    Thanks for the hard work Anti-Spam Squad

    I just wanted to express my appreciation to the Freesound team for clearing up the recent spam attack. I've no doubt it was a lot of hard work and frustration, and no doubt there's still a lot more to do turning tempory measures into a fine tuned self defence system.

    Wish I had the skills to help, but alas, the last time I messed with the brains of a computer it was in CPM, ohh.., and a little BASIC.

    Anyway, you are really deserving of thanks Guys and Gals!

    We're still working on some measures, as you see we just stopped newly registered users from spamming. I think in a week time we will suddenly see the spam attack restart again! But we got some really good hints on the blog and have a few more ideas smile

    I can't imagine how much work would have been involved in ditching the spammers and then ditching their spams!

    Great work!
