Re: Can't block spam : really very annoying
I don't think there is any magic bullet for spam, its just a question of chipping away at it with a number of small steps. Though I still think we need to make it easier to remove spam that has got through.
I agree on both counts. A 5% anti-spam improvement here, a 5% improvement there on an incremental basis is still very worthwhile in the anti-spam arms-race we are all hostage to nowadays, alas.
And yep, I think we need to assume that no matter what we do at the front-end of a forum, somehow a certain percentage of spammers will get their crap through onto even the best run punBB forum, and so we will increasingly need more efficient tools for hoovering spam posts out of a punBB forums.
