Worst spam I ever seen on Frihost

Very recently, a spam bot spammed Frihost using an account named Somli with 158 posts. The entire latest posts list has been entirely filled with spam posts that makes little sense as well as other than to call a phone number for something that seems like a service. The spam posts have been removed just a short while ago.

Wow, that was utterly ridiculous! I've never seen one of them quite that prolific neither.
Luckily, Bondings built us a great system; whether it's one post, or 200, it just takes two button clicks to send it all to the spamcan Wink

It is fortunate that it is very easy to get rid of spam to prevent the forum from being overloaded with spam posts. There should be a human verification system to reduce or prevent the number of spam bots from registering. Unfortunately, it is stil possible for bots to bypass such systems and such programs exist.

Aye, and several of our spammers appear to be people rather than bots as well, so they'd only slow them down a little rather than preventing them.
There have been a few ideas put forth for spam control, but, they haven't been implemented. Bondings seems generally quite busy, and spam control seems to be lower on the priority list compared to the actual hosting demands. That's part of what we mods are here for Wink

Bondings don't need no other spam control when he has sure fantastic Mods in place!! Go Mods!!!

Great job Ankhanu, and of course all of the other Mods too. Applause

200 posts .... wow, how long did it take the person to make that number of posts, or were they all by a bot? Shocked

Looks as though I've missed an epic event last night .....

Now if we could just get rid of the "poor quality" posts and put them into spam can where they belong. I've seen quite a few of them lately.
Posts with a very poor quality or very short and without any real meaning.
