ttf has a spam problem.

first steps:
1. disable registrations
2. wait for a week
3. delete from ttf_user where visit_date is null [this deleted 12510 rows here]

more to come.

I would clean your apartment in exchange for free airfare to the Netherlands.

for some reason i don't think lucas's place needs cleaning, pretty sure he'd organize a tour however!

Been dealing with spam too. On my ttf I started checking for common strings that appear in spammer posts. My thinking: if they can't post links, spamming your forum becomes a waste of their time.

I get a solid few hundred spam comments a day on my wordpress blog. None of them ever make it to posted, but lord knows they don't stop trying.

sounds fun, shouldn't the field be hidden, according to the article, or am I missing something?

yeah. that part is less important, so i procrastinated it. thanks for the reminder. r426.

it's so weird to be looking at php code for the first time in a year or more. quite the holiday.

Yeah, staying pure until TTF goes full PHP5+MVC+jQuery ("v2"). Who knows if or when that will happen.

just like an official release of ttf, haha

when you say jQuery d'you mean for sending posts, updating and all that shit without reloading the page, using ajax, or do you have some more fancy stuff in mind?

mostly that. no pushed page updates anytime soon. i think that technology needs to develop more. (i mean, i gave js 10-20 years to mature.) :)

Bump.

On a side note, I love the bizarre cut-and-paste randomness of the spam posts.
