I'm out.

Postby robjvargas » Fri Apr 24, 2015 2:06 pm

Yeah, I've submitted my last spam report.

I'll drop by now and again to see if anything's changed. But until it does, I'm done.

WD, you've created a user experience that favors fraud. Yeah, you've got people to undo it. But you've completely abandoned any utility that COULD mitigate this.

How many times in all these years have ANY of those Korean (presumed) gambling site names ever been in non-spam posts? How many times any of the drug names? How many cyrillic posts are there that have not been deleted as spam?

You don't want false positives. I don't want 27 pages of spam posts when I login in the morning.

I don't imagine that my absence is going to affect your bottom line, since I've already unsubscribed from your magazine. But until this changes, I'm out.

So sorry to read this, Rob. I hope you'll be back soon.
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.

I hate to see you leave, Rob, but I can totally understand your frustration. I hope they get the problems fixed, but I'm not holding my breath for it.

Aww, that's just sadness. You've added your own deep and heady flavour to the broth of this place, it's a shame. Good luck.

I've been thinking the same as foreign invaders, presumably Koreans, have repeatedly turned me away
from here. I cannot fathom their purpose in contaminating this site but, unless WD can stop them, IMO
the Forum will go out of existence.

Has anyone tried banning any post that has a Korean letter in the subject line?

There is a way to ban based on the strange characters, unfortunately WD prevented all the extra abilities to block spam by using wordpress and phpbb together. I turned on several CAPTCHA settings, but none of them work. The only one that did work, is I changed the posting of links to 3 only. I also changed the time between posts, meaning you can not post but once every x minutes.
