There's 20 pages of inactive accounts (50 per page), some dating back to 2009 :shock:

Unfortunately the URL processing only seems to be for signatures. I was hoping this was also for their posts. Still a good thing to keep though. Once they're past 10 posts this limitation will be lifted.

Dammit, the option not to parse links was for the group description only. It has absolutely no effect on the posting capabilities of new users :angry1:

I did find this: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=1576205
Looks exactly like the thing we need. But that requires some hacking by someone with file access..

Chopped pretty much everything up until yesterday. If they haven't activated their account by tomorrow I'll delete those too.

I thought it was something like this. Why spammers are creating bogus accounts that only contain links.

So, if you ban someone make sure you also clean out any links in their profile.

Do we have the "nofollow" set, as mentioned in the first article?

just cull them as admin, quicker that way, and if Email looks interesting, ban that too
obviously we can't ban gmail, although TBH I HAVE banned it for a week at a time in recent months :P

just checking into nofollow, and it looks like we just have to add a little bit of html magic :P

from the above linked page, view source to see the two SELL SNAKE OIL links set out

Code: Select all
<p><a href="http://www.forumdr.com/?tag=snake-oil">Buy Snake Oil Here</a> or <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.forumdr.com/?tag=snake-oil">Buy Snake Oil Here</a></p>
