It seems there should be a more intelligent way to check for Discourse users that have auto responders that go-awry. This became a problem for me because I have email-in responses set up. A member who went on vacation, turned on their email auto responder, and subsequently spammed a topic with the same message out of office response to everyone that replied to their topic.
It seems like a fix would be to have the email-in reply feature check if that reply text has been posted before, so in the very least, an email auto responder only gets posted once.
Or is there a setting I’m missing that already exists to disallow duplicate posts? Similar to how you can’t have duplicate topic subjects?
I’m keen to fix this because that auto responder from the topic creator resulted in some of the emails that sent out being marked as spam.
