can someone add a captcha to posting on this site to avoid the spam or a more thorough user verification process?

we have been getting more bs spam as of late.

Is there any way we can change the sign up protocol as the spamming is becoming tedious?

And we need to clean up them threads as well.

Another way is to appoint "garbagemen" who can nuke spammers if Ser Ilyn Payne is busy.

apply filter.

if n_posts "<" 5 and rate "<" -5
....erase_the_user

or something like

PS. Why I cannot type simple "<" without commas?

yes, can we please make a filter of some sort or a captcha?

PS. To be fair, I did consider buying a hedge trimmer to deal with my long Vega positions.

@nicol use HTML code “& lt” for <. (No space)

another criteria:

if ((post.time - previous_post.time) < 10 seconds) and (user.n_posts < 10) and (post.ForumIDKey == previous_post.ForumIDKey):
...... kill_user // I am in murderous mood today

:)

I would be happy to train ANN to identify spam.
After all, filtering spam out must be a challenge for quants. It is becoming ridiculous.

PS. @pj : you see, I did as you suggested. thank you.

Would probably also join a team of "liquidators" or semi admins, visit the phorum on a daily basis.... I almost own the phorum a career.

I am half expecting the bots to join this thread and offer to help cleaning up the forum. And with assignment tasks, while they're at it.

But one thing is really bugging me. What happened with customised chinese tights? Where did they go?
