(This site is a frequent offender. Any chance we can block any post containing "famalegoods" anywhere in the text? Hard to imagine it coming up in ordinary discussion...)

I still say that there should either be a reCAPTCHA when posting anywhere, or trigger it when there are URLs (perhaps check against a whitelist, like USO, MDN, w3schools, etc.) in the post/review/comment.

I'm definitely on board for adding a step if there's a URL. (Could we intercept an edit that adds URLs? Maybe that's not bot-able and so isn't a big issue.)

It is definitely bot-able.. there have been plenty of "legitimate" posts that get edited later to become spam. Not really looking into it much, I'd say whatever validation is used for a normal post is used for editing as well, so it shouldn't be too hard to implement into both normal posts and edits at the same time.

@Jesse, is there any sort of word on this? reCAPTCHA when there are links would instantly cut down on the spam that the unicorn has to horn.

https://userscripts-mirror.org/users/350977/ Posted 15 spam posts and another 15 spam posts all in a row. Seems to really hate my userscript since this is the second time this spammer (with another username) is targeting me with the exact same advertising (shoe selling website?) Please remove this user entirely. For at least the second time. Also, I noticed that this "user" posted all 15 spam posts pretty much immediately one after the other. Probably registered today as well. Would it be feasible to develop an algorithm that looks as the frequency of posts relative to how new the account is and mark them as suspicious if they do something like give more than 5 reviews at a time while being a new user? Also, are these bans just for the user or for the IP address as well?


Spam deleted. Will have response shortly. -Unicorn

<this> was a spam topic, where the original post was reported and deleted, but somehow a reply was left there. Could the topic please be deleted? Just to be clear, Mainline421 didn't post the spam, so please don't ban/punish Mainline421.


Topic deleted. Mainline 421 is good to go. -Unicorn

Pretty much every bit of spam posted on my script contains the string "Jean(True Religion,ed hardy,coogi)". Is there any chance of adding some sort of blacklist to the phrases that can be posted by accounts with under 10 posts or something? If Userscripts.org blacklisted strings that are commonly posted by spammers, it might help reduce the amount of spamming.
