: I guess the lack of action shows how little the owners of this site
: cares about it. I doubt they even visit it. This has been going on
: for weeks now without any action from PH. The main C++ board is
: flooded with page after page of spam, and the only moderator option
: is to delete them one by one.
: Programmer's Heaven lacks, and deserately needs the following
: - A registration process with "optical" vertification. Ie some
: letters displayed in a weird picture, that the user have to type in.
: - Flood control on the message boards. All spam is posted at once.
: - A moderator feature where more than one post could be deleted at
: If the moderators were trusted with banning in the case of spam
: bots, it would also make things harder for the spammers.
Hi, we are not ignoring this, Jonathan (our lead developer) is on vacation, and Brad is working hard on getting some additional tools (such more captcha even when signed in), to combat these spam bots, we have people routinely going in and deleting spam posts everyday, but the massive amount of spam is just a bit too much to combat at this time.
You can see that some of these things went live today, we are hoping to add more and more features to combat the spam, we are also working on a bit more sophisticated rating system that will also help keeping spam a bit less visible on the website).
