Gobee comes to mind.

Proselytizing born agains are far worse than people selling widgets. Although his non religious posts are pretty damn good.

good question

I guess it would be pointless to suggest that maybe, just maybe, a technical solution to the problem is in order?

Hint: pattern analysis. All the spam thus far shares common traits. It is in fact quite easy to eliminate completely.

Oh ok...

The approach I usually take is to develop a set of patterns to indicate likelihood of spam. In this case the patterns might include:

1. Newly registered user and/or <n posts
2. Improper use of the [ url ] tag
3. A set of a few key words commonly seen in the spam so far

I assign a score to each of these patterns based on their value as an indicator of spam. I then set thresholds at which the post is either canned, held for review, or allowed to pass through. More likely you don't want to delete anything if you have the time to review -- in this case it's far less time than is currently spent chasing them down.
A CAPTCHA is useless here because this forum is proprietary and therefore these aren't robots. Not to say someone wouldn't or couldn't automate post submission, but I think if you review the logs you'll find that's not indicated.

If I were assigning this work to a developer I'd be generous and give them an hour or two, including time to test.



But I'm wasting my words, aren't I?

ivycoco. I think. Though it's hard to understand just what she/he is on about. It could well be climbing, or some other subject of real interest.

khanom, I sorta like the mob rule, vigilante-ness of having the STForum members out the spammers...

...it has a techno "eye-for-an-eye" sort of symmetry that is appealing to me.


Not that I don't like your elegant soft solutions that are uber efficient. It's just, well, so unfair, think of the poor spammer on the other side! They've gotta make a living too... so a bit of air time for them is not so bad, eh?

You know, Ed's got a good point.

Why do we have to go all techno-nuclear on these spammers when good old personalized lynchings will work just as well...AND keep RJ gainfully employed and able to guzzle designer coffee noon to midnight?

Ya gotta think of the big picture here. Wholistically. Compassionately. See the world and all its differences as just part of the sitcom we're each paying monthly for.

Spammers may not be people like you and me, but whatever they are, they gotta make a livin' just like you and me, right? I mean, even naked mole rats that poo and pee all over themselves and in their own beds deserve to live as they were created, right?

Let the spammers be the naked mole rats of the Taco. Let them revive old Lasik threads, invade climbing TR's, disrespect memorial threads. Let them wallow in their own feces for the $$ they crave.

Until RJ gets the word that another one has slimed its way up from the bowels of the earth where it belongs...and is looking for naked mole rat heaven...


BTW RJ....roxyrohit is looking for naked mole rat heaven. Thanks.
