Re: Inappropriate Material System

iEcstacy was quite clear that he/she was looking for a way to block users based on what they post on another forum. All that's feasible is to talk to the staff at other forums -- but to verify users as being the same individuals will require sharing profile information, not just IP addresses. It'll...

Re: Inappropriate Material System

Something like a Bayesian quarantine for messages? Moderators would flag examples of content that would cause a post to be entered into a moderation queue, and the system could 'learn' from that, selecting matching future messages to be queued automatically. If posts are in queue they could possibly...

Re: When Does It Come Out?

My friend phpbb is the BEST forums software on the market One of the best free, certainly, and it's more viable (with 2.x at least) if you've no need to modify the base install. With 3.x it looks as though there'll be less widespread desire to do that, so people can just skin/theme and go. vB is bl...

Re: Inappropriate Material System

this topic is specifically regarding posting of inappropriate material, not necessarily stopping spambot registrations. It won't work. There are always more domains, IP ranges, proxies, borrowed connections, image hosts, etc. If someone really wants you to see goatse for the umpteenth time, it'll s...

Re: Inappropriate Material System

Theres always millions of people searching for free porn on the net, at any point in time. There will always be a human available somewhere who can be fooled into doing things without them even knowing they are doing it, like helping spamming. It's wise to not rely only on image verification, if fo...

Re: Inappropriate Material System

there are still MANY spambots that get through the "blocking" methods. If we each build our own verification procedures, that diverse "ecosystem" makes it exponentially harder for automated processes to slip by. Defaults (and any situation where weak OCR can prove effective) get targeted most heavi...

Re: Inappropriate Material System

we have word filters on common spam terms, such as medications, and since those terms are usually contained in links, the spammers post ends up as It's very unlikely these spammers are actual people. Reliably blocking automated sign-ups is far more effective. If it’s inappropriate for children, it’...
