Title: SPAM
Post by: Switz on April 09, 2007, 06:15:15 AM
Why does spam seem to be posted in this forum always?

Why cant the spammer have his own build log?

Why goddamnet!

Have you tried adding a special requirement on the registration? Are they bots or real people?


Drew, you need more mods, to keep it down as everytime I come on there is spam hanging around the place.

It is silly.

There's no requirements to registering at the moment, I've not done very much with SMF or PHP so I need to have a good rummage round the underskirts of the forum.  Perhaps genuine people should have to contact a mod to register. I know I've seen that switch somewhere. ::)

I'm going to clean down the membership list as well, get rid of anyone who's on the ban list or has only made one post in a long time.

Drew,
If you make me admin, I might be able to do that.

But if you dont, I understand as I have many forums lol

That turned out to be pretty easy. 
I've done the "have to reply to an email" thing.   If that doesn't work then I'll have to do the "send a request to a mod" thing.

From what I've been told, they have a program that targets forums that are not that busy. I know a few people who started forums and were not checking it, it would get slow, then they would get tons of spam.

SMF forums have a bit of a reputation for being vulnerable, but the three post rule has fixed the problem.

 Hello all
http:(removed) - generic carisoprodol

Have you been having painful sensations occurring throughout your body, and are searching for an affordable effective solution? You may want to take a look at the medication called Soma if this is the case.
http:(removed)
 Lets take a closer look at this medication that has helped thousands cure their painful sensations instantly. http:(removed)
 Soma should be taken with great care, as taking too large a dose can lead to a coma, or if taken for months at a time, even addiction can occur.

Title: Intentionally different subject header for no reason.
Post by: procersapientiae on March 04, 2015, 07:27:51 AM
Couldn't we prevent spam by requiring the subject header to be the "Re: <Thread Topic>" for a post to get posted? Is that a thing we could do?

That's actually not a bad idea, I'll look into whether simple machines will let us do it.
