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 a really great idea and should be implemented by the end of next week at the latest.The ridiculous amount of members that repeat their comments or only change a couple of words from their original post is blatantly abusing the system.We all know who are guilty of doing this.Thank you Bertie bat for putting this forward.?
