Spam

There's another mass spamming tonight from the hair extension people. I would suggest that the spam button "rules" be fine tuned again.

I'm guessing that at the moment a poster is blocked if 5 or more different people hit the spam button (maybe it takes more than 5 I don't know).

The problem late at night is that there aren't as many member online and even though one person (as in me tonight) can hit the spam button on 5 or 10 posts from the same person this apparently doesn't end the spam.

It might be worth changing the rules so that one person can stop a particular spammer as long as they are spamming 5 or more posts.

This particular person is just posting to every outstanding thread.

And here I was wondering why a bunch of old threads had been bumped to the front page for no apparent reason.

Another spambot/spammer is attacking BLF.  They can be pretty annoying.  So that people later will know what I am talking about, this post is all over our forum at the time of this writing:

I think you're right.  And now it looks like they quit.  They spammed 18 threads with a total of 23 posts over a 14 minute period.

Is this how CPF began the journey to the darkside?  Idiots spamming and CPF trying to come up with ways to stop it.  I hope we are able to kill the spam without losing the community feeling we have here.

Hmm.  Next step would be to create a technical solution to prevent spam from being accepted.

For instance, generate a hash of each message over some minimum length (so Silly messages don't trigger).  Then just keep these hash signatures in memory for a few hours (to keep the collision checking quick) and dump any new messages that collide.

You could defeat this by changing a single letter of the comment, yes, but it would defeat pure cut/paste attacks.

Good idea! There are implementations of algorithms that are designed to find near-matches (such as simhash and probably lots more, considering that there's a lot of interest in academia). Simhash, in particular, is actually pretty fast, relatively speaking of course.

Also, while we're talking site issues, I thought I'd bring up this thread. NeoGeo discovered that a blf.cc.cz link in an old post of mine now points to a domain squatter site. NoScript and a custom filter list actually blocked the redirection attempt in FF but when I opened the site in IE (in a separate sandbox), it redirected to a spam site. I suspect this affects all old links that point to blf.cc.cz (ie. the old site). Is there any way to re-write old links in the database so that they point to the new site? Getting the old subdomain back would obviously be easier, but I suspect the spammers won't be too happy to give it up and cc.cz is notorious for ignoring abuse cases.

Am I the only one who finds this extremely funny? Location HK, number of posts 2 and asking about spam. Has there ever been a legitimate poster from KN or anywhere in China who mentioned apam or any website in their first couple of posts? Smile

So we have a spammer asking about spam Smile The usual disclaimers apply of course...if I'm wrong I apologize! It's funny nevertheless!
