Can we please take away the ability of people without forum posts to spam on walls and DMs? Or maybe limit them in general? Nobody needs to write more wall posts than one per minute.
This problem with bots spamming people has been going on for months now. It has slowed down a bit but just now I got another one who spammed 200 posts on my wall in mere minutes.
edit: just came back to 400 new wall posts. Is there a way to delete wall posts when you ban those bots?
I've let CGI know to use spam delete on this spam bot so the spam can be mass deleted from your wall.
I do think that limited wall post to a certain post total or a time amount per post is not a terrible idea though.
Any reason why this "spam delete" is not just used on every spam bot? Seems useful. Just woke up to a new big wave.
Oh uhhhh... that's kind of my fault.
Not gonna get into the whole thing, but the spam delete is not labeled as well as it should be. And, because of that, I accidentally used it in some scenarios that I shouldn't have ^_^;;
After that, they decided to change the button to a head mod only feature to avoid similar mistakes happening in the future, which means for the time being, only CGI can use it and it may take longer for bots to be dealt with.
