Russian porn

Have something to say about forums.debian.net itself?

Russian porn

Postby Soul Singin' » 2009-07-12 05:22

Given the enormous volume of Russian porn delivered to this forum on an hourly basis ...

Would it be possible to set a filter which automatically deletes any post with the words:

  • "секс" = "sex"
  • "видео" = "video"
  • "порно" = "porno"
:?:

I was just wondering if it would be possible to restrict further posting to anyone who has been reported.
I.E. new Spammer posts , We use the report button , new spammer gets temporarily banned till a mod comes to check it out.
That and/or restricting new members to a few posts a day or 10 min. before reposting till they have been here a while.
I realize they have new spam mods , but it's getting out of hand lately.
Maybe a time ( zone ) based pole of your current mods , with a few more mods to fill in the 24 hour clock would help.

I just cleaned out 15 or so by one spam-bot. Man, they're a pain. (Not Russian though, for whatever that's worth.)

I was the de-spammer on another sight ... it was a lot of effort.

Well, it's possible to censor words but just in a way where the bad word gets replaced with something else so it will not really help. Unless I'm a really dumb and are missing something basic I don't think there is a way to prevent a post with certain word actually being posted.

No, and if it was I doubt we would enable it since that would be a 'nice' way to silence someone. Report the guy and he'll shut up until and admin shows up...

Not a good idea either. Many register to get help with a problem and it can sometimes take a page or two with rapid posting back and forth to get it resolved.

Our best bet I guess would be to prevent the bots from registering in the first place... easier said than done. (Hopefully) the server people are looking for solutions.

And to have enough spam-killers willing to do the quick removing :) .
If you (the admins) need more of them, just ask. I've thought in the beginning that I'm too new here to apply...
Because let’s face it, the unfortunate aspect of software development is that it involves humans. Mewling, disorganized, miserably analog humans. Sometimes they smell bad.

This is open-source. You could hack the code.

Akismet is free for personal use.

In the spirit of helping the blogosphere as much as possible, we've decided to make Akismet free for as many people as possible. We have free API keys available for your personal blog.
Commercial Use

We still need to keep the lights on and the servers humming though. If you are making "mad paper" from your blog (more than $500 a month) or if you're a Big Company we have commercial API keys available just for you.

It says it's for blogs but it can be used in forums as well. I haven't had a need to use it on my forum but I've bookmarked it if things get too bad.

I'm not recommending that it should be used just that it's a tool that might be useful.

Can Akismet be used for other things besides WordPress?

Absolutely. The Akismet API can be adapted for almost any application with submitted content, including forums, wikis, and contact forms. If you want to adapt it for a different system, please join our development community.

Probably a bot... and to be honest this thread just might have a bot attracting thread title... superb powers of deduction eh?
