  • Reporting spambots.

    Michael, do we have to report on every posted spam? Or can you just nuke everything posted by:

    elizabeth4126
    Edi8th99
    Malka4re
    quptj7196lasjdf
    ikahlE43
    phoronss (probably not a bot, but a spammer still)
    bella10388

    The methods I use to verify the spammers are:
    Klicking on "Reply with Quote" to see if there are hidden URL:s.
    Mark some text, press CTRL-F to load the search box in Firefox, jump to the first page in the thread, click "Find Next" to see if the spammer copied from someone.

    Should be taken care of now, thanks.

        There's a new generation of copy & paste spambots out there, the C&P bot with altering. I.e. removing or replacing words in order to evade detection.

        wiaf941aelj - standard C&P bot.
        DM613 - new gen C&P bot

                            Can we have in addition to reporting posts a "report this user" button on the profile page? e.g. here http://phoronix.com/forums/member.php?66607-Led54Vale

                              There's a risk they'll just start spamming bogus reports instead though...
