I found a post where an admin had a hundred spam posts on their site. The default settings are supposed to prevent spam. If it’s possible without a headache and it won’t be redundant I would like to include the Recaptcha V2 on my site for user registration, but not if there’s already a feature that protects against spam registration. I want to have some protection against trolls that might use automated scripts who would specifically target my site. I don’t have any visitors yet so this is just theoretical.
What post are you talking about? We take spam very seriously and default settings go a long way to handling most spam vectors.
Just make sure you set up the Akismet plugin and purchase an Akismet key. Discourse defaults are very safe. In the topic you are referring to the admin changed a bunch of defaults to unsafe values.
Thanks. If the defaults are very secure then I won’t worry about it.
