Why do people post adverts in places they are not welcome to?
Some times I feel the world is full of Moran’s geared to just making money, their total respect for others is beyond belief. They think they can ride rough shot over others just to make a buck or two on the internet.
Spammer seemingly have very low intelligence as they post on news and other community sites with out even wondering if its not really appreciated by those that are serious about their internet community. It’s normally the attraction at a guess of free member ship and the readership on certain sites.
Interestingly though one site I know has a time period of assessment prior to new members are allowed full use of the owner site. This would in fact be perfect to stop spammers but for the fact the site owner as allowed a gate way to direct assess by referral by existing members. Amusing enough and logically expected a small percentage of spammers get access to spam.
I am racking my head how to really restrict spamming with a simple effective solution such as a web based trace and report system using IP addresses used by spammers. But that would be very complicated and not simple and would need money software development and organization.
At the moment I am in a throw it against the wall mode perhaps you the reader may have some suggestions that you may wish to throw at the wall also. Perhaps you unlike me these days are actively into software development and would love to see what is thrown at the wall.
Remembering: That IP Addresses can be changed, but one way these people change their IP addresses is using known dedicated servers. Another the use of know IP changing software.
Could there be some other way of trapping the spammer before they can spam, I really do like an initiation period before new members could publish idea that Newsvine uses but it needs to be strictly imposed. Perhaps a including learning the rules of the site and then a tick questionnaire test before a short quarantine period, then a trial period as a member that strictly observed?
Hey, does any one from any web community want to rebound ideas off my wall? Please do as this is an open house debate, so please refer this article else where to friends that may be interested. Please be heard if you have had enough of these spammers!
