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?

Another idea that might help is just adding a 10 new threads per day cap. I doubt anyone ever needs 5 new threads in a day, much less 10.

IN my opinion there's simple solution for zombie invasion. Add draft post mode and:
- Makes all post saved in time period (related to previous post) less than 30 minutes automatically will not be published, but go to draft
- First post for each new user of this forum should been added to draft. Each next post will be in draft area until moderator don't accept all post(so zombie will create first post and next and next and bam - no post will leave out draft arena; normal user creates first post and wait until moderator accept it)
- Moderator must accept each post in draft arena.
