Okay, the spam on the forums and groups is getting ridiculous. I spend more time fighting the spam then actually helping users. I have a few proposed anti-spam forum addons that I think should be used and I want to know what the community thinks. 1. Integration with Stop Forum Spam .com which is a list of known spammers IP, email, and usernames. When someone creates an account on the forums, their information is checked with the list. If they are a known spammer, either the forum can stop them from creating an account or an Admin is notified. http://www.stopforumspam.com/ 2. Only long-time members can make groups. Simple enough. 3. Longer "new user" status. From what I have seen, the spammers are getting around the new-user status by posting a non-spam post; then they spam. 4. Each IP can only have one account. This is a bit harder to accomplish and is probably not a good idea. But it is an option. 5. ZB Block. http://www.spambotsecurity.com/zbblock.php If anyone knows of other good Anti-spam tools, please post a link bellow. If enough "likes" or posts get in this thread, maybe we can convince the higher-ups to get better anti-spam.
