But these posts have way more variation.

They are probably learning.

But still posting every minute doesn't seem legit to me.

Yes, they are.

 

I still wonder how a new forum user can post 30+ messages with a very similar header, a nearly identical content, a link to an external website and some (easily hashable) JPG attachment - and no filter is stepping in! After weeks of (possible) training for such filters...

Strict filters needs to be applied on the headers also. Don't allow special characters (Apart from the general ones), don't allow new poster to start new thread more than 5 (may be less) per day. Certainly lot other things has to be included in the restriction list, so that atleast the spammers need to put lot of effort.

Annnnnnnd it is never ending 😛 Again 😞 why there is no corrective action against this from NI? Or the spammers are using AI(Daily learning something better to avoid NI spam filters?) ??
Thanks

Hi,

 

our daily SPAM give us...

 

It seems very hard to setup a filter or a rule that doesn't allow a newly registered user ("girls") to post 60+ (and still growing) messages in just some hours...

Just I just witness a SPAM free night?!!!  I come into work and the post count for the LabVIEW board was less than 100 (which is what was normal with my work days).

 

If the problem has actually been fixed:  Thank you, thank you, thank you!
