|Seun Pls Find A Way To Kill This Bet Spammers! by nwaanambra1(m): 12:22am On Feb 16, 2019|
i know how hard Nairaland management is fighting to rout out this bet spammers - but its very clear they are loosing the war.
the honest truth is at the pace this spammers are going, they may end up destroying this forum and render it useless.
they are spreading faster than a virus and they are frustrating everybody both users, guests, MODs and the administrators.
its clear that blocking them is not working at all and banning them is not producing the desired result.
i have studied their modus operandi and i realized they work mostly with images and very few text.
1. I WILL SUGGEST THE ADMIN DEVELOP AN IMAGE TRACKING BOT - BY THIS, I MEAN A BOT SHOULD BE DEVELOPED THAT WILL BE ABLE TO COMPARE IMAGES SAVED ON ITS DATA BASE AND DELETE/BLOCK/HIDE ANY POST IT FIND SUCH IMAGE ON. IN FACT, THE BOTH CAN BE DEPLOYED TO VERIFY A POST BEFORE IT ALLOWS IT TO DISPLAY - ESPECIALLY POSTS WITH IMAGES ATTACHED TO IT.
2. ANOTHER METHOD IS TO REDUCE THE LEVEL OF ANONYMITY ON NAIRALAND. YES, I KNOW THAT WHAT BRINGS PEOPLE TO NAIRALAND IS LARGELY DUE TO THE FREEDOM OF ANONYMITY WHICH MAKES IT THAT ANY ONE CAN POST ANY TRASH WITHOUT FEAR. THE SAD FACT IS, THE ERA OF TOTAL ANONYMITY ON SOCIAL MEDIA IS GRADUALLY FADING AWAY - HENCE THE REASON WHY TWITTER, FACEBOOK, INSTA AND THE REST OF THEM NOW REQUIRES SOME LEVEL OF 'PERSON' VERIFICATION/IDENTIFICATION EITHER BY PHONE NUMBER OF ANY FORM OF ID CARD.
ME THINK THE SUPER ANONYMITY BEING ENJOYED ON NAIRALAND IS BEING ABUSED AND ITS BEGINNING TO AFFECT NAIRALAND DIRECTLY. WHAT I MEAN IS, UNSOLICITED ADVERTS ON THE FORUM IS SERIOUSLY COSTING THE COMPANY THAT OWNS NAIRALAND A HUGE LOSS OF REVENUE. AS IF THAT IS NOT ENOUGH, IT IS NOW MAKING THE FORUM CLUMSY AND IRRITATING - YOU CAN IMAGINE A SITUATION WHERE ONE WICKED SPAMMER KEEPS POSTING HUGE IMAGE TO ADVERTISE HIS BET SCAM AND FRUSTRATING ALL FORUMITES WITHOUT RECOURSE TO DECORUM.
MY POINT IS - IF NL IS MADE IN SUCH A WAY THAT YOU NEED PHONE NUMBER VERIFICATION BEFORE BEING ALLOWED TO CREATE A PROFILE ON THE FORUM, IT WILL GO A LONG WAY IN KEEPING THE FORUM CLEAN FROM SPAMMERS - TAKE FOR INSTANCE A SPAMMER IS BLOCKED FOR POSTING TRASH, AND HE DECIDES TO CREATE ANOTHER PROFILE TO POST HIS TRASH AND THE SECOND PROFILE IS BLOCKED, BY THE TIME HE IS BLOCKED FIVE (5) TIMES, IT WILL BE HARD FOR HIM/HER TO KEEP REGISTERING NEW SIM TO CREATE ANOTHER PROFILE. IMPLEMENTING THIS METHOD WILL GREATLY REDUCE THE ABUSED SUFFERED BY THIS GREAT FORUM.
this is just my little suggestion to killing this bet virus - i know some great minds on this forum can also proffer solution to bring an end to this menace.
