Dear members,

Of late, there are a lot of spammers (most of them bots) trying to register themselves on this forum.

To prevent them from eating up our bandwidth and slowing down this forum (and also give me less work to do in the process Lips Sealed ), I've started banning the IP addresses of some countries.

If you are a true blue Singaporean but happen to be overseas trying to access Sengkang.com, or you are surfing in the office (and your Company's servers are based overseas), do let me know if you have problem accessing this website, and I'll unblock the IPs accordingly.

You can check your current IP address using websites like this one:
http://www.whatismyip.com

Cheers,
Spiderman

I've tried to block off all the IPs from Russia and Ukraine, and a few from the US, where the bulk of the spams are coming from.

However, I realized that I've included one set of IP address used by SingNet... which meant quite a lot of members were not able to login today. Embarassed

I've since updated the list a few hours ago. Maybe you like to try again. If not, do let me know.

Do bear with me for the time being. I'll continue to monitor the situation. If there are still problems, I guess I may have to abandon this exercise. My apologies to all the inconveniences caused.

Cheers,
Spiderman
