My site is getting spammed
« on: February 02, 2008, 09:24:31 am »

Please help me out here.  My site is being continually spammed by countless people using the 'comments' function of Coppermine.  I have set comment length to 1 character and 1 line, and to 0 and 0, but the site still gets fully spammed with hundreds of lines of spam.  Has anyone been able to resolve this problem?  Please let me know..

Eugene.

No need for size 16 letters and shouting on this board. Do it again and i wil do more also.

Joachim is right however in pointing towards using the search option. It's there for a very good reason.. most questions have been answered before. So there is really no reason for calling him unwilling to help out. There is no reason whatsoever for you to react like this, try and modify your behaviour.

@EugeneAllan. If you search for "comment spam" you wil find a lot of threads on this subject. Have more patience then some and read them. Among these threads are a lot of helpful ones such as the captcha plugin thread and other tips on how to deal with spam.

THERE IS PLENTY OF REASON... I HATE SOMEONE THAT IS THE FOUNDER OF BOARD GIVING A GENERIC ANSWER TO EVERYONE THAT DOESN'T HELP... HE ACTS LIKE THIS IS PHPBB AND CAN SEARCH THE SITE FOR A ANSWER... NOT!

Nice person "wads24" sent me an unsolicited PM with his/her rant:
I GUESS YOU LOCKED THE TOPIC I CAN'T REPLY NOW... I KNOW HOW TO SEARCH....DUH!  HOW ABOUT A DIRECT LINK TO THE MOD YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!!!! :) :D ;D
Taking into account his previous records of misbehaviour, wads24 got banned by a fellow moderator who had enough of him. Stay away
