SPAM
 
Please have a confirmation code upon registering or something..this is getting ridiculous.

There is already a CAPTCHA code when registering, but I think these codes can be bypassed by the more sophisticated bots. I reckon there should be some sort of overly strenuous CAPTCHA-like requirement for all new users, and that they have to enter a code (or a series of codes) for every post they make until they make, say, 5 or 10, after which the codes are no longer required. This would effectively defeat most spam bots.

There are alternatives to CAPTCHA. For instance, you can have it so that there are questions that require human answers instead of just "copy this code". Like "What's 5 + 5 - 2 = ?".

This spam shit is fucking soul destroying...

how about if you had to register an e-mail address and then a code is sent it, then you had to enter the code to complete the registration

Trust me, it's being discussed thoroughly in the mods forum. I agree, it's completely ridiculous, and almost out of control.

We've been having the same problem over at tabcrawler. Our admin's changing some stuff to try to remedy it. It's annoying. I've gotten completely desensitized to homosexual pygmy circus sex.

I asked the Grand Poobah of tc what he's doing and he's scoping out each new registrar by hand for now. So far it's working.

Wolfsherz 2008-12-10 06:38

THey've just unleashed the motherload!

I dont know about the rest of you but these links are great. I get porn plus free stuff. I just need to wait for all of it to arrive in my mail, for some reason its taking a while

TruthDevoid 2008-12-22 18:13

oh you must not have giving the right credit card #, social security #, address, name, date of birth, mother's maiden name, your complete financial history for the past 10 years, and your first born child. If you give them all that, your gay asian goat sex coffee mug might arrive 2 years sooner.

Most users ever online was 1398, 2007-06-24 at 20:08.
Wolfsherz, abrabyvex, IRON90, speseeVef, sweencenume


At least 3 of those are obviously spam.

johnmansley 2009-01-05 04:54

I ban any users with obvious spambot names when I'm online. Obvously I can only do this when I'm logged in!

SPAM is tearing this forum apart! Is there nothing left to try out to stop a majority of it from happening? It's annoying as fuck to us posters, but I can only imagine how annoying it is for all you mods to have to keep up with constantly.

TruthDevoid 2009-08-03 13:03

Has anyone even let Nomad know about what's going on around here? If he doesn't know, nothing can be done.
