Spam-Bot Protection


#1

Hello.

Ok, so we know about the spam bots, right? They’re not super, super, bad anymore but they’re still here. I posted this on the old forums as well, but I think it would be great if we had some type of human verification when we signed up, and every few weeks/ months to prevents bots from spamming!

This is a great idea. They’re effectively harmless, but definitely annoying. Just a tip for anyone who comes across posts from these bots: Don’t comment on them. Someone (I apologize, I forgot who it was) earlier had said that replying to the bots only further enables them to produce more spam as interaction with their post causes a positive feedback loop. Basically, they’re programmed to spam even more if someone comments. So the best thing you can do if you come across spam is to just flag it and move on.

Yes, I also try not to click on them as I’m not sure if that can be censored or not. Of course, someone will want to flag them but I suggest giving them as little attention as possible.

I hope it’s something fun like, click on the different colors. But I support!
