as well. I got a report this morning and took care of it as soon as I saw the email.

It seems like I need to re-enable my first time user policy. I know its confusing, but it does cut out almost 100% of the spamming.

Further more, the user last night and this morning were members who joined before I had striker spam policies.

Thanks Dan
