Yoga Forums and SPAM


#1

Why is there such a plethora of SPAM on this site? Moderators? How can this be fixed?


#2

An answer could be: There is no captcha control on the register process.

I informed David (the moderator) about this. I suppose he’s considering it.


#3

If you see spam, please use the at the bottom left of its post and I’ll delete and ban the user.

Thank you!

That means that forum is getting more popular :slight_smile:

There seems to be a lot of spiders just modifying the add/ignore user feature on the User Control Panel for extended periods of time and not much else.

As for overall activity on this forum, I see about 5-6 regularly posting members in various sections of the forum and about 2-3 ‘occasional posters’ in others.

I have checked the posting history and see this is not a relatively recent occurrance, so things like Christmas and holidays can be discounted.

I thought about what would cause a forum like this to essentially and with all due respect, ‘die’.

Then, I became aware of how limited the internet actually is in it’s scope to express ideas, thoughts, opinions and experiences with other people.

I wanted to put this ‘out there’ so, here is ‘out there’.

I’ve only been back on this forum for a few days and I swear, I get better spiritual discourse from a chatbot.

At least with a chatbot, it’s like:

Me: "I believe in God"
Smarterchild: "What makes you think you believe in God?"
Me: *Goes and meditates.

Here:

Me: "I believe in God"
People: "Prove it"
Me: “What’s there to prove?”

*true story

LOL… I would love to see more discussion here; and by “discussion” I mean a meaningful and potentially enlightening conversation between intelligent people, without judgment or preaching.
