@Gary Wasn't there a moderator who said all we had to do was post in those spam topics linking him and he would remove the topic? I can't remember exactly who it was.
Yeah, that was me... since @jsonnull mentioned he gets notifications for all new topics, I didn't think of this, and have subscribed to all the channels. However, I agree, there does need to be a better automated solution that will make it less of a re-occurring nuisance.
It is not clear which plugins (if any) this forum uses. So far I have seen these esoTalk spam plugins mentioned here: http://esotalk.org/forum/1619-website-spam
- Honeypot - Signup form plugin
- StopForumSpam - checks email / ip upon registration
I don't know the status of these / if they work with the latest stable release of esoTalk.
