Inactive users deleted, new anti spam protection

Post by Christopher »

Dear users,
due to continuing spam problems, I enabled a new spam protection mechanism.

In the hope that it protects the board better against spam bots, posts by new users are now directly visible (if they pass the spam check). If your post doesn't pass the spam check, it will end up in the moderation queue just like before.

In the past, new posts were sometimes stuck in the moderation queue for a while until I found the time to approve them. Let's hope the new spam protection is working good and I can keep the current settings so posts of new users will be instantly visible.

In the process of cleaning up, I again deleted inactive users with zero posts. From my experience, these users are usually bot users that will eventually start spamming. I am really sorry if I deleted the account of somebody who is just reading. Feel free to create a new account.

I try to support my users as best as I can.
Please support me and CrazyStat in return. Thanks.
