I was thinking the same, I've noticed recently that alot of spammers WWW link the same websites, could this be used as a way of instant deletion or something

I regularly check new members and keep an eye on the www for Nike shows, handbags etc and delete them, often find same name has joined all forums

I'm looking into a cross-site banning system, so that IP addresses banned on here (for example) would also be automatically banned on the other sites.

The issue with banning on web address contents or multiple posts is that it'll work for a brief period until they find a way around it, and it's bound to trip up genuine members - just as the confirmation code on registration does already which is bad enough Sad

There is a lot of spam traffic at the moment - the forum I mod for has had a notice sent by the software provider saying that there has been a lot more of late - and if we mark the perps as spammers, the software provider is advised and it is sent out to all other users of the software so that they are automatically marked as spam.

We had no more today (so far) so it seems to be working.

Strangely forum spam is on the up, but email spam has dropped significantly recently.

The sites are part of a stop-spam scheme, but unfortunately the spammers act very quickly and are starting to work around it (as we're seeing).

Is it worth having some text next to the report button mentioning what it's for, as TBH, when I seen the three "new" spam posts, I was looking for a "report to moderator" button and missed the wee triangle in the top corner Smile

Our forum spam members has dropped - although we have added additional steps to make it a human only system - but I've noticed my personal spam is back up to about 120 a day Big Cry
