Hi! We have had some robot generated SPAM over the months with members having repeated threads with blatant advertising links in their posts and signatures.
It was really bad, so to combat this, I had to restrict URLs and signatures to more active users.
Spammers usually tried no more than about 5 times, but to be safe, I set a limit of 25 posts or more before links and signatures could be used.
The amount of SPAM has dropped to zero, but I may have been overly cautious.
If you find this too restrictive let me know and provide suggestions on how this type of abuse can be more avoided.
