Increase in spammer getting thru


(Roland) #1

I notice an increase in spammers getting thru posting gambling sites. Using gmail and always 3 posts at a time per user.

We used to never get them but now daily occurance. Anyone else getting this or have a way to block these?

We’re using cloudflare so IPs are showing from there.

Make sure you have the Akismet plugin set up, as many spammers are 100% human now. Also have you changed any Discourse defaults around security or new user settings? Changing security settings can have dire consequences.
