Antispam Options
« on: August 19, 2011, 12:04:23 am »
Have a couple different ideas for registration

Question and answers verifications turned on by default in the install program

Built in other captcha options reCaptcha, KeyCaptcha(not sure I read it might be Russian controlled), SolveMedia get paid for captcha responses.

Better protection by default for members posting links,editing profile,signature

Checklist on memberlist to delete members.

Support stopforumspam by default. Have to consider if the site goes down to fail gracefully have noticed it down a couple times.

Develop an ezForum internal spam blocklist based on ip,email,membername from forum spam reports either member posts or registrations. IPB currently does something similar. The entire ezForum community would be fighting spam together.

Random actions/checks for logging/posting
Random hidden fields/renaming fields on registration,guest posting

Country Blocking based on geoip allows easy blocking of countries that might cause spam issues

Spam score/decision engine based on keywords and post characteristics and member registration information would cause a post to need to be approved before being seen.

Relnofollow/option to remove fields to give less reason for spammers to register.

Just some ideas to throw out there more to come.

Been rethinking about captcha for default. Maybe better just ask for default set of questions/answers?
