Combating spam

Got a new method in place for combating spam. My spam filters couldn't keep up with the spamming that has been going on lately so I've got a more thought out, general feature coded up.

In other words, don't come onto the forum and make your first post and subsequent posts with links. I will analyze your post count, and your posts, and see how many posts with links you have. Then i'll determine if I delete all of the posts by the user and ban the user automatically.

Hopefully this keeps the spammers at bay now in an automated way

I think there needs to be a post about your new method. Like maybe the one that pops up and says we have new mail. Just listing your new procedures, just a thought. I've tried reading some new post and it shows them as dissabled. I just tried to read about the Tri color 1098s and its blocked, and that doesn't seem like spam.

Oh, most likely I need to just code it to update the last forum post in the DB so it'll reconnect to the one prior.

Spammers will often just reply to already existing threads -- so a tricolore one could have been attacked with spam, then the last post removed. Thread still remains

I imagine it's a perennial problem. A bit like ticks on a sheep's back.
