Prevent Spam Posts

vB Version: 3.6.3 Rating: (39 votes - 4.74 average) Installs: 595
Released: 14 Nov 2006 Last Update: 14 Nov 2006 Downloads: 2616
Supported Uses Plugins  

Description
This will allow you to automatically scan new posts from new members for common spam keywords. If any are found, the post/thread will be sent to the moderation queue to prevent their spam from having any affect. If your filter is very strict, and a regular user happens to trigger it, no harm is done because your moderators can just approve the post.

Options
  • Maximum Posts - this will only scan posts posted by users who have this many (or less) posts. Usually spammers only post 1-5 times!
  • Keywords - a list of keywords (or any strings) to be searched. Remember it doesn't match a whole word, so a keyword of "[url" will block the user from posting any links. This is NOT case sensitive!
3.5 Users:
A 3.5x version XML file is also included.

Yeah this is handy, however spammers can work out how to bypass this, and try and spam the site still, however I like it when they waste there time, because I just come along and prune all there posts in a second flat lol.

You can keep adding to your keywords filter as they start spamming new things, but the "[url" filter should still cover 95%+ of it.

Would this block a post made with the enhanced editor and the user has added a smilie via the smilie selection box?

Hello,

I've just installed this interesting looking modification. I see there are already a few words in there to help start off.
I'm wondering if there are few more keywords/phrases that others have found that would be good to add on?

Perhaps these words could be pm'd me, as I doubt these words would be good to be viewable on this board.
