As we've all seen, we have advertising spammers joining up on the board on a regular basis, and I'm sure we would all like to see them gone. Here's a suggestion:
Set it up so anyone who signs up a new account will have to answer a security question. Something easy, like, "what is the common nickname for a Plate-clad Total Parry running 1-1-1?", or "what do the initials D.A. stand for?", something any D2 player would know, but few outside our community would know the answer to. In the case of brand new players, they could be instructed to call RSI or go to chatzky and ask for the answer.

Can't they just add the usual security question where they make them post the code in a box?

I've fallen over the cliff so many times I can no longer count.

Despite our "rivalry" status in 81, I thought I'd help you out with this one. I too had the same problem, then I figured out that after reading the first page of an old message you simply hit the "back arrow" to return to the forum page and then click the small number 2. This allows you to see the next page.

Is this a pain in the ass? A little bit, but it has worked for me.

Hopefully my explanation is clear. If not, let me know and I will attempt to clarify. Hope this helps.
