Help us combat spam

    As I’m sure many of you have noticed, bbPress is often the subject of spam attacks. Usually these attacks are done by humans so it’s hard catch them automatically.

    However, you can help us!

    When you see a topic or reply that is spam, please tag it spammer. This will make it easier for us locate and nuke the spam instead of combing through everything manually like we do now.

    This should be much less of an issue now that we’re running bbPress 2.1. Guess we’ll see what happens!

    What are your best practices for spam handling on forums?

    A simple report button would indeed still be nice.

    Indeed, a button would be nice. Since the update, you can’t just add a “spammer” tag. I don’t like to see a lot of spam and not be able to do anything about it.

    There will be a lot less spam going forward. I appreciate y’all wanting to help, but I’m focusing more on preventing it than finding it. :)
