Spam

I've updated some registration settings restricting a little more of what new users can do, updated to reCAPTCHA 2.0, and expanded the moderator coverage (including adding a few more moderators to take care of any spam quicker). Hopefully this will help prevent some of the increased spam that has been happening recently.

But seriously, where will I find entertainingly bad grammar? What about a quick way to spread reputation around?

Thank you for the updates! Hopefully it works!

2 spam posts. I reported both and they were promptly removed.

The big new addition is the addition of moderators. Hopefully these new moderators will stay active on CD and will assume their responsibilities well by combating spam. I know some of the additions personally and trust they can do the job.

Remember, each time a thread is reported for spam, every moderator for that forum will receive an email. It will be handled as quickly as possible. It's a bit much to ask of these people to delete a thread as soon as they receive the email.

It's also not really realistic to ask for spam to just go away. The current forum software is outdated, but it also likely would not be worth the undertaking to upgrade. CD has too many custom features and such a simple UI that everyone is used to for it to be worth the upgrade.

Yes, I hate that when mine breaks down, but the guy at my shop, I think his name is Emmett, is pretty good.

When the SPAM is removed, is the account also flagged / deleted?

Yup, spam accounts are disabled by the moderator at the same time the threads are deleted (unless the moderator forgets to do this). So each new spam thread is a new account usually.

What am I going to do if I don't have to puzzle over nonsensical titles? I think I'll live without some of the other stuff, but I'm gonna miss "man walks two dog" or whatever they were.

Thanks for the work though!

Honestly, if I saw this video, I wouldn't be too opposed to leaving it up.
