Another attempt at Spam Control

Postby Pete » Tue Sep 13, 2005 5:31 pm

Now, when "QB News" forms are submitted, they are emailed directly to me. They are no longer added to the database at all.

Since 90% of the posts to QB News were spam posts by the same spammer, this will hopefully prevent the spam from ever showing up on the site.

It will mean more spam and work for me, but will also prevent the database from getting corrupted again by the spam, and should eliminate the spam posts for the time being. Hopefully the spammer will not decide to configure his spambot to take advantage of the other submission forms on the site.

I am always available to help the webmaster of my favorite QB site :D

That's smart. Just tell him on how to get in...

I suppose Pete already worked on it... or he's bluffing... he's played a lot of poker lately...

No offense there Pete!

Unfortunately, no one can be told what Qbinux is. You have to see it for yourself.

Well, apparently the spammers don't spam through my website forms...

They must have just copied the form target and the necessary fields to their own server, and have it send out form posts without even sending a bot to this site.

Damn.

Back to the drawing board.
