I killed them all and analyzed their (very predictable) posts and added their favourite keywords to the list of DOOM (basically any new person using those words in a post is very unlikely to have it actually be posted).

The reason they got through is because...
1) I had recently made the spam filters slightly more lenient because a legit person had his posts marked as spam.
2) They weren't using that many links. Mostly phone numbers. Weird.

Thanks to the people who tried to get some entertainment out of it with the blog things... I found those amusing. Smile

And to everyone bitching about where I was... I do SLEEP, you know. Rolleyes


RE: Holy mother of SPAM - xcriteria - 01-02-2014 01:07 AM

And they strike again, with a similar pattern.

Yeah, the phone numbers are pretty weird.

Lol.

It seems the keyword blocking thing doesn't block posts unless they have LINKS in them... :(

I shall plot something else.

Whoa whoa whoa...Soul sleeps?

So she's not an all-powerful robot that has conquered half of the southern hemisphere and rallied the zombie pirates against the space robot space monkeys from space? That's news to me.

GLaDOS lies. We must summon babaji!

Not just you, apparently. Can't be helped, I suppose the secret's out of the bag... newsflash, everyone: I am, in fact, human, after all.

Ah dang it. So if I want to post something about using black magic at my school it'll be blocked?


RE: Holy mother of SPAM - no - 01-02-2014 10:30 AM

Why are you using black magic anyway? Dark green usually does the trick with less difficulty.


Holy mother of SPAM - SoulRiser - 01-03-2014 12:30 AM

UPDATE: Killed all the new ones again, installed a new plugin to automatically un-approve all posts containing certain words. If it works, that should stop the little fuckers dead in their tracks. I'll still have to delete them though... lol. But maybe eventually they'll realize they're not actually posting anything and give up? >_>

If that doesn't work I'll make my own damn plugin. How hard can it be? xD


Holy mother of SPAM - Chanku - 01-03-2014 12:44 AM

baba ji now what? Sorry. I had to do this Razz


RE: Holy mother of SPAM - brainiac3397 - 01-03-2014 03:32 AM

*Two days later site gets renamed Spam Survival*
(Way to go Soul. You ended creating the T-plugin that ended up infecting the entire web population and turned them into mindless spammers)


RE: Holy mother of SPAM - James Comey - 01-03-2014 06:39 AM

Any explanation why there are still some more posts of these god damned spambots? You may have to block all the IPs in India to stop them for good!


Holy mother of SPAM - SoulRiser - 01-03-2014 10:02 AM

Not sure how those got past... Scratchchin

Might have to modify that plugin. It does work, at least, some of the time...


Holy mother of SPAM - SoulRiser - 01-03-2014 10:45 AM

Turned off the post count setting, just as a test.


Holy mother of SPAM - Ky - 01-03-2014 10:46 AM

What does that setting do, anyway? Is that the one that makes those weird messages appear at the top of individual user's pages?


Holy mother of SPAM - SoulRiser - 01-03-2014 10:57 AM

What weird messages? This setting makes the filter apply to everyone regardless of post count.


Holy mother of SPAM - Ky - 01-03-2014 11:05 AM

This kind.

"user needs more posts"...the heck?


Holy mother of SPAM - Ky - 01-03-2014 11:15 AM

It says "user needs more posts" on every user's page who has a post count of more than about 1,000, from what it looks like.

For users that haven't posted much, it says "user has required PC".

For Soul it says "user is exempt". :0


Holy mother of SPAM - SoulRiser - 01-03-2014 11:24 AM

oh... I have no idea what that's all about. Hmmm... Scratchchin


Holy mother of SPAM - Ky - 01-03-2014 11:26 AM

Sounds like it's related to the filter. Whatever it is, it's obviously broken. (Also, it's been this way on my end for months, at least. Didn't really get in the way of anything, so I didn't report it.)


Holy mother of SPAM - SoulRiser - 01-03-2014 11:27 AM

Googling it shows that many other forums have it, but nothing about why.


RE: Holy mother of SPAM - brainiac3397 - 01-03-2014 03:36 PM

Illuminati conspiracy no doubt...


Holy mother of SPAM - James Comey - 01-03-2014 06:09 PM

Seems the spam filter was able to stop the next batch of spambots. They kept trying to post in the School Talk and coincidentally the Blogs section, but failed! One actually had the courtesy to give themselves a really strange and creepy avatar. Something tells me they'll be back though.


Holy mother of SPAM - SoulRiser - 01-03-2014 10:59 PM

Did any get through? A shitload were caught in the filter. Don't think you guys can see them though.


RE: Holy mother of SPAM - James Comey - 01-04-2014 05:54 AM

Some were able to register, but none posted.


Holy mother of SPAM - SoulRiser - 01-04-2014 06:40 AM

Registering is still fine. Cool, so far so good. Evil


Holy mother of SPAM - Chanku - 01-04-2014 09:18 AM

Hansgrohe, can I has a link to that one spambot?


Holy mother of SPAM - James Comey - 01-04-2014 09:32 AM

The one with the creepy avatar?

Unfortunately I think Soul took down that said avatar. It probably had something to do with the Indian black magic they were trying to sell.


Holy mother of SPAM - Chanku - 01-04-2014 09:59 AM

Aw, I wanted to see it. :/


Holy mother of SPAM - SoulRiser - 01-04-2014 10:29 AM

My spambot killer automatically removes their avatar and other profile stuff too.
