What can be done is the question, Freds ? I checked, there's no way to BLOCK this user's post from appearing for me. :(

A certain few users can "hide" spam posts since zep is generally too busy to keep it monitored.

Edit: meaning you're better off posting actual links to the posts in question, rather than usernames.

This is getting ridiculous. Can't someone make a query for creating a new account that requires you to type out the single 7-character word for the number of colors PICO-8 uses ?

That should stop a robot anyways.

P#56983 2018-09-21 22:26 ( Edited 2018-09-22 02:44)

It's been super helpful when you all post links in this thread. I've been checking a few times a day lately and have caught a number of them before they get posted here, but this definitely helps. There's been quite an uptick in recent times.

It's possible to easily stop this problem. @zep, email me. I has the solution. No captchas or anything that could inconvenience users or add any extra steps to commenting.

@MBoffin

I wasn't sure if you were still active. I'm checking in about once or twice a day myself. If both of us are finding this many to mark, it's definitely an uptick.

Also, I notice they've started posting normal posts and then, a day or two later, going back and modifying them to include spam links. :( Mutter.

Well that's good. It seems to be from the same account.

"zhangsan520"

Any way to ban that account to nip it in the bud ?

P#57316 2018-09-30 18:41 ( Edited 2018-09-30 22:41)

That would be over to zep. All we can do is quarantine them and their posts. How they're getting around that to post more, I don't know.

I guess the good news is they're not using chapters from any of my books to peddle their pratty wares.

Looks like they are quoting from something though, a passage from a book or article from a magazine - desperate to get past a word or URL blocker I guess.

and those 2 are instantly gone, either the mods are quick, or the bots are learning

P#57828 2018-10-11 01:55 ( Edited 2018-10-11 05:55)

I'm not so sure these are all bots. This one seemed almost relevant to the discussion, and it wasn't an absurd wall of text, either.

P#57835 2018-10-11 10:49 ( Edited 2018-10-11 14:49)

@VgBlade The former. ;)

@Remagamer Pretty sure it's still a bot. They're adept at trying to seem relevant to the discussion, but are usually just constructing comments from keywords. Sometimes they are general enough comments that they sort of seem to relate to the discussion, but having seen enough of them (especially when they miss the mark), it's easier to see the pattern they use.

We had spambots in another forum and we ended up creating a forum called 'how to join' and it had the answer to the question asked as the 'captcha' since it wasn't a generic captcha that bots will sniff out and such, but a blank entry thing with the most unlikely word ever as what you're supposed to type into it.

In other words, AI's are trained to deal with captcha, not humans, so make the solution a human context and intellectual one and AI's will freeze outside in the cold.

This goes for all automatd solutions to problems, btw...automation is like thinking you never have to repair your plumbing because it's not broken today. You still have to maintain it for it to not break.

But yes, whatever can be done to end the spam - cause we get it every week, and in bundles. Nasty stuff.
