[Sticky] Please Report Link Spam
We have seen more link spam recently. The tactic seems to involve a new account and posting copied relevant comment/question. They would then add outbound links to unrelated websites. When you see examples like the ones attached below, please click the report button so that we get notified and remove them.
Unfortunately the forum have been subject to spam and corp bots for some time now.
Not hard to spot the post coming from AI bots, tho i don't feel the actual bot charge is high at the moment.
You can maybe begin to audit ip and mac adress to see if some of these can be recognized and blocked even before creating an account?
Also an anti-bot posting lock for the first 20 post on the forum could be useful, a pain for real users but i think it is an understandable measure.
AI bots are simply forums killers, be aware about!
