Now Roku is censoring posts complaining about the excessive spam.

Fri Feb 16, 2018 4:03 pm

I posted just a little while ago about the excessive spam and now I still see some spam posts but my post is gone.

Roku, are you trying to hide the problem???

No.

  1. Belongs in the Off Topic forum;
  2. Is not helpful in any way;
  3. I'm working on it.
Yes, I've said before that I'm looking into options, but I haven't found any mod at the moment that hasn't already been broken by spammers, or that will work with our theme.  I think I have a couple of options, but I need to pass it onto TPTB before it can be implemented.

As a first step in combating spam, I've increased the flood-interval to 2 minutes before someone can post a new topic or reply.  There are also some other back-end changes.

This should help alleviate some of the 800 number spam, but it's not guaranteed.

Other measures should hopefully be implemented in the next couple of weeks.
