19 of 20 are spam, troll, virus offerings (and maybe a few good massages)

The last non-spam post was made by ThePro........or was it?

Maybe someone should send them the suggestions Don Gorgon posted.

Techniques for avoiding, removing, and mitigating forum spam include:

Blacklisting services such as fspamlist, StopForumSpam and BotScout keep databases of IP addresses, usernames and e-mail addresses used to post spam or register forum accounts.[4] Forum software can query these lists and either deny posts or registration, or submit the request for human moderation. This is similar to DNSBL services.
Flood control forces users to wait for a short interval between making posts to the forum, thus preventing spambots from overwhelming the forum with repeated spam messages.
Registration control mechanisms used by forums include:
CAPTCHA (visual confirmation) routines on forum registration pages can help prevent spambots from carrying out automated registrations. Simple CAPTCHA systems which display alphanumeric characters have proven vulnerable to optical character recognition software but those that scramble the characters appear to be far more effective.
Textual confirmation is an alternative to CAPTCHA in which the user answers one or more random questions to prove that he/she is not a spambot.
Confirmation e-mails to registering users prior to allowing the user a first log in, either containing a site-generated password or an activation code/link.
Manual registration approval by administrators for each account.
Authoritative voice, using an external filtering service to get a verdict if the data is spam or not.
Posting limits on users, both to prevent flooding or to limit posting to certain users (e.g., registered users).
Registration restrictions include:
Denial of registration from certain domains that are a major source of spambots, or even domain extensions such as .ru, .br, .biz.
Manual examination of new registrants for several indicators. Spammers often delay email confirmation of several hours, while humans will confirm promptly. Spambots tend to create relatively noisy user names (e.g., John84731 or JohnbassKeepsie vs. John) in order to ensure uniqueness.
Using a search engine to investigate usernames for hits as recognized spambots on other forums.
Changing technical details of the forum software to confuse bots — for example, changing "agreed=true" to "mode=agreed" in the registration page of phpBB.[5]
Blocking posts or registrations that contain certain blacklisted words.
Monitoring IPs used by untrusted posters, like anonymous posts or newly registered users. A useful technique for proactive detection of well-known spammer proxies is to query a search engine for this IP. It will show up on pages that specialize in the listing of proxies.
Redirecting spammers to "spam subforums" to direct spam away from human users on the main site.
Disabling signature option.

Not that it matters spit, but out of curiosity

Starting January 1, 2019

The Seattle Times forums have 361 new registered members

That's 18+ new pages @ 20 members per page

Out of a total of 10,213 pages which equates to 204,260 members

1000's of which have never posted anything, not even once

Of those 361 new members, at just quick glance, not one has anything to do with any forum

Or else they'd only post on the tech users forum

It's all spammers, trolls, infectious virus mongers, idjits, badbadbadbadbad sales attempts


Our world-wide representation is soaring, however

Toronto, Mexico (how'd they register through THE WALL?), India (many, many, many), New Jersey, New South Wales, Kathmandu, Kenmore, WA?????, Paris, Melbourne, Indonesia, Singapore, Florida, Vadodora, Tokyo

are all vying to see which fools here will click on a Link from one of them

Are any of them lonely? Pretty? Female? Many seem to be pursuing me and want to give me a massage

That's something



*make that 362. Welcome to "binancenumber10", who registered just 5 minutes ago and wants you to click on his site so you can "secure" your passwords...........................or something.....................
