Spam at Seoforum - New Antispam Policy Rule

by @ms (2286), 3 years ago

I am posting this to find out if my idea sounds reasonable to you, or if it's too much in your eyes.

So, what I am proposing

Each new post, from a user with no posts would be (automatically) scanned for links, and if contained link(s), the post would be auto-deleted and author auto-banned.

Does that sound fair?

Good idea. Even though you do good work keeping this place clean, it does make sense to delete such users automatically. Normally users would introduce yourself first ask a question. Starting with a links isn't normal.

Almost Every Forum using this to protect spam. Not only seo forum. And it's good idea for me.

I'd suggest Stop Forum Spam implementation. That should help a lot. Fighting spam has always been an issue, but SFS helps.

I would delete the post and give them a warning, 2nd offence would ban the profile. Maybe they would contribute in a more positive way in the future.

Good idea, but this is going to be automatic process, so red flag and ban without manual action from admin.

I think this is a fine idea.
