Stop Forum Spam

Post by EdwinK » Monday 06 March 2017 10:12

seeing that there is some spammer active maybe this could be an option to use on this forum to stop a great, of not all, forum-spammers.

Have been using them to control my forum, when I still had one and it was really helping me a lot. And best of it, it's free :)

I don't know how often on average new users register here, but one option would also be to screen a few first posts (an admin would approve publishing few first posts from each new users). I've seen this on several forums and it seems to work pretty well. Though don't know how easy it would be to implement and how much work it would add to the admins (in comparison to blocking/deleting the spammers)...

Combination is best:
1) a check by a moderator of very first messages in a forum is a good idea to have a check on minimal standards for 'basic layout & content'
2) for 'first-timers' (and ;-) also 'old hands') it may also be handy to get 'improvement' by a moderator (like StackOverflow is doing)
3) clearly visible spam is a nuisance, but easy to deal with .....
Set1 = RPI-B+RFXCom433+S0PCM+Linksprite-shield for BMP180/DS18B20/RS485+DDS238ZN1
Set2 = RPI-3+RFLinkGTW+ESP8266s+PWS_WS7000
Common = 2*PVLogger+PWS_TFA_Nexus+KAKUs

@Moderators: how come all the spam bots keep getting in the forum. The unread view is once again filled with spam making the real posts unfindable.
Can't be that hard to implement anti spam measures.
