Forum anti-spam

The forum it ATM protected against spammers with reCAPTCHA and MOD Stop Spammer (configuration Admin/Registration/Settings). MOD Stop Spammer share between web sites a list of black listed IPs/user names/mails.

For a new registration, the default behaviour only check user email (Admin/Members/awaiting activation). If this account is already black listed, administration must activate the account (Admin/Members/Awaiting approval).

About spammer:

  • They wait a long time before activation there account by mail.
  • They never post anything
  • They use signature with URL to useless website

Then some time:

  • We should clean up Awaiting approval list time to time (1 time a month)
  • We should clean up/check Awaiting activation (1 time a day can be nice, cause spammer are slow)
  • We should check user without post. (1 time a day/week, the harder job)
    • Check the signature
      • Ban the user/the mail (and the IP, if it create more than 1 user)
        • Delete the account (or not, cause remember the relation user-IP can be usefull sometime).
        • Or at least clean up the signature
