Some anti spam measures deployed

As you may have noticed, there’s been a slight flood of spam lately. Apart from doing the obvious blocking, I’ve deployed Akismet to hopefully get rid of most of it. Akismet works a bit “after the fact” in Discourse (this forum software), so may take up to ten minutes to yank a spam post. If it does the wrong thing, a moderator will undo the yanking.

Hopefully this’ll be enough. If not, there’s the nuclear option of temporary moderating new users’ first posts, but I’d rather not go there.


Thanks for doing this drudge work, and thanks for trying to keep the forum completely open to new users.

If this continues: Looks like we could simply remove any posts with Korean characters. Sorry Korean users :wink:

Or just get captcha
