Stop Human Spam by setting conditions for signatures / posts containing links / home page urls

Stop Banned Words
Stop posts / threads being created with banned words. These words can be in the title of the thread or the content of the post/thread. This prevents the human spammer from using their usual spam content (copy / pasted from word/txt). The human spammer can vary what they write, but after going through the hassle of not being able to create a real link / sneaky link of any sort (see below), most will just give up.

Link -Post-Rules
These rules prevent users who do not meet the requirement from creating links in various places.
The Link -Post-Rules condition's are set in the ACP and include:
  • Minimum Number of Posts
  • Minimum Number of Likes
  • Minimum Like : Post Ratio (This should prevent many users from creating pointless posts, just to increase their post count)
  • Minimum Registration Days
Stop Sneaky Urls
Stop Sneaky URLs with Regex, in title / content. If humans can't post real links, often human spammers will try to sneak broken links into posts, or thread titles, for instance: w w w . mysite . c o m. This regex stops threads / posts being created with these types of Sneaky URLs )

These rules prevent new users from chainging their signature from default (blank) until the conditions are met. A separate set of conditions similar to above (for link post rules) are definable in the ACP

  • Turn On Link-Post-Rules For Posts && Threads
  • Turn On Link-Post-Rules For Conversations
  • Turn On Link-Post-Rules For HomePage URL
  • Turn On Link-Post-Rules For About You
  • Apply Link-Post-Rules To Email Addresses
  • Banned Thread Title Words
  • Banned Post Content Words

  • Can Bypass Stop-Banned-Words
  • Can Bypass Stop-Sneaky-Urls
