Spam posts on the bug tracker.

Postby oln » 03 Jul 2011, 22:47

Someone is making spam posts on the bug tracker. (e.g http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/opendu ... #comment:2)
Should we make registration to post comments mandatory again?
Would be nice if we didn't have to, but I don't know how else to stop it.

Yes lets do that. What the hell are these spammers hoping to gain from posting that crap on a free game project :S

Seems like it might actually be a registered sf user, so there isn't much point disabling anonymous posting.

Hmmm, ok then we should report him to SF.

I found this page that mentions a plug-in for trac to remove comments and tickets. The plug-in is called TracTicketDelete.

Apparently it was just an anonymous post, so I will disable that for now. Also there is now spam posts linking to edgewall software (the makers of trac.) What the hell?
