Spamming

Seems like there are sites trying to take advantage (see the recent spate of vivanls). Any idea of a solution? Are you going to do anything for members who have under -1 rep? (like hide their posts from everybody except them)

I'm aware of the situation. These users get deleted, their site gets banned, and they are removed. If I add anything it will be a flag feature, but for now I'd like to keep everything more clean. If it becomes a worse problem though, then yes that would be done.

My computer has water damage... which includes my admin account on there. Sorry about the retarded spam, I will clean it all up in a few days.

Would a Captcha or some other human test help mitigate this? I feel like I still see these in my feed reader constantly.

Sorry :/ Unfortunately I don't think a captcha would help... its actually the same fucking idiot entering every resource in manually, in fact its the same guy because he uses the same style emails... I even found the website where he offers his bottom-feeding service and pineapple is on the last 'sites that i spam'. He has a different Ip so that doesn't really help, either. It amazes me someone can waste so much time regardless of the fact that I delete every single one of his accounts... I considered adding a flag feature but I'm a bit busy atm. I will think about that though, because it is quite annoying.

ATTENTION: Spamming faggots from india

I delete all of your posts. Stop being a fucking bottom-feeding cess-pool of dicks, and find something worthwhile to do with your shitty SEO company. Your life is meaningless, and I would break your face in real life if given the opportunity.

How about moderators instead of a "flag" button?

I'd be open to that. Do you want to be a moderator?

Spamming has gotten worse. I visit this site everyday. Can you add a flag button or assign more moderators?

I'll also have a look at a flag feature. Got side tracked with other work :S

I'm doing my best to reduce spam, as I now have the rights to delete those resources.
Already deleted like 10 spam users, more to come.

I programmed in a flag feature too, I just need to deploy it now. Probably later today.

And thanks to CREEATION who's doing an awesome job by helping me out :)

Flag feature is active to those who have 15 karma or higher.
