What with all the spam lately

Post by mooms » Sun May 28, 2017 2:28 pm

Hello fellow members of RyanVM

I've noticed that since some weeks, about 50% of the new posts are spam, more or less elaborate, do you have an idea what happen ?

No, but I've noticed it as well and reported some of it, too. Some I haven't reported because it might not have been spam. Those were usually just a line or two, and could, at a stretch, have been remotely related to the subject. But when they occur in a thread that hasn't been active lately, and the poster just joined that day, it is suspicious.

Cheers and Regards

It's seriously getting out of hand .... I think it's time admin locks this forum down ... as in NO NEW MEMBERS randomly registering. ??

Simple counter-measure: the first two posts must be reviewed by an admin/mod before validation.

but you should also be limited to only 2 ... cause you'll get people like the latest "wty123" that does 200 posts on his first go
