Suggestions on How to Thwart Spammers

Jump to last reply

There are repeated instances of a new member who signs up to spam the site. Usually it is a blatant ad or a blast against some company that did something unspeakable (which usually not detailed). The spammer tops a bunch of old threads and disappears. Sometimes there are responses to the spam, or it gets triangled and the thread slowly floats to the bottom of the heap. But it's always annoying.

Suggestion: If a new member attempts to post onto more than one thread on the first day, the posts will be blocked until vetted by a moderator. Starting a new thread or adding to one's own thread, which is how most valid new members show up, would not be affected.

Suggestion: Any attempt to post to a thread older than 1 year since its last post generates a notice such as: "You are posting to an old thread. You may click 'Cancel' to retract the post or click 'Review' to have a moderator check your post before it is added to the thread."

Anyone have better ideas?
