Increase In 'bot' Spam On This Site.

Recommended Posts

I don’t know if the site owners keep stats on this, but there seems to have been an increase in commercially generated spam on here especially from overseas. The latest one seems to be from AOL with a US freephone number. Another was an IT consultancy written entirely in Malay.

 

Given that an IT firm in Indonesia in all probability, didn’t specifically target Malay speakers on a local community forum in South Yorkshire looking for customers, the registration must have been done by some automated system (a ‘bot’). It is a couple of years since I registered on here so I can’t remember, but isn’t there a ‘captcha’ filter and email verification to stop this happening?
