Anyway I've tried Akismet and it doesn't suit with my site, whenever someone makes a big post(like news) (and with links probably), the post gets blocked and the user might get banned according to the settings.
I can't use it unfortunately.

They should make it so you can set users who have been registered for an X amount of days to be excluded for getting posts labeled as spam. That would make a lot more sense.
It shouldn't be hard to alter it to do that or make a plugin if it has hooks.
what to do then, the can post link plugin not work, akismet not suitable. Sad
How much and how often are you getting this type of spam?
A few times a week atm, but my forum as you know it labrocca, is growing fast + a niche that is highly saturated with spam.

That's very low. Realistically it's not preventable at that level. All forums require hands-on moderation at some point. Plugins and addons do not solve every problem. Places like DP and SP have to manually deal with it and so do you.

Same here. It's a shame because the idea of Akismet is good but it caused more headaches than it was worth.
I got this today, really buggering me.

Quote:A payment gateway facilitates the transfer of information between a payment portal (such as a website ) and the Front End Processor or acquiring bank.

When a customer orders a product from a payment gateway enabled merchant, the payment gateway performs a variety of tasks to process the transaction:

* A customer places order on website by pressing the 'Submit Order' or equivalent button, or perhaps enters their card details using an automatic phone answering service.
* If the order is via a website, the customer's web browser encrypts the information to be sent between the browser and the merchant's web server. This is done via SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption.
* The merchant then forwards the transaction details to their payment gateway. This is another SSL encrypted connection to the payment server hosted by the payment gateway.
* The payment gateway forwards the transaction information to the processor used by the merchant's acquiring bank.
* The processor forwards the transaction information to the card association (i.e., Visa/MasterCard)
* If an American Express or Discover Card was used, then the processor acts as the acquiring bank and directly provides a response of approved or declined to the payment gateway.
* The card association routes the transaction to the correct card issuing bank.
* The credit card issuing bank receives the authorization request and sends a response back to the processor (via the same process as the request for authorization) with a response code. In addition to determining the fate of the payment, (i.e. approved or declined) the response code is used to define the reason why the transaction failed (such as insufficient funds, or bank link not available)
* The processor forwards the response to the payment gateway.
* The payment gateway receives the response, and forwards it on to the website (or whatever interface was used to process the payment) where it is interpreted and a relevant response then relayed back to the card holder and the merchant.
* The entire process typically takes 2-3 seconds
* The merchant must then ship the product prior to being allowed to request to settle the transaction.
* The merchant submits all their approved authorizations, in a "batch", to their acquiring bank for settlement.
* The acquiring bank deposits the total of the approved funds in to the merchant's nominated account. This could be an account with the acquiring bank if the merchant does their banking with the same bank, or an account with another bank.
* The entire process from authorization to settlement to funding typically takes 3 days.

Many payment gateways also provide tools to automatically screen orders for fraud and calculate tax in real time prior to the authorization request being sent to the processor. Tools to detect fraud include geolocation, velocity pattern analysis, delivery address verification, computer finger printing technology, identity morphing detection, and basic AVS checks.
Mate if i showed you the spam i get on my flame forum its insane. Child porn related shit and everything. The above is a breath of fresh air for me lol. But serious just get your staff working mate. Fill your rubbish bin and ban the ip ranges. Sure its a never ending problem but thats how i deal with it.
FTW Forum <-- Home of the DAMNED!
I have a weird thing that happens to my sigs. Its call moderation lol

I have a CAN POST LINKS plugin enabled. ALL my NORMAL users cannot post links until they make 10 posts.

I believe this member, like the others is a SPAM BOT, using XRUMER to bypass the capatcha and SPAM the forum.

How can we combat this!
