Everyone browsing this forum has probably noticed that the amount of spam has increased recently.
I have done my best to flag every post I come across of ... and it is quite easily to distinguish spam post from others from the subject line alone. Unfortunately, in order to flag the post one need to open it.
Anyway, I understand the SDK support team has more than enough things on their mind, helping out people genuinely looking for help, that they cannot find the time to look into solutions to prevent spamming.
I am more than happy to flag the posts, but that is all I can do, flag.
While I don't want to add even more work into your (SDK support) hands, here might be some advice or suggestion that could help in reducing said spam.
People seem to simply register an account, and immediately post spam ... and never to be seen again afterwards.
So, apart from removing the spam post, why not simply delete the account. Maybe even banning if that is possible.
The other suggestion I have is that it might be worthwhile to introduce a delay before a new user can post its first message after having created an account. Let's say 24 hours (just a suggestion), by the time the account/user is allowed to post he/she has already moved on.
But seriously, try to delete these spammer-accounts before the database gets so crowded it does affect the whole forum.
Thanks for reading.
