Spam-Control Rate Limit Increased
« on: October 23, 2009, 04:31:12 pm »
In response to the recent increase in spammy posts and back-and-forth conversations in threads on this forum, the time required between posts from the same user has been increased to 30 seconds.

Indeed.  I'm honestly not sure why it's so low, but that's the default for SMF, and I think it might've been reset awhile back when I had to rebuild the settings table.  Prior to that, it was only 10-15 seconds, though.

To be honest, I'm not sure this will have much impact on back-and-forth spam, because it's usually got a greater delay time, so to speak. I think tighter moderating is required, though sometimes it's not so easy to spot it untill it's too late. D=. I know I see this problem on the RP board alot of late, and so far they've ignored my warning - they simply moved to a different thread.

It'll definitely help, but yes, moderation is important too.

Some people on this forum have done that, and others have come close.

The PM limit is a seperate setting, but it's been recently reduced as well due to extreme load on our mail server.  Every PM sends out an email, and PMs from this forum are generating so much email traffic that Yahoo and Hotmail rate-limited our messages; I had to spend all morning on the phone with both companies trying to get that fixed.
