Yeah we are under some kind of attack, and it's not from india. They just post stuff from india and saudi and whatnot to throw you off the trail. It's either Israeli or Russian based on the time of day they're most active

the measures that were supposedly implemented to prevent massive spam attacks bother me more than the spam. i mostly use scored now. this place is too labor intensive

Our experiments show turning off the cloudflare makes the spam rate about 5x worse, so it's definitely doing more than you'd think. This place is under massive attack. Free speech takes labor.

What's the effort to implement a policy that you can't post until you get a certain amount of comment karma? And you can't vote on comments without a certain amount of karma as well? That would prevent bots from creating new accounts and posting.

Reddit does that, and it pretty much ruins the site.

New people will get frustrated and leave because someone says they have to wait a month to post.

Spammers will figure out the algorithm, and make mass-accounts to farm and use them to spam in a month.

Putting that into place sitewide would kill what little remains of SaidIt. Pretty sure M7 won't tell users "this is a free speech site, but only once you earn it".

It can be done by individual sub mods though, utilizing AutoMod. Which would be effective if sub mods would do it and then regularly check the modqueue.

Unfortunately, there's a very limited amount of users who want to be sub mods and clean the crap out. I mean, just look at the state of this sub, and it's run by admins.

Spammers. What a load of Muslims.

[–]Canbot 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Jews. They are targeting this site because they don't like the red pills regarding jews. Very common. The Israeli military literally has a digital propaganda arm.

[–][deleted] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Damn. Jews are the worst kind of Muslim.

Clown flare probably lets certain spammers spam for a fee or something

I am getting tired of the Perfume spam. I report every one I see.

[–]Brewdabier 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

When I see spam I report it, I do however miss the old reddit ( 2021 or so).

[–]iamonlyoneman 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

reddit was a steaming pile of shit by 2021 LOL

[–]Canbot 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Often after I clean up a lot of spam then come back it seems to not be getting removed.

[–]jerkwad152 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Cocks.

[–]SneakyBishop 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Did a spam hunt just now. All, New, report and block, report and block. We're probably good for 5-10 minutes.

[–]magnora7 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Thanks, reporting spam does make it lot easier for me to remove it. I just did a cleanup round for 20 mins and got everything

They've effectively rendered the check box useless.

[–]magnora7 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (13 children)

I guarantee you if I turn it off, it will get 10x worse than it even is now

[–]Jiminy 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (10 children)

Let's try that for one day

[–]magnora7 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (9 children)

We did, 3 months ago. The results are in. It's 5x-10x worse.

[–]NutterButterFlutter 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (6 children)

I saw it M7, I believe you. It's bad now, and it was a million times worse when you temporarily lifted it.

I remember scrolling through the front page of s/all and finding 1 legitimate post if I was lucky, and even my s/subscribed was maybe 3 or 4.

Sub mods have mostly abandoned their posts, and it's hard to find and keep admins around who will deal with cleaning up the mess sitewide for them. I feel for you. You made a place for all of us refugees and misfits to come together, and it's being shit on outside and in.

Thank you for continuing to fight and keep this site alive for us, I appreciate it.

[–]magnora7 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (5 children)

Thanks for saying that, I appreciate you. You're one of the OGs, with a 4 year account. Thanks for sticking around through all the ups and downs.

[–]markmarkmarkymark 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

i was an OG, until you banned me for calling out the nonsense that was going on wih your admin choices.

and the site is dead in the water.

cool choices, dude

[–]magnora7 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

That wasn't why you were banned, and you know it.

If the site is so dead, then why are you here?

[–]powershit 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

If the site is so dead, then why are you here?

have you considered selling the saidit domain name to recoop some of your losses?

i would personally be willing to pay up to a couple of thousand bucks.

dont fuck this up.

[–]magnora7 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

lol what a joker you are

[–]Jiminy 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Doesn't seem like that.

[–]iamonlyoneman 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It does. It got worse, immediately.

[–]hfxB0oyA 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Well, that sucks. I still enjoy the site, even with the checkboxes. If anything, it drives away the less committed. Not sure if that's good or bad, but here we are.

[–]Gravi 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Gib admin or something plz, maybe mod role in some subs, I am rather active here and I already mod some subs.

[–]fschmidt 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It there anything in the modern world that isn't much worse than usual? Modern culture continually makes things worse.

[–]LarrySwinger2 1 insightful - 3 fun1 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

You are so based, Clown_Chan. I think I will switch from simping for jet199 to simping for you.

[–]Clown_Chan[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Oh Lord, please don't.

That would be ultimate cringe.

[–]LarrySwinger2 1 insightful - 3 fun1 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Got it.

simps
