scorcher99, your post has been edited to remove the spam advertising.

If your forum has been sending out spam, then set it so only registered users can Report to Moderator, and use some additional Joomla registration options e.g. Spam Bot Check and ECC+ and enabling Captcha.

Please read the FAQ.

(1) I removed your signature because it was in violation of our "fair use" advertising policy

(2) You originally posted your message in our "reporting defects" category but you did not provide us with your configuration report. We reserve the right to not respond to topics that are posted in this manner and to move the topic elsewhere.

(3) There is no "bug" as you have described it because there is no facility to request CAPTCHA in the first place. In other words, there is no defect because this is the way that Kunena has been designed. If you do not like the design then you can pay someone else to design a way to accommodate CAPTCHA with the "report to moderator" function.

(4) Are you claiming that someone has found a way to send you 11,000 reports by email, every day? I have difficulty believing these claims but, in any event, these kinds of claims have not been made before on this forum in the 4 years that this forum has been running and, therefore, I would suggest that the problem you are having is not caused by Kunena, is being caused by something else.

Sory for problems, but english isn't my native lanaguage so I suposed that I can write post in that category.

Ad 4. Yes, my forum fifaonline.net.pl generated 11000 mails per day and my host provider block site. I pasted this message here (you cut it). Now I disable Report feature and I haven't this spam.

There are no guarantees about anything in life. Sometimes people find a way to take a perfectly reasonable tool like "report to moderator" and turn it into a weapon of mass destruction. Although you have not given us any real information that would have allowed us to assist you, you have your solution. In your case, do not allow people to use the feature if the feature is going to be abused like that. B)

Please, in future, read the important information about the forum category that you're going to use before you post. See the Index page for this information.
