Any way of blocking all these spam emails we’re getting on the forum every day? You know, the ones with subjects like ‘ding-dong, flippety flop, don’t you agree?’ - very annoying!
Unfortunately you can’t win the battle against spam, we try our best but they will always figure out a way and are persistent. We are very harsh on spammers - they are instantly banned! Some forums need all accounts approving - I don’t know if we could do that. You could set up filters in your email client in the based on certain words.
Our current forum spammer tactics is create new account, make up to one new topic with one post with some random shit.
And, yes, just like @Psalm40[/USER] said, we don’t want our anti-spam measures affect legitimate users like you, [USER=1997]@Klink. Seeing spam is pretty annoying (so as constantly wiping it, lol!), but when your own posting abilities is limited because of anti-spam measures - that’s over the top in my opinion.
If each and every post would need verifying from our (pretty small) moderator team, it would kill the spam. But wouldn’t it kill the live discussion as well?
Anyways, in future this could be re-evaluated if we discover some more effective ways to block illegitimate ads. And one more important thing to say - if you (like me) hate spam ads so much so you can help us wiping them regularly, please apply to our mods team at email@example.com!
Thanks guys for your responses.
