Default GARS Spam

Hello,

I recently installed GARS. Works great. Looks even better once I got the images moved to where my style is expecting them. I am having troubles with spammers. One of my anti-spam prevention tools is the "Prevent Spam" hack from VB org. If a new member (read spammer) tries to post and the post has a link they are automatically sent to the moderated posts queue. If they post a new article it actually posts. The spammers seem to know this, and they're specifically targeting my Poker Articles forum. It's frustrating having to frequently login and delete their spam. Is there a way to have GARS play nicely with Prevent Spam? Thank you in advance!

-Raymond

You are correct, it does go to the moderation queue.

I didn't notice since it was missing the "moderated:" flag.

I mean the moderated: you'd see in a normal thread view.

Non-issue on this one, my bad.
