To prevent spammers from rampaging throughout the forum, we have implemented the rule that Users with less than 10 posts will be unable to start new topics. These users will only be able to reply to others.

 

We understand that this could pose frustration to new members who may have a legitimate need to post new topics. So if you have such a need, post your discussion in this thread. If we deem justified, we will create a new thread for you.

 

Feel free to also ask any question within this thread.

 

Please read Mycarforum Faq For Newbies before posting.

But of late, after that massive new thread attack, the spammers were actually digging up old threads and posting without replying to anyone.

 

How are you going to stop them from doing that? 

 

Just last night alone, I think i saw like 5-6 old threads dug up by the same spammer.  [laugh]

Alternatively, how about limit the number of reply that newbie can reply each day ? 

Perhaps till limit to 2 or 5 reply each day.

 

At least the spammer can only spam that max number of thread before "it " is banned.

i always thought that accounts with negative praise points would be subject to moderation and be unable to spam, but doesnt seem to be the case for the spammer the previous night.

I agree with this. 

 

Spammers are just like "virus", you just have to make sure the  "anti-virus" are functioning to clean them up. 

 

I believe that the level of spamming has not really increase much, just so that they used to be cleaned up before ppl actually notice, now they get notice before they get clean up.  [laugh]  [laugh]  [laugh]

Complaining about restrictions now? Are you sure? 

 

These guys must have not know what is 6 months ago.  [laugh]

 

You are lucky to have come in late to be able to become the face of MCF, if you had come 2-3 months early, you would have been dead base on your activities level.  [laugh]  [laugh]  [laugh]
