12:02 mikemol The amount of spam we're receiving is getting rediculous.
12:13 mikemol I've changed the behavior of autoconfirm; it now triggers after a week instead of after only a day.
12:13 mikemol That means new users will need to be on the site for a week before they get autoconfirm privileges. Currently, those privs include upload and skipcaptcha.
12:14 mikemol I want to modify the 'bureaucrat' role so that it can bump people past this limit manually when desired. I also want to add 'edit' to the list of things you can't do unless you're autoconfirmed or otherwise granted.
12:15 mikemol That should solve the spam problem in the 'registered user' area, at least until accounts start getting hijacked.

12:48 ttmrichter What is the point of spamming a place like Rosetta Code?
12:48 ttmrichter I mean really, how many idiots are posting there that would be seduced by spam?

13:17 mwn3d_phone ttmrichter: I don't think its to get us. I think its to trick search engines into bumping up their sites.
13:20 ttmrichter Ah.  That might make marginally more sense.  Except that search engines don't really do link-following as a major rating any longer precisely BECAUSE of this so-called "SEO" crud.
13:27 mwn3d_phone I guess if the search engines factor it in at all then spambots will keep doing it. Its low hanging fruit sometimes.
13:27 mikemol The people who do SEO BS aren't all going to be smart. A lot of them will be looking for any and every way to satisfy one of those 'make $2000/wk working from home'-type deals.
13:27 mikemol They don't need to understand a thing to try it.
13:28 mikemol I still get direct emails from time to time where people ask me to do a link exchange with them..
13:28 mikemol Link exchanges were the big thing back in *1999*.
