    Can nothing be done? Is there not some kind of update or plug-in that can deal with the spam threads being started up all the time?

    You mean 'spam-spam' or 'I-wanna-be-a-kendoka-but-can't-be-arsed-to-get-to-a-dojo-spam'?

      Thats not spam technically, those are just dickheads :P

      Spam in this case is the automated stuff. Like where a new user signs up and makes one post linking to seduction products or a get rich quick scam or something.

      Since it's automated, there's likely a bit of software or an update they can use to filter for it. For example make a minimum post count or time as a member before you're allowed to post a thread.

        Vbulletin has a lot of these features - its down to whether someone (Alex/Hamish et al) can spend the time getting the options enabled...

            Or just refuse any first post containing a URL...

                          well i suppose if you have no choice. like when it was invented because the only side dishes available were old boot laces and dirty dandelion leaves then its nice.

                          saying that, i used to like luncheon meat in the shape of teddies, and thats basically spam...but it is in the shape of teddies...or clowns...which makes it taste better.

                          i thought the national food of hawaii was coconuts or summit-ah how little of the world i know

                            i guess this kinda belongs here...
                            i think there we should deal w/ all the "backyard ninjas" (for lack of a better term). i dunno how, but all this flaming is worse than the spam.

                              Awooga Guy has noticed that a lot of new accounts have been registered lately with the country as "Abu Dhabi" - perhaps these bots just go for the first alphabetical country on the list. Anyway we can nuke all these spam bots from orbit? Unless there is anyone here who actually is from Abu Dhabi.



                              That is all.
