This mod is one of the most valuable mods I've ever installed. We are down to almost zero spam making it onto the forum. I have it set up to post URL attempts in a hidden forum and have that forum set up to notify me by email so I can easily monitor spam activity. The very few that have gotten past the URL stopper get sent to moderation by the keyword filter. This mod is very flexible and has saved me tons of time.

THANK YOU!

A spammer today registered and posted a moderated post full of links, bypassing the spam trap . . . .

1. Can Check4Spam be made to apply even for "moderated" posts?

2. How does a first-time poster manage to mark his post as moderated?

I am unclear whether or not you have this installed or you are wondering if it will help you. Check4Spam places posts on moderation automatically when the filter is triggered. The triggers are keywords or url identifiers.

Hi AtoZ, thanks for the reply

My mistake! That was the first time that I had seen a post marked as "moderated" and I did not realise that was the way in which was marked "for moderation" or "to be moderated" (by check4spam). I was under the impression that the poster himself had already given his post an "approved" status. So, check4spam worked correctly in that case.

However . . . .

My regular spammers normally make 5 posts with links in them. So I set check4spam to dis-allow newbies from making links in their first 6 posts. Immediately the regular spammers now move up to making 10 posts . . . . the first 6 get blocked, but the next 4 get through. How would I overcome this issue?

Could we have spammer's post moved into moderation after making 5 posts with links?
