    Re:Scam Bots

    Brilliant. I remember back in the day when someone made a Nigerian scammer knit him a sweater and all kinds of things. (It may not have been a sweater, but the guy basically made the Nigerian spammer do all sorts of things in a never-ending conversation. It was hilarious, and probably over a decade old at this point.) Both of those remind me of this:
  2. What's the best - paid or free (likely paid) - call blocking software for iOS 10? Ideally I'd like software that: Integrates with CallKit. Duh. Provides info on the likely "spamminess" in the call. Flat out blocks super obvious spammers. Allows me to add other numbers to my iOS block list (so they're permanent and don't go away when/if I change or disable the app). Sends questionable calls to voicemail and lets me tag them as legit or spam. Ideally, doesn't send my contact list to a server (or is from a company reputable enough that I wouldn't mind and I know it's hashed up or something). Basically, I want very few false positives. I can always ignore calls I don't know about.
  3. For the past few days, based on comments in another topic, I've been using CleanTalk.org to help filter spam. You can find out more about the platform here: https://cleantalk.org/. Overall, it's been pretty great, and I strongly recommend it. The Pros: It's greatly reduced the amount of time my moderators need to spend working and moderating posts, users, etc. by flagging them as spammers, issuing warnings, etc. It stops posts as well as registrations. It has a relatively simple interface that lets you mark things as NOT spam. I haven't seen any false positives yet. Those, as you can imagine, are MUCH worse than false negatives as real users can get upset. You can block entire countries from posting and/or registering. Their database seems to be fairly large and/or complete, resulting in high accuracy. I haven't noticed any slowdown of posts. It's pretty darn inexpensive. Established members don't seem to have their posts vetted. That's good. I'm able to remove CAPTCHAs and other things that reduce the odds of a valid user registering and posting. The Cons: The first night, I got a 502 Gateway error every other or third time I loaded up the log. This hasn't happened since. There's not as much transparency as I'd like. I don't even know right now how many posts a user has to make before they're considered established and their posts aren't scanned. https://community.cleantalk.org/index.php Their forum isn't particularly busy. Which could be seen as a good thing… For the users here, particularly long-time users, nothing is any different. You should get fewer notifications of spammers being identified and warned, but that's about it.
