Fighting spammers, need help

Post by Vitaly » Tue Oct 22, 2019 2:17 pm

Hi! As you can see, there are a lot of spammers every week. They are not spam bots, they are real humans, that is why they are able to pass the protection and post spam.

Please post here if you want to become Moderator to help protect our forum.

Thanks!

I'd be happy to help, and can put in a short amount of time each day. It seems like Synchonizor has been vacant lately, so yup, some help is needed.

Thanks. I'll poke around in the MCP and see how this software works different from others.

Just banned 3 users, all registered within minutes and under 3 different usernames but were the same guy. How do I find e-mail addresses? The MCP doesn't give me much info on a profile, so I can ban usernames and IP addresses but so far not e-mails.

Is there a closed-to-the-public forum where mods can discuss issues without them being public to the whole userbase?

Thank you for your help! I will try to make the private forum.

Thanks. The major issues seem to be drive-by's who post thinly veiled ads for all sorts of junk, and the more effortful types who join under one username, start an inane topic, re-join under another username, replay to that topic, and eventually get to where they try to post spam. I can ban usernames, ISP's, but not e-mail addresses to identify multiple account holders. That would be helpful.
