Deal with spam properly

@terminus There is a user who has multiple accounts who keeps posting the same link over and over in every thread on the forum. Ban them. And their alts. And any other account they create.

These duplicate posts in and of themselves, do not add anything to the site, and makes the site impossible to follow as it bumps ancient threads from a year ago to the top of the list obscuring more recent ones. It isn’t useful to anyone to get notifications for posts with zero value whatsoever either.

It will only empower trolls to be a burdensome pest and to obstruct discussion at all hours of the day. It may be worth applying a short duration IP Ban, and several other methods more resistant to circumvention.


Yes, will follow up with an IP ban if this continues.
