Help keep spammers out. Use the Report Post [!] button

Post by Sponge » Fri Oct 22, 2010 8:34 am

At the lower right of every post you will see the Repot Post Button Image

Very useful for reporting spammers to Admin (like I've just done a few minutes ago) who can then dustbin the posts and ban the user at the earliest opportunity.

Hmmm, I was just looking in the Members list after having seemed the habit of register and fill in everything but something associated with the central topics of this board Scientology. Did control some of the out-links (and got IP Banned myself I guess. when looking for a pattern with: xenu: )

This seems to be an overall problem that really disassociate the focal-point with totally irrelevant links interest and association just there to take and not to contribute at all. This is a major disassociation to the board & it would be nice with some composting of the dot com. Or reusing the Spam-user so they in some way gain the purpose of this event that they searched for to be members of.

Surprisingly low levels of child porn, escort sites and so on (found so far) that could be damaging to this site. But the users interested of having a name starting with "porn" could be of some interest to declare PTS since they are SP to the purpose
memberlist.php?sk=a&sd=a&first_char=p&start=4750
I Guess they wanted to be linking to main pages on xenu.net and citing L Ron Hubbard in the signature, but the links have to go away.
Ch1ld p0rn and related I haven't been able to check

could not continue searching for outgoing links from the signature. since IP Got banned but are interested into see what has been done. I can see seriously attacks earlier on & I think it would be a nice message to flower and grow by using the reusing methods of composting shit user and flower. Btw Ecology and Nature would handle it.

I am not so found in posting every idea openly

Residual Spammers
Some implemented ideas seems to have worked but leaving a residual groups of boot registered and SEO-registring on the board with no interest of contribution., This Group is not able to report by any member since the the reporting tool seems to require a post, right?

This is what giving us the non writing registering spammers, taking the edge and focus of the message board with its high density of irrelevant mass. I want to know what page they surfed from before they registered in this board. the reference that might have something to tell.

Having a hard time to understand the most new registrations.
1 the general visibility for one member registration in this forum is low (haven't measured any forum before) and a test registrations i did is still invisible in most search engines.
2 its hard to to see the SEO Spam benefits from such a single registration
3 the disadvantage for the board with all this spam registrations is hard to figure out.
But all the spam registrations does not strengthen the board, rather disassociate the edge by all the user with an agenda of something else in name link and context contribution.


vicosa644 on this board could be a boot entity with a lot of similarities to other members summed up on

Another assmebler of profiles
Hopes admin can see the referring page the registrant comes from, if they click on a link and so on...
From this i conclude that many board&forums have this type of registration, mostly seems to get erased pretty quick however.

Suggestion
I Suggest an easy solution like writing an "why i want to be a member here with my 2 - 3 favorite-places websites in the topic Scientology on the net. Pretty easy to anyone interested. This could be done on the on the Scientology OC Guest board by any new registered signing with their newly registered name. This is more personal and valid than any catch-pah in my eyes.

does not fit the seonukepattern with boots from 500 Ip just manic registering members, but still could lead to something when every sleeping members login and starts attacking a weakpoint. seeing some in the history where unapproved members still could write and add text in a pending mode.... or if every boot member started to link to new fresh preeteensites and so on. Having a more focused forum is good for the visibility as well as the stability.
