Topic: Spambots, ugh

These spambots are getting annoying. Is there any way you can put a filter, like one of those crazy word thingies that'll filter them out? I know this place only has like 2-3 active members, but still, spambots are spambots.

Re: Spambots, ugh

Agreed.  We need better captchas.  Or even do away with captchas- I've seen some sites (like Mozilla) that use questions that only humans could solve, like "What is 2 + 2?" or "If you want to report a bug, where should it be reported?"

First they create an army of spam users, then they post in the first topic they find (which includes my Ubuntu package thread sad ), then they create their own topics!  Geesh...

There is a captcha but it keeps letting a few spam accounts passed, which I manually delete whenever I check up on the forums. I'm not sure if there are any better plugins for PunBB, I'll look into it next week

Re: Spambots, ugh

It looks like these new spambots take a random noun from the above post that they assume is the subject, and give a wikipedia definition of it.

It's like one of those Bing commercials.

Also, there's some posters that almost look like normal posters, but they talk with horrid grammar about stuff that's not in TS, or is impossible, such as these:

stelamethew wrote:

This is so amazing game and fun also. I playing this game twice a day. Its first level I cover more than 1 gold and 3 silver, next level is reaming  to play.

First off, there's no golds or silvers in TS. Busted.

Even a dead porcupine can clear "level 1".

I'm sorry, what?

Re: Spambots, ugh

We could try ReCaptcha. That's the one that uses two random words. It's pretty popular, so there might be a plugin for it.
