We're now actively banning automated content spammers on all hosted forums. With some clever technology, we're keeping your forum cleaner and giving you back valuable time.
With this technology, we check all posts that fit regular automated spam patterns and rate the post for its threat level. With this, an automated system will check if the IP being used to create the post has been reported before. If the threat level is high enough, the automated content spammer will be added to our database and will be refused entry to any forum we host.
If the system picks up an innocent user, such as, IP sharing or IP switching, they will be able to appeal the ban. An SMFNEW Administrator will review the appearl quickly.
