The continueing war against spam posters
« on: August 28, 2011, 07:43:35 PM »
The OzSuper.com war against Spammers has now stepped up a few notches.

Some measures taken with the help of the new SMF Version 2:

  • Multiple MODS added that refuse spammers from joining.
  • New members are defaulted into into a "Being Watched" member group. To show them they under on probation, and are subject to being banned/deleted.
  • Bulk power to Ban/Delete members in numbers.
  • Activation of the new SMF feature for Registration questions that must be answered. These weed out automated bots, and also emphasise the OzSuper SPAM policy.
  • High strength quality passwords required.

Again, to explain the SPAM policy on this board....

  • Posters must stay on topic.
  • Any links must not be excessive, and must remain subordinate to the value of the post.
  • Links may cause disciplinary action if on a sensitive topic: Porn, Sex, Drugs, even blatant marketing.
  • Any offending member WILL be banned/deleted without warning. Their posts also removed.
Otherwise have fun, post on topic and lets all benefit from the discussion.

Thank you,
The Management
