Thanks, ulTRAX. 'She' must have posted that seconds before I banned her for another post - the post you flagged did not show up when I was checking her out.

Indeed it never does.

I've been doing this for years now, and at least improved filters have reduced it to a trickle.

It's right on the line of being spam.

EDIT... I take it back. Q is an old member and if s/he were spamming we'd have seen it long ago.

The moderator has their work cut out for themselves this morning, there are literally pages and pages to delete. About 2 1/2 pages in this forum and two more in the economic section.

I didn't resolve anything. I ignored it. Obviously if someone reads the post they'll see it's not spam.

yeas! ran into the same bug that the post above me describes when i tried deleting a post ( that was rude- not a duplicate-- I have trouble more with the former than the latter) I apologize for the administrtaion crack, Sue but I stick to my software criticism.

Seems like you may need to put new registrations in a moderators queue for manual approval for a while until this spammer loses interest. looks more malicious than a bot, dont you think?

We put new blogs in a queue but not comments.

We are able to tailor our defenses for people like this as we learn their habits. Already the software blocks most of it.

I suspect that it is above the pay grade of the people actually doing the posting to decide to give up on a site.

I was thinking a moderation queue for new member registration so you could at least look for any pattern in the names or IP adresses ( probably proxies anyway). Can the Software limit posts to so many per day or hour untila new member has been registered for a month or anything like that? Many of these spammers seem to join and then do their spamming immediately thereafter.

They are using a variety of names and IP addresses, and though there are similarities between some of them, they are not close enough that we could catch them all before posting.

And preventing new members from posting would catch the innocent as well as the guilty, which we are reluctant to do. We'd only consider it if they were far more prolific than this lot.

What I don't understand is how RL could have been here for a year and this is his first spam post? Usually they create a user and spam in the open right away.

I don't think it was his first spam post. All his posts have now been unpublished and I'll be taking a look as soon as I have a little more time. Bit busy with the newsletter at the moment. lol

Lev Parnas is afraid of Bill Barr - and he should be

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas recently told Rachel Maddow that he's more afraid of Attorney General Bill Barr than he is of the mobbed-up foreign oligarchs he has betrayed. Barr, after all, can weaponize our prisons to punish Parnas.
