NOTE: This isn't so much about spitballing about spam-prevention techniques - it's more of a question/plea specifically to Andrew: can we implement something on SSD?
Just a quick question here, I'd love for some feedback and to see what we can do about it.
It's about SPAM.
As SSD has been getting more known throughout the internet and worldwide and more widely received over time (which is fantastic!), it appears lately that the site has been bombarded with an incredible amount of SPAM questions and responses. I'm wondering if we're reaching a tipping point on SSD wherein we need to begin setting all posting of any sort to reCAPTCHA confirmation.
While it won't necessarily kill off all SPAM, it will likely have a huge positive effect and prevent clogging of the Q&A boards.
Personally, I don't mind typing in a little code every time if, in the big picture, it ensure the site stays relatively clean of outside infestation. Is there anything we can do?
I'd love to hear some thoughts on what we can do. I'm finding the SPAM flagging process to be a real nuisance - and furthermore I feel really bad for our admins who have to sort through all the requests, much more than they had to in the past (likely requests they're getting from many of us about the same posts too).
