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.

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

I have viewed plenty of both of Bertiebat's detractors and I am afraid that there arguments are not backed up by their actions. Both post multiple comments on single ideas (not replies) and the first is obviously cut n paste commenting to gain payback points. Often commenting 4,5 even 6 or more times on a single idea and although a number might be identical pastes others are contradictory. You arguments are unsubstantiated by the evidence of your own activity. Bertiebat comments once per idea and it is intelligible and made up of more than one or two words. He quite rightly adds replies to what are parasitic comments made by people who are pretending involvement but really motivated by personal mendacity and greed.

Thanks for the support. Seems that Peter and his sidekick acct have stopped since June, still plenty pointless commenting though unfortunately. PS. I'm a she.
