Koreans? The solution is... Gangnam style! xD.

I can't find the korean threads.

Re: Please note: Dealing with spam.

We can't stop them effectively with the tools we are willing to employ right now, so ignore them and we'll delete them as they pop up, it's not that big a deal.

Re: Please note: Dealing with spam.

Not sure if it's possible, but perhaps requiring all comments from members under 10 posts to be moderated if they have links in them would be a way to cut down on the spam-fest.

True, but many just put the spam in the signature.

Re: Please note: Dealing with spam.

Combine that with disallowing signatures until after 10 posts, possibly? If nothing else, it would make it harder for the spammers to dump a bunch of junk all over the forum.

Re: Please note: Dealing with spam.

I just updated the security question to something I myself had to google to find out :P it is easy to find though... maybe that deters some of the new spammer influx.

Re: Please note: Dealing with spam.

Almost forgot about the report section (been a while since logging into forums). I got a potential spam message today, and was unsure how to report it until now.

Thanks for the tip.
