Anti spam measures for new posters

29 replies • Last post

Unfortunately you may have noticed that this site has recently become a target of some kind of weird Indian and Middle Eastern love / dating / porn spammers. I don't understand why they think their crap posts will work here but we could go around in circles forever trying to understand the mentality of spammers.

For the moment we have added defences so that posts by new, unverified accounts will not be published until we manually approve them. If you have an old account here and have made posts before you won't notice a difference - this only affects new, unverified posters.

To new genuine posters, I can only apologise. We will work as quickly as possible to approve your posts and verify your accounts so that you bypass these defences automatically. I hope that this is only a temporary situation and we can go back to how things were before we attracted the attention of these oxygen thieves (once they get the message of course).

If you notice any problems or you think that your posts should be approved and they aren't, just reply here and I will get the message, even if it isn't published.

These measures looks reasonable to me, really strange why the spammers being so active here lately...

Yeah I don't know what their game is. This has already blocked a few more attempts so we'll keep it on until they stop.

Great idea, It's the most effective way to prevent spammers.
I sometimes laugh, what is the purpose they post here? it is very annoying

They usually post on these sites in an effort to improve Google rankings and such. It's very annoying, especially to new users who'll think the site is flooded with spam and won't participate in discussions.

I mean I'm all for boner pills and finding out how to please my partner, but I don't need to go to a random Indian love doctor on the CL forums for it.

😀 😀

The thing is I think they realised that posting their website links was getting them instantly barred, so they stopped doing that and started posting the same phone number over and over about 30 times in every post. It would not help them in the search engines at all unless someone was searching for that phone number specifically, which would be weird. They are probably the dumbest spammers I have ever come across and that is saying something.

This surprises me. What is the point of registering a new account and just spamming around? I don't get it.

Its likely they have a list of websites that they think will sell whatever it is they are advertising and they probably repeatedly spam the list every day. What I can't understand is when they post their spam and they see a message that says more or less "your post is not published, it will be checked by a mod first" and then they go on to post the exact same spam and see the exact same message FIFTEEN times. They aren't very smart are they?

Could they use some bots for that Ed? And because of that keep posting despite the message, or just poor English knowledge?

It is possible they are using bots but I think its very unlikely as we have an anti-bot firewall thing which blocks most of them. I can see that they are confirming their email address too which suggests it is a real person, as most bots just sign up and try to post immediately. I reckon you are right re the English - they probably don't even understand the message we are giving them.

I wasn't sure my question about the bots wan't stupid Ed as I wasn't exactly sure how they work, but I'm glad to see it's not so dumb 🙂
Let's hope we wouldn't need those Viagra pills ever...or at lest a few more years...you could unblock them after that I guess 😉

Would you believe that these idiots are still at it? Just today I had to delete a bunch more posts advertising "husband wife problem solution". I'm not even sure what they are advertising there, it could mean loads of different things!

The rules are in place because we were getting a huge number of spam accounts here. I'll have Ed get you set after he gets back from camping.

I imagine him in a grass skirt with mud rubbed under his eyes as war paint carrying a club to beat animals to cook over an open flame.

Thank god. I had thought you'd been away so long that you forgot how to use technology. By any chance did you work at a quarry and work your car by using your feet?
