Gahhh! The spam is killing me!

Postby The Tim » Tue Sep 02, 2008 12:00 pm

Holy cow, I had to delete like half a dozen accounts this weekend, responsible for flooding the forums with 50+ spam messages!

Anybody know of a good anti-spam tool/mod for phpbb3? I've got one I'm going to try when I get my PC back up and running, but if anybody out there has any particular suggestions I'm open to trying just about anything to stem the tide here.

Most of the solutions I know of are at the registration level - I.E. adding a human element to getting a new account. This can be as simple as a CAPTCHA or requiring all users to be individually verified by an admin/moderator type person.

Also, it doesn't seem like LHR is on very often anymore, and synthetik hasn't signed on since April. Another set of eyeballs can help nip the bud.

I haven't been around much lately and I deleted quite a bit when I was on more. I'd recommend using CAPTCHA if you can find a way to incorporate that into the site.

I read somewhere that some people put in a form field and then hid it from users. Anybody that filled out the field out the field when registering or posting must be a bot.
Remember, if you rent it's not a home, it's a hovel.

The spam bots attack again!
