Maximum numbers of post per day

Post by Ideas Bot » Tue Jan 02, 2018 4:36 pm

Add an option in ACP / POSTING / Post Settings with "Maximum number of posts per day" which will help fight spam bots.

"Maximum number of posts per day" which will help fight spam bots.
Surely there are less stupid ways (I'm actively stopping myself from using more colourful language) to achieve that. (There are topics about stopping spammers).
I predict very few YES voters unless you can come up with a beter justification for that feature.
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)

There are far easier and much more affective ways to stop spam. When was the last time you saw any on here for instance?

The whole point of a discussion board is to allow people to freely discuss something. Can you imagine the annoyance if you were mid-debate with someone and you got a message saying that's it for today, you'll have to come back in 12 hours before you can post again. Wave goodbye to your users.

In any way to limit maximum number of posts per day does not help at all to fight against spam bots. They would have the same number of posts per day as regular members !
