Spam filter for forum


Recommended Posts

Was there ever a spam filter for the posts here?

It seems like I see a lot of spam since the last server crashes.

 

I'm sure something can be added to the forum.

Minimum 1 approved post before including a url in a post?

Blocking the common bad words?

Moderation of first-time posts perhaps?

 

That sounds like a PITA, but there is indeed a setting for it

 

Moderate content of everyone in this group?

YesNo   until   approved posts days since joining 

Enter 0 or leave blank in second field to not limit by days/posts

"Until 1 post" would probably be fine. I wouldn't go for the "until X days" because I've seen spammers sign up days, even months in advance of their first post.

lol, spam in the spam filter thread ^^^.

 

the GD based captcha works and should be use in the meantime. the complaint posts about the gd based captcha (from a member that had already written a couple of posts and never replied when asked a question about it and another member that never posted after the complaining post) were most likely from (the same) spammer(s) that just wanted an easier captcha.
