took some precautions for them not to post anymore. although I doubt that it will prevent them from posting again.

been looking at sir wheelee's post.  either it's an organized marketing person or a really good bot.
will verify first if this is a bot before blocking future posts.

Hrmm, I was trying to use post moderation based on post count but it seems it failed.

I just installed Honeypot. Let's see if it helps block these spammers.

Yep, they've stepped up because we started fighting back. I've set the registration so that all new accounts require admin approval. I'll ante up on the anti spam mods.

Bots are attacking again today!

I turned off some of the anti-bot mods that were getting too pesky against humans. I'm still looking for better measures.

If the logic is displayed correctly then this will need post moderation.
Title: Re: Oh crap its a bot.
Post by: test on June 18, 2011, 05:24:10 PM
When post count is greater than 3 then there is no more post moderation.

Mods,

Please check the unapproved posts for any legit newbie postings.

The silent battle against bots is still ongoing. I have enabled admin approval for new registrants.

I'm still waging war with bots. I've abandoned Captchas as they are worthless. My new weapon is Filipino! Dahil mga banyaga ang mga spammer na yan palagay ko hindi nila madaling masasagot ang mga katanungan.

Doubled the layer of verification by using the avatar mod.

We have been bot free for the past few days. Now I only need to apply a similar fix to Wordpress and we'll be back up fully.

mukhang effective counter-measures ah.

Only here, though. For Wordpress, we're still getting spam.

NoSpamNX or Akismet + Disqus?

Post by: Sephiroth on August 15, 2011, 09:22:38 AM
master louie, ayos na ba?

baka pwede enable comments tapos manual removal na lang muna. testing lang.
Title: Re: Oh crap its a bot.
Post by: Louie on August 15, 2011, 12:16:29 PM
Fail si Akismet ang dami parin e. Maganda sana kung may custom question na verification na lang tulad nitong sa SMF. Baka may makita ka, Jason. Para ma-enable na natin. Ubos lang kasi oras ko sa workload ko ngayon sa dayjob ko.

We are getting more human spammers. Also noticed that someone coded their Chinese spambot to answer our security questions. I would IP ban the whole continent but we do have a few members there so I won't risk it.

Dami nanaman mga nagreregister na dayuhan para lang maka spam sa atin. Palagay ko na google translate nila mga tanong o di kaya may binayaran na Pinoy para magsalin sa wika nila. Kaya binago ko na lang yung mga tanong.
