    Unfortunately the most SPAM on my board is from google/facebook sso registered in users.
    I have already added ASKIMET, that does wonders, but 1-3x a week some spam goes still public.

    What options do we have in Xenforo, to prevent SPAM from google/facebook logged in users? I mean, the option to add a captcha during registration is with Login-API providers not there.

    The other option with RegEx filter the threads seems not to be that easy...

    Am I the only one who is fighting against this google/facebook-account spam ?
    Help :/

    Just put the words in there you don't want to see. Really easy and works great.

    Okay, but unfortunately all the spambots are using different words. Currently, i have 156 Spam Threads in the queue (blocked by askimet), in only 1 week...
