special spamm guards

Post by dark_wizzie on December 3rd 2007, 3:35 am

Its seems the classical captcha spam safeguard isn't working all that well, recently. (the one where you get a line of barely readable words to type out) I suggest some customizable new spam safeguards, like a questioneer: Who was the 27th president? And typing in the correct number means you are human. After a spam bot went into my forum, I'm not taking an chances.

Good idea, but you might want to add a poll so people can vote.

I'd vote no :/

1. What if you don't know the answer?
=> I'm not gonna do a google search for a post

2. Guests can't post links, and there's an image to validate

3. Humans spam too, and they'll always pass anti non-human stuff

Caihlem, the problem is that the image doesnt work as well anymore. quite some programs can pass it already. And I personally think that its just time till' the image checker is obsolete... Humans that spam? Well, you can't stop everything, but you can minimize the amount, right?
BTW: poll added.

27th President of what, dark_wizzie???

The problem of such questions, in any spam "guard", is that Forumotion forums & their prospective members come from all over the world. It would be difficult to devise a set of spam-preventing questions that people, from different parts of the world, could answer that spambots couldn't. These spambots are very clever & such questions would be dead easy for them to be programmed to answer, I would imagine.

We just have to be vigilant in protecting our forums.
