Unholy New User Moderation Active

You may have noticed a nice lack of spam and pr0n and whatnot in the last week or so. That's because we installed an add-on to the boards that does some auto-modding for us.

So far it seems to be working well. The gist is that it will only scan posts by users who have 3 posts or less, so the majority of you won't even notice it. Otherwise, it prevents new users from posting links and other keywords that generally indicate it's a spammer (since spammers usually post once and leave). The good news is, the posts don't get blocked but just moved to the Admin CP where we can approve them if it's just a normal, non-spam post that accidentally got caught in the filter. The bad news is that new users who want to post links may not see their post right away. But hey, no more viagra posts, so it's worth it

Apparently it is, as I'm not seeing spam.

I dunno. It looks like bots are getting smarter. I even got another one today from the famous "AdminModerator".

Well..I wonder how long I'll have to wait till you look through my post. I wanted to post my first amateur fiction story that I'm writing at the moment. But it's like 11 pages long. I kinda added it in one go..so I'm getting ideas that maybe that was a bad idea, and I should just re-post it in 11 parts (a page for a part.)

Yeah, it's funny and sad. But also unavoidable. If we weren't around, it's hard to explain just how much spam there'd be floating about.
