Sales, they just did not have their program check if the forum users can read Korean. As its automated there is no need for that, as there is no effort in the spamming. 

 

So they spam everyone everything and see what sticks.

Its a speciality Korean Dog menu.  They have been reading the other thread regarding strays in Thailand so perhaps they wanted to provide a solution.

That's a relief, I read as 'have you done stuff with ladyboys'

Couldn't a better system of verifying new user accounts prevent this? Some sites don't allow posts by new users to appear until they've been moderated. If the initial posts are not legitimate (and the fact that they're in a foreign language script would be a strong hint) no further posts from that user name are allowed.

The usenames are changing, just check them out. I suggested before that an algorithm will resolve the issue that filters all languages except the ones allowed.  That would save time for those in TV. Currently the IP gets blocked on the spam senders but that is a moving target as the IP is that of the server, so spammers can get round that very easily.

It wouldn't matter if the user names change. No new user name would be granted posting rights until the first post from that user has been verified.

 

I suppose, if the number of new users that are created every day is too high, this might be an over-burdensome task but as mentioned, other sites seem to manage it this way.

But then they make a short post or posts in some topic or topics to get around it. We see that since some think they have to do that before they start spamming.

Anyone remember back when when new members had to wait three minutes between making posts? It applied to your first twenty posts I think. It would help if this could be reinstated.

 

Also limit new users to how many posts and topics they can make in their first hour. Five would work. It would certainly stop the Korean spammer just now who managed to make eighteen new topics in fifteen minutes, and the one on the weekend I saw make it to thirty-seven before being stopped.
