Anti spam / post flooding on Labs

By: bertiebat | 10-05-2018 18:38

Control unintentional comment duplication and also the spamming of unconsidered copy and paste comments by implementing a post flooding mechanism on Labs.

It's used on the normal forum (so the software to do this already exists) and works by not allowing an identical post/comment to be posted within a set period of time.

Very bored with checking my labs notifications and seeing a whole group of identical comments being posted on a list of ideas in quick succession where it is very obvious that no real consideration can have been made within that time frame.

Maybe even send a notification to alert an educator of the spamming activity for the member to be educated if needed.

This is one thing that puts me off posting on giffgaff forums. As you get rewards for being active and posting, it means you get 20 identical replies to the same question so would think some sort of filter would be good. Maybe reduce or remove the rewards?

Excellent idea too much copy and paste

going on for payback and a filter to stop

this practice would be fantastic as there

should certainly be better answers that

are tailor made for the individuals that

are being helped and make them feel

satisfied without the helpers response .

Good idea not sure why this has not been implemented yet... Would rather have supportive comments that help on labs rather then (voted) (good idea) just doesn't explain why you like idea or give advice.

If it was implemented on a regular part of the forum, I think it would be easy to implement here too.

I agree with this because there is a lot of **** on here and it should be sorted out

I hope you realise that you are one of the problem posters. I stopped checking my notifications because it's usually you or a few other serial payback chasers who spam to comments

But you are are one of them who does the same as you are saying on this idea because I see you on most of the posts even sometimes I see like 3 on just one post just saying bud
