I've had excellent results from directly messaging links to the spammers user page to TheAmeliaMay. Last one (yesterday) was only 39 minutes old, but already had a full page of the exact same spam comment to various subs.

Maybe because of the covid hoax or whatever , but they seem to be hitting a lot of sites recently.

    Apparently not. Voat used to have both posting and voting limits for new accounts, that would scale with increased interactions. My accounts on other sites are all a few years old, but I'm not remembering any of those in particular with new account limitations.

    u/Earendil either got his commenting privileges turned off or he's having technical issues. I PMed M7, thought I'd mention it here too.

    Can we get some word filter bans on certain phrases or something? We've had that guy spamming that retarded "Americans would never know freedom" and other shit in threads for over a year, then recently, we've been having those "Get money by working online" scammers.

    [–]TheAmeliaMay[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

    That's the Americans bot. It automatically makes a new account whenever it's banned...

    This might be of some use. I think you can automatically report users who say "Americans" say/think with this code:

    body (includes): ["Americans say", "Americans think"]
    action: report
    report_reason: 'body includes "Americans"'

    oh okay

    [–]d3rr 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    In my head it means an excellent song, like exceptional. But you're saying it just means a sausage... like any old sausage? I guess I've heard bangers and mash before.

    [–]solder0 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

    In a way, this is a good thing. It means saidit is becoming more popular.

    [–]TheAmeliaMay[S] 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    Yeah!

    All new accounts should be placed into a "quarantined" status... until they are removed from quarantined status, all posts must be approved by senior members.

    but you dont even trust your senior members that much, which is pathetic.

    That's a good idea.

    What do you mean by "senior members"?

    but you dont even trust your senior members that much, which is pathetic.

    Are you saying I don't trust Magnora and d3rr?

    first, i have not worked this all out, many of my ideas are off the cuff and flying by the seat of my pants types of ideas..

    when a new post is made by a new user that is in quarantine, that post might be automatically shadow banned for two hours or whatever and if in that period of time certain selected users flag that post as spam or as undesirable, then it gets shadow banned for ever.

    yes, it is censorship, but for example you must remember the links to how to make $90k per day bullshit.. those links in those posts probably contain viruses and those should be quarantined for the safety of other users.

    maybe that bullshit is an attack by one of the other social media networks.

    in a nutshell, dont model yourself after any of the other websites... dont try to be the next reddit or facebook... be the best at whatever you do..

    do you know, my opinion is that the best system for a united states forum would be one that actually verifies it's users individually and instead of typed messages the posts consist of audio where i can hear the conversation from start to finish.

    btw, i almost died last night, my days are literally numbered.. and the numbers dont go very high at this point..

    it is nice to make your acquaintance, miss amelia may.

    I get that.

    that post might be automatically shadow banned for two hours or whatever

    That could work. It wouldn't be removed, just in queue. Not sure if that's where the founders wan'o go, but if Mag ever gets around to making another website (which he keeps telling me he wants to do), this would be a good idea to incorporate.

    if in that period of time certain selected users flag that post as spam or as undesirable, then it gets shadow banned for ever.

    Who would be selected? Admins and mods, regulars, elected officials?

    yes, it is censorship, but for example you must remember the links to how to make $90k per day bullshit.. those links in those posts probably contain viruses and those should be quarantined for the safety of other users.

    I don't label removing spam as censorship, because spam buries real speech, and is thus the true censorship. It's actually a tactic used by trolls.

    dont try to be the next reddit or facebook

    I entirely agree with that. We need competition, but we also need innovation.

    do you know, my opinion is that the best system for a united states forum would be one that actually verifies it's users individually

    I think I talked with Magnora about so'm like that; manual verification is a good idea if you don't care about the forum staying small.

    and instead of typed messages the posts consist of audio

    That's in interesting idea, and someone should definitely do it, but I don't personally like it; talking causes more anxiety.

    btw, i almost died last night

    What happened? I hope you're okay...

    it is nice to make your acquaintance, miss amelia may.

    Thank you! Nice to meet'yo too, specialsauces!

    Excellent.

    And in due course: a request for 'flair' options for mods who'd like to note potential disinformation and/or misinformation on occassion. (Not a request to censor the post, but to leave it open for information and discussion.)

    [–]TheAmeliaMay[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

    You can assign flairs in the "edit flair" section of the moderator toolbox.
