Might be time to cull the bots again

Post by Das Troll » Fri Feb 12, 2021 1:19 am

A user by the name of Lindacatry sent me a PM about something that can solve a captcha. I assume you already know about this but I figured I'd double up to make sure.

Getting rid of the bots that spam dumb shit. NT has a somewhat easy sign up that gets hit by people who want to spam whatever junk.

I pay for a service that checks where the registration attempt comes from against a list of known spam sources (email host, country of origin, et cetera), then monitors the first 10 posts to see if they link drop a lot or shit like that. I honestly don't know how the ones that get by get by.

I've had a few people bitch because it flags Tor, but there's other ways to hide your identity, so who cares...?

Then report it? I can't see PMs or moderate them, nor can the plugin.

Not sure how. I didn't see any way to do that in the PMs.

Exclamation mark in the top right corner of the message. Should be in between and X and quotation marks.

No problem. It's not really obvious what it does. I wasn't even sure until you asked about it, because part of me feels like reporting PMs is grimey, but there's clearly uses.
