SPAM - The endless annoyance

Recommended Posts

Back again.
They have weird methodology: they first create a topic named "asdasdasd" with content "asdasfasfasdfa" and then after few minutes change it into asian crap.

It seems that the spam is back, now that F1 2016 has gone live.

+1. So much fun reading the forums with all this flying around in between legit threads.

How about sending an email to confirm not a spammer - I wonder if spamrobots fix that.
Maybe even having the "I am not a robot" - much better than having to wait rediculous timespan to post.

I waited now 45 minutes to make second post, since I did not realize each attempt adds 10 minutes to post again.

It appears we have had a bit of a spam attack recently - I've deleted/banned as many as I can find, but if there's anything else, let me know!

It appears to have returned with a vengeance over the past day - I've now gone through and banned the naughty IPs/deleted the content associated with these banned users.

It came back with more 스팸.

I've seen other forum where you can't post if you use banned word.

It's working fine for me in the UK, maybe it's a side effect of Brexit?

Thanks! It was getting ridiculous. I wonder what these bots are supposed to achieve...

What about implementing a Stop Forum Spam blacklist? I've been using that on my own message boards and so far it has stopped dozens upon dozens of spam registration attempts, way before they even manage to register at all. Sure there are some that get past the cracks, but those are rare.
