    Yeah, we have network vendors here who post their new nutra offers for affiliates, so that's where things get sticky when it comes to filtering those niches.

    That would have been no problem for me. And it would have not been the first time I had to wait for approval. And an hour is really not very long.

    And here I thought it was just me
    BHW seems to ban alot
    I am not sure why?
    I've had problems with people pm me on warrior forum for sales and their system would catch it and ban them

    This forum here is more unique in area of cpa marketing!
    Let's catch them little worms!o_O

    I stand with you, and i have reported quite a few of them but it gets old pretty fast as i do work as well :D.

    But maybe a first post review wouldn't be a bad idea :)

    Good point actually - First posts require approval.
    But then the workaround is that they make a legit first post and spam afterwards but at least it will annoy/delay them a lot more.

    Some do that now with ten posts, so they can start linking on the 11th.

    Make it 20 and if people post very quickly one after another - warn them they are going too fast? :)

    They don't seem to be smart enough to realize that posting like crazy, one after the other in rapid succession, puts them on our radar. I sit on the homescreen and watch them if I spot them because I know when they hit the magic number they're gonna need a slap upside the head, or an escort out of the forums altogether.

    Free traffic on the Internet bites back -- think about that.
    How often is forum posting talked about in SEO terms -- think about that.

    *Forum Spam* classic parasitism
    Really, it is just desperation in this case instant -- the new user relegated to nonsense spam.

    Just make a trusted user whitelist to not filter that user's posts.

    I see quite a few that I'm almost positive are completely new to affiliate marketing and are doing this because somebody told them that's how it's done. Must be a rude awakening to them when they find out they've been kicked in the butt for following somebody's instructions.

    If they are human it is really hard to break them down, but IP is one but with all the VPN services in the world that is easy to circumvent and first post review will make them do real posts to them spam later.

    It is a conundrum that rattles my brain, to how it is most efficient to hit them. Is there any commonality about them that could be used to stop them? As mentioned earlier by some, they aren't to brainy so find out the commonality and strike them with that. Temporary solution yes, but if any it would hit them hard.

    The only one i can think of is to do review of all profiles and check them one by one. Long process and annoying but then it would be harder to do what they do but would sadly also hit others to some extent...

    Im finding this forum quite hard to work with because of this. I'm having a hard time figuring out the genuine from the bots and spammers. I have no idea where and what to post either. Spending time just roaming around with a great programme! Any suggestions?

    this is trivial IMHO

    if you record all of the spam data you could write a filter using those words proximity.

    Why, the spammers or post bots are obvious in 90% + of the cases to me :)
    Now if you mean you are tired of wasting you time reading their spam -- I agree!

    Most people here are real people however their skill-sets differ a lot and many are n00bs.

    That said, sex toys are a rather narrow market ...

    No bots, We have mitigated bots. These are all human spammers. They take jobs to do this. Here is an ad for an example.

    We are going to a paid forum model now, as most of the big boards are doing as a result of this human spam issue.

    $1 for a lifetime standard membership.

    Everyone can still see the content in the forums, except the private forums, but if they want to post and get involved they will be required to pay $1.

    Should start in about a week or two. We will test it for 2 to 4 weeks.

    $1 should not be a real issue. Read only OK free.
    Credit card validation at no charge to the cardholder is another option -- last I checked the cost of a validation was $0.42.
    Somehow epoch (adult processor) is validating PayPal accounts too. I don't know the details ...

    Is it worth $1 to be able to spam :D


    ^^^ LOL
