Regular visitors will have noticed ever increasing amounts of spam on the Trading Gurus Community Forum. On November 24th 2012 we implemented some changes:

1. New users will be moderated 2. Registered users who have a post count of zero will not be able to view attachments or download code. 3. Registered users who have a post count of zero will not be able to create a new thread

As an additional countermeasure we anticipate introducing a modest paywall in the near future.

If this is your first visit here our apologies for the inconvenience.

    A Question for New Members?

    Welcome,

    I have noticed that there are quite a few new members joining on a daily basis. But very few actually post anything.

    My question. You are obviously looking for something? Ask a question or make a comment. If the answer is not know at least you may get pointed in the right direction.

    Maybe they are just come to download the robots and disappear in nothing. Or maybe they are spammers....

    Hi Mintaka,

    Welcome.

    Who knows?

    But if they are Spammers they are not doing a very good job for two reasons.

    1) Lack of Spam
    2) Jim would have deleted their accounts.

    Hi Alan,
    You are right. Maybe they signed up to download the robots and than disappear for ever

    Increasing Spam

    There are quite a few attempted spammers in there too Mintaka.

    Most of them give up when they discover no links are possible in their forum signatures. However some of them are now starting to put in a bit more effort:
