The fight goes on. Spammers keep trying to thrust their links to pharmaceutical and gambling and whatever crap.com sites via the Maricopa Learning eXchange comments. Today, some hours were spent making sure all new comments were not made visible, so after submitting the form, they should see that nothing has been added.
Don’t you think a spammer would get a clue they are wasting their time? Nahh, that assumes some level of intelligence.
Their spam is going right into the can!
I have things in place to ensure the submissions are coming from our form and not spawned by a script.
They latest tool is an email notification that will go to the MLX package owner, and allow them a one click option to trash a comment or make it visible. It should be running tomorrow.
It sure woudl be nice to develop some new resources than waste time with the roaches.
Crunch! There goes another phenedrine pusher!
