False Positives
by bchertov
23 Aug 2010 05:33

I'm getting known user's posts (posts from well-established users on my board) being flagged for moderation because its "Found in akismet database".

i think there should be a setting for a minimum post count that defeats all spam checks, ie, if a user has posted more than x times, their posts are assumed to be not spam.

I have NEVER had akismet supply a true positive match on anything. It has ALWAYS returned false positives. First thing I did was disable akismet with this mod.

how do i add someone who becomes a spammer after joining, just like the orginal MOD for this when you go into a users account it allows you to add them to the list from the IP address they signed up for or the IP they spammed from

this is a very importany feature this MOD had, you may want to contact them to find out how to add this section to user accoun information in admincp

Send me a screenshot of what you are talking about as its not immediately clear to me what the problem is.

If you delete the posts as spam, they can be automatically added to the list based on your settings.

Can you add a whitelist feature for IP? VBSTOPSPAM doesn't have this and this would be a great feature and not sure why no one has it?

Thanks

Its possible we can add it. I don't see how useful it would be though.

I agree. It will be an option in 2.x

Dude, thank you so much for considering this, if we can just get it to deny posts with an error message instead of sending to moderation, it would save having to go through a daily moderation queue of over 100 posts! :)

OK Snookieboy, version 1.2.4 was made especially for you. Hopefully that is what you were after. :D:D:D

DUDE, I love you (in a totally non-man love way), gee thanks so much!!! :)

I tested it, and it worked!! And even better, I noticed you used a phrase so it was easy for me to edit the default text to:

Sorry, your post was denied because you are a new member, and are posting links to megaupload and/or other download sites which are typically used by spambots when posting illegal content or malicious files. Please re-submit your post without the URL by using your browsers back button. Alternatively, if you are posting good non-illegal content, you will need to have made at least 3 posts before your allowed to post download URL's.
Again, thank you so much.... Please share your donation goal so I can at least assist in some way :)

Don't worry about it, life is too short even if you are into man-love. I am into spam-hate so at least we have something in common :)

Just put the GlowHost name out, order hosting, join our $125 per sale affiliate program, or just tell your friends about this mod.

Anything you can do is great, Thanks.

BTW - Version 2 is the works now, We are running it on our forums and it is schweeeeeeeet!

Great, thanks for the 411.

Not many people are reporting about earlier versions so that is great news. :) If there are any other reports, please tell!

This caught my eye after opening registration today and getting slammed with bogus registrations. I have a very small user base by design and did it all manually but decided to make it easier. Oops, that went bad. Just installed this and will see how it does.

Snookieboy 27 Aug 2010 15:06

Just a quick question, you jokingly said 1.2.4 was made especially for me, but is that version features (the auto blocking instead of moderation option) continue you with all future releases, or do I have to beg for a special version of each release you make? ;)

Thank you once again :) Will make an article about your hosting on my forum at some point.

Actually, I wasn't joking. You made a good suggestion, so I added it for you, me and everyone else. It is part of the core now so it will always be part of the Spam-O-Matic system.

PS

I appreciate the forum post. :)

BadgerDog 27 Aug 2010 19:41

Re-installed for testing ob v1.24 ... :)

Have temporarily disabled v.61 vbStopForumSpam mod and vBulletin's v4.04 built-in Akismet spam checking system...

Set threshold of post checking to 1, which hopefully will stop erroneous moderation of registered member's posts greater than 1, which was a problem under v1.12 of this mode...

Thanks for your efforts ... :)

Will post results ...

Regards,
Badger

Edit: same problem with v1.24 as with v1.12 and RSS posts. All are being moderated for an RSS user name poster that has far more than one post, therefore should not be moderated. Have now disabled "Auto Moderation" function of mod to see if that fixes RSS poster problem.

I am testing this out on 3.8.6 patch level 1. No issues installing, love the feature in the profile for submitting and banning. Will update if any conflicts arise.
