11 pages of spam. Poor General Discussions. ;_;

 

Sadly, I don't think there's any corner of the internet safe from spammers.

Would like to add a list of handpicked words from the spammers used in the list, have seen there are 2 different types so far, are there more 'templates' of these spam messages?

I'm not sure what went wrong with the anti-spam settings. I've hardened the anti-spam measures again, but it also means new players/people can't see their post immediately, which is a bad thing in my opinion.

I'm more caring for the morals behind these posts tbh even though it's probably just bad parenting, I'd like to know what went through the mind when posting this or setting up a bot for such.

I thought we had deemed this to be an attempt at raising google search results relevancy.

Why not just ban Chinese characters from the site all together?

Anyone with half a brain could notice just by looking that the site is English dominant.

If we would ban such characters, they will most likely switch to something else, which is harder to detect.

The spam is getting worse again. I'm currently on holidays. When I get back later this week I'll improve the anti-spam measures.
