All threads that bitch about new, existing, or old members will be posted/relocated here. Keep this shit off the General forum, because no one wants (or cares) to hear your opinions. Now go back to the other forums and post something worthy of reading.

I would love to see a better spam detection process.

Spam detection? As in, you're checking in daily (and then some) and just don't realize that all of the threads are written in Chinese? How in the fuq is it not getting detected?

keep in mind that the allowance of this is based on the forum software and its components, not the person who runs the forum.
Additionally, if this is a hosted service in a server farm, the responsibility lies with the hosting company. Anything done to prevent robot spamming would require another layer of "human confirmation" (think captcha...). I thought there was something during the registration process. But if these are coming from some click farm in Buttfuqistan, they can easier circumvent stuff like that.
So then what?
You can run Geo-ID and deny known nation-state IP blocks. But what if one of the spammers is from Austria? Well then, looks like 2Fish if fucked too.
So that won't work.
I am sure there are programs out there that can be run on forum software to identify rapid postings done from a single IP (or subnet), but it probably costs money.
So yeah...
keep bumping

Was it a question about running a fly shop?
Ha... then I would probably understand what he said.


I guess I don't know what he meant by "detection". In my head (scary place, mind) I thought he meant "I didn't know the spam was on the site". For instance, if you go to the Tying section at this very moment, a reasonable person could assume all of the new threads written in Chinese are spam. Just a hunch.

But yeah, stopping it before it happens I wouldn't have a clue. :cool

again, this would require something being installed that could identify language, IP address usage (in this case, if the same address is being used over and over again to post garbage - like LenH's IP once did), or even the URL redirects embedded in the messages being posted.

but with the current member profile creation being as open as it is, there is little to no way to curtail fake users who wish only to spam the site with phishing sites, malware infested webpages, etc.

So, either the forum owner finds a way to install a software/hardware solution that identifies and notifies someone of spammage, or shit stays the same. I am guessing that is not an option as this place (with the exception of ad revenue) is a cost center in the eyes of the owner(s).

Remember when you had a sandbox as a kid? Remember when the local stray cats would shit it in because the lid was ill-fitting, or it was left off? How likely were you to play in that catshit infested sandbox once you found out it was catshit infested? And who was going to clean it up? If you wanted to play in it, Mom/Dad told you to clean it up.

So yeah - we get to figure out how to deal with the catshit here, because no one is going to pay for a tighter fitting lid or for someone to make sure the lid is put back on...
