Just for the record...
« on: September 15, 2017, 04:19:05 AM »
I want to say than in my first posts i thought that this   :icon_eek: icon was like aware and asking at the same time (very weird, i know  :redface:). I didn't realize after later, than the icon is angry (i didn't saw the eyebrows before). So, my intention when i used it wasn't to be angry with some one. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Maybe i need glasses.  :lol:

Eek :icon_eek: is many wives' reaction when they see a mouse in the kichten.
Strange if I write kichten correctly the FORUM calls me idiot. Try it I am not imagining things!  :badgrin:

Let me try:
In the k..... = in the  your link does not work IDIOT

it translate that word for "your link does not work IDIOT "

This is a real eek Easter egg :icon_eek: :icon_eek:

aw,

It was the only way to defeat Indonesian spam from a number of anonymous posters who were using every trick in the book, spoofed IPs and so on. The one weakness was their links all had the K word so by trashing the K word it broke all of their links and to further discourage them, I translated enough insults in Indonesian to question their sanity, masculinity and intellect and they eventually gave up. This was after years of having to endlessly clean out the crap they kept dumping in the forum.

The only way you ever beat these bastards is to be as devious as they are.

And I will never write that word again.  :icon_eek:

The last straw for these cheeky bastards was they tried to use a URL redirector so I just replaced it with another Indonesian insult inferring that they were less than masculine and they stopped bothering.  :P It started in the first place because I used to run the forum from a server in the UK and this bunch of cretins were advertising K word fittings made of wood, cupboards etc .... to an English potential market. I moved the forum years ago to a local server here in OZ but they kept dumping this chyte here no matter how you tried to inform them, you could not block them due to the URL spoofing so I had to find another way.

Have you ever tried to contact SMF about that? It would be so easy to
- disallow any URLs in body text, signature etc for users who have less than, say, 20 posts
- limit posting to 3 per day for new users

i.e. measures that would not interfere with the needs of a new user but effectively stop that spamming.

With the previous forum, a friend wrote an excellent system to stop spammers but I don't know anyone who writes decent PHP and I seriously doubt that SMF would be interested. I have the system reasonably well screwed down at the moment so its not a real problem.

I think we need a key word that pops this up.


But that is only the baby BIRD

Did not think it would come out so big.
