Default Suggestion!

is there anyway for new members (newer than a week, fewer than 10 posts, etc) could be banned from posting links before they can even hit submit? That would like make our spam reduction... immense, and I wouldn't have to resort to putting witty stuff in Spam reports!! (I have lost my mind, last seen.. the printer I've been working on all night).

Unfortunately, that is not a possibility.

If spammers want to post links then what they will do is reach the 10 post limit by posting more spam and then enter their links. This just means that we'll have more spam to clean up in the end. As of right now, the maximum posts a spammer make is on average 3. Once you have reported one spam post, you do not need to go report the next one that he makes. One report is all that it takes and the Moderation Staff will be notified.

Thanks

As mega said. We have an option to delete posts as 'spam'. That automatically deletes ALL posts by the user, then we just have to banhammer them.

Heh, your witty stuff gives me something to enjoy while killing spam
