Announcements / Spam Attempts
« on: January 24, 2017, 01:21:06 PM »
Just as an FYI, I implemented a new anti-spam feature. In the last week, this feature blocked 710 spam attempts, both bot registrations and guest posts. It does make my life a lot easier :D

It seems that google has decided that the pentarch.org domain is a spam domain, even though none of the blacklists list it. So if you have a gmail address, I won't be able to send you any email.

You can post in some boards as guest. This makes me sad. Because 99.9999% of the guest posts are spam. So I delete them. If you really need to post something, just log in. It won't take that long really.

I know people have been clamoring for this for a while. I've set up a discord server for another purpose, but allocated a channel (voice & text) for Aurora. The link is https://discord.gg/0srZrjxptL6tAvtt https://discord.gg/0srZrjxptL6U5JsD

I've blocked yandex.* and mail.ru just because a lot of spam accounts are being generated from those domains. If you are legitimate and using one of those domains, Create ONE registration with a different domain.

If you are currently registered, don't worry.

Another post made me think of this. What Aurora-specific terms have we coined over the last 15 years.

For example: sand-papering.
