Topic: Can't block spam : really very annoying
Here is my problem :
first : my forum is open to guests, and I want to work this way.
two : I get a lot of spam in existing posts (from 2 to 30 messages each time, in a minute) or in new posts created by robots. More than 100 messages...
Ok, I delete everything, more than 100 messages per day, not cool. And stupid : one time it's ok, but 5 times a day, it is not.
So, I really need something to block that spam.
I think protection against spam should be much more effective. In fact, there is nothing against spam in out-of-the-box version : no flood protection, no spam filter (bayesian filter?), nothing. For example, a post containing more the two url should be suspected and verified.
To my mind, spam should be considered as a security problem. Anti hacker protection not enough.
I complain there is no option to mass delete all what is posted between date-timeX and date-timeY, so I have to surf and click and click...
Of course, I tried all I can, wasting my time :
-Captcha Box (http://www.punres.org/desc.php?pid=250) : absolutely no effect ;
-Spam protection box (http://www.punres.org/viewtopic.php?id=709) : absolutely no effect ;
-More, I banned the name of a robot spam («mp3 ringtones») : absolutely no effect ; in fact, I should say : absolutely ridiculous effect : the guest is banned, yes it works, («exclu» in french), but no matter for him, he can post what he wants. (see pictures : ban in admin section is older than spam, and note the «exclu» title).
So, what to do ?
