System flag notification repeated several times


(4ndY) #1

I’m fighting with a flood of notifications when the system flag a potential spammer (which is luckily not often). On the same automatically-given flag by system, I’m receiving several notifications (several mails too). The flag is about:

This new user tried to create multiple posts with links to the same domain. See the newuser_spam_host_threshold site setting.

Here is the screenshot:

All moderators/administrators experience the same thing. Is this a known bug?

Did this new user create 11 different posts with a link to the same domain in it? If so, then that’s expected.

No, he didn’t. He used a shorturl service to different pages inside 3 different posts (in total 3 links to the same domain). This happened several times by now. I’ll try to reproduce the exact trigger for this behaviour.
