Forum patch applied.

Recommended Posts

Recently many forums have been hit with a spambot that would send personal messages to every member on the forum. A patch has been released that has addressed this issue and it has been applied.

If you encounter any issues, please report them to us immediately.

Great.

So how does the patch work?

You wrote it yourself or you got it from somewhere?

I would suggest everyone with <10 posts, not being able to create posts containing URLs.

Everyone with <60 posts, would have the rel="nofollow" attribute appended to their links.

I have noticed that the forums that I visit now have a no hatespam.png policy that reduces new member's ability to use PM, post live links and to modify their profile contents until they have about 20 posts.

One bad apple spoils the barrel applies here.

I think that is great.

They should also append rel="nofollow" to the links posted by new members with less than 20 posts.
