    Dr. Herbie, Dan and I have been deleting spam this weekend. I'm pretty sure C9 will implement a post throttling feature - limit the number of posts per user per some amount of time.

    LOL... I was thinking the same. Those posts are so compelling that I'm getting on a flight to Bangalore immediately...

    @Charles: Gotta do something. You have to be careful not to impact legit folks, but this spam stuff is ruining the C9 experience right now. I realize you guys delete this stuff ASAP, but when you read C9 via RSS that doesn't do you a whole lot of good. My RSS feed has got around 180 items in it right now, but I bet there's 10 legit posts. Going to be a fun morning. Sad

    the first page was good enough that I felt no need to look farther... Smiley

    Someone needs to get a grip on this. I've removed yet another 200 or so spam posts on the Build forum.

    @evildictaitor: Is this current bout of spam from bots or really dedicated human minions?

    That's a great point (deleting from the site doesn't clean up already downloaded RSS items...). Sorry about this. The smart folks on the dev 9 team will figure something out.

    delete from forums where user = @user

    This is not rocket science.

    And another 50 from the Coffeehouse just now.

    How about a feature on the user page for mods: "Delete all threads by this user" for users less than 30 days old.

    @evildictaitor:Even better, a feature for us. Like the Hide feature in Facebook, lets you hide the item and they shows a link to hide all items from that user. It won't help the RSS issue of course, but at least us as users can filter crap out in a quick manner.
