Help! An automatic robot is adding hundreds of spam posts to my forum each day!

Dec 11, 2018 - 3:55 PM

  • Help! An automatic robot is adding hundreds of spam posts to my forum each day. I can tell it is a robot because all of the posts are similar and follow a pattern. It is impossible to manually delete it all without it all coming right back. Is there any way to prevent bots form posting?

  • Hi Donald,

    This is Simon from Champ. I've emailed you directly to figure out a solution.

    If you haven't received the email, please email me a support@getchamp.net. Let's try and come up with a solution for this asap.

  • I closed it to anonymous access and the spam seemed to stop. I opened it back up to anonymous access after and still haven't seen any more spam. I will let you know if anything else happens. Thanks for your help.

  • Anti spam counter measures have been implemented. Currently it's very basic, but hopefully it will help.

    Cheers
