Banning .info Domain Names

I have been giving a lot of thought of banning all .info domain names form registering on my forum.

I looked back at the stats and the last 34 out 35 spammers on my one forum were all .info domains. So I decided to look through all the members who have registered, not one legitimate member has an .info domain.

Most of my members are companies and those who work for these companies.

So as of today, I have banned all .info domains from registering on my forum. I figured if someone really wants to join my forum and they are real and not a bot they will contact us and let us know that they are legit and want to join my forum.

I will let you know in the coming weeks the outcome.

Why another blog about forums? Great question, we are just a couple of forum owners who have built ours forums from the ground-up. We just wanted a blog for real life forum owners, with real life experiences.
