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.

genuine duplication of responses and comments indicative of consensus so the time frame is an important consideration. Possibly duplicate responses could be tackled by having a representative response showing with an indication of times how ever many with the option to view if desired

That said in principle could work, so yes
