BB Spam

Hello everyone,
I have (temporarily) disabled the ability for guests to post new topics or reply to posts, due to frequent and regular spamming.

In the meantime, we are looking for a better solution.

Thanks,
Manzell B

Re: BB Spam

I've been running a wiki (HammondWiki) for several years.   About two years ago it started getting spammed quite a bit.  I just started blacklisting the spammers IP addresses (most of them seem to be from China, Russia, and similar locations.)  That has worked quite well --- the incidence of spam has been reduced from daily to about once per month.

Another idea is to forbid posting message with more than n (where n is roughly 3) urls in them.

Also see http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?PeerToPeerBanList for pointers to a number of blacklists.
