Zombie Invasion

Postby GriffonSpade » Fri Oct 21, 2016 3:06 pm

So, these spam bots are clearly zombies, as it's evident that their brains have rotted. Do they REALLY think that spamming their crap like that makes it more likely someone will click their links? If anything, spamming like that makes it LESS likely. :|

On ubuntu-fr.org they have a phpbb plugin to deal with spam. When a post is reported with "spam" in the information field, it's automatically removed -- any abuse being severely punished when the moderators check the deletions.

Just disallow non ascii titles and that korean spam would be fixed for now.

Wow, that IS a good idea. Blocking any non English-standard roman letters from the thread titles would certainly knock these particular ones out. That, along with maybe 10 minutes between making threads...it might be annoying, but how often does one REALLY need to make two threads?
