Clearing out the Spam

Posted by Lucha Vino, Nov 28, 2017.

OK - So, I haven't been on the forum in quite a while.  I decided to drop in tonight and found the front page dominated by Spam.

I cleared out all the posts.  Trust me, it was a chore.  Hello Snooth Admin! It takes 5 clicks to clear a spam posting and return to the forum.  In the interest of forum hygiene, could you make this a simpler and faster process?

Commiserate with your pain. We've all been wading through the muck, far more than ever should've been necessary.

Hope the Admins respond. Am curious why they haven't implemented a Captcha requirement for new member signup....

It's a daily chore, unless someone else in the forum has beaten you to the punch.  There have been days with five pages of spam.  That takes about 15 minutes to delete, one at a time.  It's a pain in the ass to be sure, but the administrators are doing nothing about it.  They don't care at all.

Chinese bots were back tonight--but they're relatively easy to get rid of since they have (many) multiple posts from the same ID....

I thought we needed to delete each post to the main topic before deleting the main topic post.  I should try what you said.

Cleared out another couple pages of spam.  Most seemed to be less than 2 hours old.

Most of the spam seems to go up at the end of the workday Asian time. Definitely more of it nowadays (compared to a year ago) is from North America, but most still seems to originate from Asia.

Took care of a bunch this am.  Agree with the NA concept and they will do so any time of the day - did 4 yesterday pm.
