Spam report blocked by timer
« on: March 22, 2019, 12:15:49 pm »

A spammer (or malware bot) made two recent posts. I used the "report to moderator" link for one of them, but the forum software wouldn't let me report the other. It said I had to wait two minutes. I think that timer (if enabled at all) should be much shorter.

The two posts are
http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php?topic=5792.0;topicseen
and
http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php?topic=5793.0;topicseen

They are the only posts by that particular forum member and contain only very cryptic numeric links to other sites.

I do not recommend actually following those links to view those sites. There's no way to know what they contain. In particular, they could be trying to take advantage of browser bugs to inject malware into your computer.

*sigh*

Thanks. I think the timer is so someone can't report hundreds of valid posts as spam in a short time. Anyway that user and their IP address have been permanently banned.
