Hi guys
Just seen this new user pop up on the listings for who is using the site at the mo -if you go to their profile it's a chuffing ad for mobile ringtones.
I dunno if this is the kind of topic that gets posted here - sorry if it isn't

Today, there's a spam attack, predictably; a way of sifting out spammers through a simple quiz for new users seems pretty essential and URGENT if this site isn't going to be inundated (and we ain't seen nothing yet).

In reply to by libcom.org

Most of the newly registered users have been spammers and people who think that a libertarian communist forum is the best place to share theories about history they thought up while on the crapper. I suggest blocking new registrations until a system can be put in place to screen out spammers. I think ABC or one of the others has a system where you have to comment on a specific thread, then await admin approval to actually be able to post.

To be fair though a lot of older posters think LibCom is a place to share theories of history that I ... I mean, they... thought up on the crapper.

But I do think a quiz or an admin check is a good way to go, and quickly too. I don't think we should block new registrations though. Just implement the new system as soon as possible.

Thought I'd posted something like this, but my computer's fucked and I probably didn't save ...
Variation on Tojiah's suggestion: the first post of new registrations have to be subject to pre-moderation, "a system where you have to comment on a specific thread, then await admin approval to actually be able to post". Something should be done soon without all these delays and hesitations because one day, maybe soon (June 30th?) libcom will be hit by a tsunami of spam that'll drown out the rest. Don't know if it is technically very difficult to bring in this change, and I know admin have loads of other stuff to do, but long term it'll reduce their burden.

Next time could you link to the profile, it makes it easier to find, although in this case as he'd spammed over 60 articles he stood out :)

Thanks to whoever reported all those links sunday morning, made deleting them a lot easier.

Is there any record kept of deleted spam? It seems to me like there's getting to be more of it.

There was talk about spam prevention before, I'm not in favour of the revolutionary questionnaire, but one way would be to limit new posters to 5 posts in the first 24 hours unless they pm'd a mod. Not sure if you can do that on drupal though.

Hi guys, thanks for your help reporting spam. To be honest, there are so many spam user profiles that it's not worth reporting users which are spam profiles, please only report any spammers who actually post spam.

We need to work out a systematic way to tackle spam profiles, which hopefully should come with the redesign

Did anything ever come of the suggestion to limit the ability to post links?

An alternative would be to give members the ability to send posts to some moderation bin. We could flag things as spam so they disappeared, then a mod could either finally delete or re-instate them.

The change in format has allowed the instant reporting of spam, which is great - but for the sake of tradition, as this is the thread to report spammers rather than spam, this user - http://libcom.org/user/1047089 - is trying to sell 'flitflops' which I assume is flipflops.

That's right. Although we are keeping an eye on who reports posts as spam, so people who abuse it to report non-spam posts as spam can be warned and then banned if they are doing it maliciously.

It's probably fine to leave them unpublished. we can mass cull if there's any reason to do so.

It's probably fine to leave them unpublished. we can mass cull if there's any reason to do so.

that said, the best thing to do would be to click "report to mollom", then click the button to report it to mollom and delete it. That way it helps the forums stay tidy and helps improve our spam protections in future. (A mass cull of unpublished posts would be problematic, as some we have unpublished for other reasons and may like to re-publish one day)

No 'report spam' button, as it's an image thread; they obviously work a bit differently. Can't generate a post number for a link either, I could link to the thread, but you'll find that from the profile anyway.

jef costello

In reply to by libcom.org

I think they are both bots, I only haven't deleted OWen's posts because I am not 100%. Sometimes they practise with bots so that once they have made a few posts without being spotted and establishing themselves they can then spam. Doesn't seem much point here, but they do it.

You also get accounts that are really old and suddenly after 7 years start spamming, this could be because they got hacked or some seriously long term spamming.

As if Jef, I have thought about deleting Owentiffle posts; pretty sure it's a bot, but not 100% (good job developers), so want to leave that decision for the admins. Given that Owentiffle hasn't posted in this thread and at leas tried to answer any of the "accusations" of its non-humanity, it is pretty telling. Most people would respond... Hopefully the account won't flood the forums with spam; so tedious to remove it all.
