"Trusted members" are those who have been added to a list in the forums spam removal algorithm. I think administrators add members who have reliably reported spam multiple time. I believe this is also explained earlier/further up in this thread.

It think that this is a good idea, alternatively it could work in way that when 2 trusted members report spam, the post will be hidden but not deleted and when admin is online he will decide whether delete this post or make it publish again.

So unless one is a trusted member there seems to be no point in reporting the spam. Do I have that correct?

Not necessarily. As far as I know, if you frequently report spam you will be added to the list of trusted members. You can ask an admin (maybe just Polverone) to be sure.

Is there any progress regarding the antispam system (whether the "trusted members" thing or something else)?
Thanks for answer.

i reported a set of 4 this morning.

Pretty soon they were gone, so i guess the anti-spam thing is working fine.

Hopefully nobody was looking for bulk quantities of mild steel made in India ...

Who wouldn't want steel from india xD.
Yeah I agree the anti-spam works quite well but I still think that ideas statet above would improve it. However, I'm not a programmer and I haven't idea hoe difficult it would be to make this change to system, so I'll let it be.
By the way, I've noticed a new "spam trend" today - posting spam inside normal threads, I have reported three of these today, I hope they'll get deleted soon.

No. Do report spam. The system is 1 trusted member (on the list) and 1 ordinary member (joined a minimum number of days ago) will cause a wipe (of a new user).

Yeah, unfortunately those still have to be manually deleted. I went into each thread and got rid of them. They had each already been reported by 5 people by the time I got to them, so clearly the spam deletion code doesn't work when the post is part of an existing thread.

It is probably better that a sane human looks at reported spam, so as to prevent threads with Useful Content getting deleted by malicious user(s) with multiple high posting accounts etc.

Computer programs can do amazing things, but still cannot perform as well as human in the human realm.

Well, not yet, maybe not ever.

Nothing new to add.
Just again incredulous that someone actually believes that the gibberish posted is actually going to raise revenue somehow. I mean it gets posted for a reason right?

Spam markerting is all about numbers.

Those actually selling the spamming services just have to show that they distributed X million of a customer's "important messages" and they get paid.

It only takes 1 dumfuk to click on one of their links and it is all worthwhile for them, so they do it again, and again.

(Hopefully) simple way to prevent spam.


What if members with less than (for example) 10posts weren't allowed to post url links? Or they would be controlled by moderarors before posting.
I'm not sure if it's technically possible or not, but I think it would be helpful.

That'd discourage new people with a utoob channel etc from joining.

To be fair, i don't see enough spam to consider it a massive problem.

Just report them and pretty soon they disappear.

A guy. Apparently. Named Sabina. But felt the need to emphasise that the facebook account was female.

Newest spam thread title:

"Mistresses typographically contaminants lemming."

Gotta admit, they're pretty great sometimes.
