Thread: Importance of forum signature?

  1. #21
    There isn't any easy answer to the spammer issue. Probably 90% of them live in 2 or 3 countries. Spammers are mostly very low on the IQ scale. It can be hard to train a mule and harder to train a spammer.

    We can moderate the signatures, but that hasn't been as big an issue as the spammy and useless posts with embedded spam links.

    I am wondering if it is possible to setup a code rule like "no link allowed in threads and post without 100 posts", similar to a code in ecommerce that disallow orders that do not reach a minimum purchase amount.

    The rate for a signature link was $10 per month for every 1000 posts at that time. People were actually making a living by posting on forums. Times have changed.

    Ah right, that's why I haven't seen any familiar names posts later than 2012... Too bad...
