    Moderation queue

    Hi.

    Thanks for registering at the Phoronix Forums! We are glad you have joined the forums and hope you enjoy your stay. Please note, in our fight against spam, posts that contain a URL or image will be sent to the moderation queue while you have less than five posts. Additional rules and notes can be found @ http://www.phoronix.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=6 If you have any additional questions, please contact us using the "Site Discussion" forum.
    I'm not submitting post with URL or images yet my posts are going to moderation queue. Is it right?

    "Senior" accounts are those with 100 posts or more. Somehow over night with whatever new spamming software is out there, they're managing 180 posts quite quickly while still defeating the spam detection software... Beefed up the spam software a bit more this morning.

    Looks like prince1200 is another senior member account used for automated spamming. Are there unmoderated parts of this forum that are used as loopholes to turn accounts into senior user accounts that are then used for spam?

    Could mods please also try to find out whether senior account hottwothree got hacked. Seems to be just random posts now.

    I'd prefer captcha instead of long-waiting moderation queue. :S

    I guess you never use recent posts feature? This forum would drown in spam bot posts without moderation. Just, please, moderation on *everywhere*

    Addendum: Modern spam bots don't necessarily post images or links anymore either

    IIRC the threshold is 10 posts, after that you are good to go to post whatever you like.
