Descrición

I suggest implementing a "mark as spam" button near each post on the forum. After a post has gathered x spam marks, someone on the team should get an email, suggesting the deletion of said post. The post itself might also be added to the email, in order to simplify the decision.

I found a whole ton of spammers advertising in the documentation. Here is a link to the google search which pretty much shows them all. All the ones that talk about how to convert videos are obviously spam and need to be deleted and have their users shut down.

I've deleted all of those, and searched in the whole wiki for additional spammers and deleted (I think) all of them and their pages. I will ask Ruben about maybe defining a wiki-editor role to be needed by users to create/edit the wiki pages, but maybe that would clash with the usual character of an open wiki...

Forgot the status flip...

Also, these ALL 220 are spammers

You know what might be a decent idea then. If we still want to have an open wiki we could have some sort of probation period. New users can't edit the wiki until something like they have been a member for a month.

for that user hari123 maybe someone should create an account with that name a dummy one. Just so they can't keep reactivating it.

Big nasty spam attack today, as it was pretty intensive, I was able to test the effectivity of different captcha methods, and it seems the image captcha is still better (or they became tired of getting their accounts deleted and moved on to the next site, we will soon know).

I've also changed the setting to receive a captcha for a form even if one has already been solved; This will make life a little harder for users replying to several forum posts, as they will get a captcha for each comment, but it will --I hope-- make it even harder for spammers like those of today, that --obviously via scripting-- post about 30 comments 19 seconds after the account was created (sadly not an exaggeration).

Also, adding to the importance of this issue, I suspect that every time we use the "user delete" module to purge all the content from one of this spammers, if some of the comments were inserted in the middle of a thread or if some legit comments were added after the spam, the thread gets split in the forum, breaking it into "subject" (pre-spam comments) and "re:subject" (post-spam) threads, making it hard to follow this issues --and making the forum look messy--

Long story short: we have to get to a better solution to this spam problem, maybe test some other drupal captcha modules or find some other way of stopping this hybrid human+scripting spammers without making it harder for honest users to contribute (I know I'm captain obvious here :)
