So let's rip the dollar bills right out of their slimy hands! Control systems, auto bans and security scripts, yeeeeeehaaaaaaw!

These Nokia spammers are even spamming up existing threads now. This is getting way out of hand.

Yeah, we need a picture thingamabob at signup, and I'd still think some kind of restriction on the number of times you can say nokia and ps3 in a single post..

Yes it is getting out of hand. Spammers runneth amuck! I think a nice little automated script that checks for keywords in a post would be killer. Then it could just filter out the post. I'm not familar with vBulletin, but I am very familar with php. Modify the "submit new thread/submit reply" function?

Yes, that would be a lot less effort implementing that into the registration process than the previous suggestion. Although I'm not sure, I haven't played around with vBulletin for years.

Some time ago, sane banned a user who had a website for a user name--and who actually posted like a normal member, without Nokia or whatever spam threads.

Yeah, that Chinese guy was real person as well, but the majority of spammers are programs.

I know of some computer interest forums, (as in PC users, gamers, etc) have these type of restrictions, whereas you cannot post in the classifieds section unless you have been joined for more than 90 days, I suppose you could do the same here, with thread starters.
Make it 30 days(or better than that, say 50 posts) before one can start a thread. Make this clear during sign up, and then im sure most spammers will just not bother on this forum.
But like you mentioned Nihilist, if you need help with V Bulletin, maybe ask at some computer enthusiast foruml.

yea this shit is getting insane. i saw at least 4 new ones today. one of them was funny though at least...the russian bride one. i noticed most of the people that made the post were banned...but their post and links were still there. maybe they should get deleted right after the person gets banned? i know i've seen many of them disappear all together..but as long as their post stands...so does their ad.

Whenever the mods detect spamming, as far as I have seen they do not delete the thread, they lock it. They do that because they don't want some dickhead to keep it right up in our noses by posting in it, so that it might just die the silent death of being forgotten. Seeing as we are all exponents of doing things without the direction of rules and bans, I don't see why this way of fighting spam should even need the intervention of mods, administrators or scripts. If you don't want a new nokia blaha-jitjat-65-73 or a dildo la alexis, don't post in them and they might even be so far down the list when a mod comes around that they don't have to give a damn, and a happy FBS, PST and powers is a happy metaltabs.com.
I rest my dumb case.

Thats a fucking good idea. These spammers are pissing me off too. Its so fucking stupid and pointless, no one would ever buy their shit. Well, Banning and closing will suffice I guess.

Just logged out and checked the registration process. We do have an image verification thing...

Maybe the bots can read it though? They might have a harder time figuring out 2+2.
