Walter Sobchak Security for The Dudeism Forum
« on: January 11, 2011, 08:44:40 AM »
OK, dudes, I have setup this thread (a sticky) as a place to exchange ideas on dealing with the human paraquat nihilist spammers who have recently been pissing on our rug.

Also, I hope this will be "command central" so to speak (AKA, The Dudes's Pad) for organizing the defense of the the forum. These strumpets, these whores, are going down. They have entered a world of pain...A WORLD OF PAIN.

Just a few minutes ago I aced about 9 more spam threads. War is declared on these nazi bastards, and obviously these undudes are not golfers, they have no frame of reference. This is not Nam, those are the fucking rules and these crazy fucks are going to mark it zero. Across this line...THEY DO NOT!

** OK, off my soap box and onward...........



Please use this thread to offer ideas, express concerns, post updates, post alerts and organize the defense of the realm.

Also; who is going to do what and how? More mods are watching, but it might take more such as new defense features added to the forum, etc. What will work, what won't? Anyone's opinion, is like your opinion man, and valuable.

The ForumDude has recruited a few new mods and I have unofficially called them the "Dudeism Troll Patrol" or "DTP."  :) (A division of Sobchak Security.)

As a close friend of mine once said "don't complain, ORGANIZE!" Fucking eh! Dudes, this is where we organize what happens when they fuck a forum in the ass!

Well, Dude - my moderator powers are only executable on the new Dudeku threads; so, my help - in deletion - will be limited. I liked your idea of reviewing new members first posts before you allow them full forum status. I think M5 is going to be having a look at things - he might come up with something. If I have any ideas I'll be sure to pass them along. Good work on the spam-killing - go DTP!

I think it was mentioned  before, but using captcha for registration would be a good start.  Then start swinging the ISP ban hammer for any current or human paraquats.  That, and then dividing mods to watch certain forums or sections, that way they can focus their powers like Walter did in "Nam.
From what is Dudeism trying to liberate us?Thinking that's too uptight.

To what state of being is Dudeism trying to bring us? Just taking it easy, man.

By what means does Dudeism attempt do this? Abiding.

i'm pretty sure there already is a captcha registration. the problem is that these are real people who get paid in affiliate payments for putting up links on forums. and though i'd been banning their ips it seems like they have some sort of dynamic ip generator and use various ips. not sure how that works. the thing is that i have a great spam blocker installed (akismet) but it seems to be installed improperly and uninstalling and reinstalling seems to have no effect.

all in all i'd like to move the entire forum to an integrated forum either at dudeism.com (wordpress) or put it into the forthcoming "the rug" which will be a dudeist social network like facebook, complete with all sorts of features like searchable maps and classifieds and friending and forums and all that stuff. hope to have that up in the next two months. on vacation at the moment so can't do much.
I'll tell you what I'm blathering about...

FUCKIN' A! Woo-hoo! A big brass ball of kudos to you (and your team) for making that happen; very cool news. If the latest Forum Folly comes off (Dude Annual) then any revenue generated can perhaps go to any costs incurred setting The Rug up, thanks DL, nice one, man.  ;D

glad you're digging the rug idea. check out www.therug.org to see what kind of stuff will be available. but don't bother posting anything or what have you as it's only a sandbox at the moment. everything will be deleted at some point - just testing the software and playing with templates. you can switch templates by clicking on the picture of the palette in the menu bar - there's even one that mimics facebook which we might use but only after changing the colors.

as you can see, anyone can start their own blog and post photos and write articles etc etc. there will be many more features as well which aren't yet installed.

at some point i'll put up a forum topic here for you guys to suggest functionality. cheers dudes! our fucking troubles are over. hopefully!

Just had a quick butchers - really liking the look, so far. Do you know what I like about this Dudeism lunacy, man? It gets me excited, Dude and that ain't no mean thing. Cheers

(will hold further comment 'til later)

I see there's a banner adv on the rug. Will it be adv. supported? Not that I mind that much, after all you gotta feed the monkey.

Sorry digitalbuddha but I missed their spam and now do not know who the spammers are and I can't block them. Next time if you hit the "notify" button either forumdude or I can kick the paraquats out of our beach community for good...or at least till they change their membership.

probably we'll only have our own dudeism-related ads (think of them more as notifications?). having third party ads would probably be very undude. we do have to feed the monkey, but not with our dudeist souls!

No worries, dude. I just hit the delete button, stuck a piece up their ass until it went "click," and poof!!; human paraquat heads rolled! Mark it zero for their spam.

Man, that rug website really ties the internet together!

I noticed it was a .org address too, which is fuckin' interesting.  

Also, forumdude, noticed you're on vacation (lucky). Does that mean if I ordered something from the store, I should probably chill for a while?

wanted the .com address but it'd been taken. the company wants like 30,000 bucks for it. fucking fascists. but org is pretty good. wonderful suffix.

ironically i'm on vacation in LA from my home in thailand. that's pretty bass ackwards, innit?

orders are fulfilled by my right hand order fulfillment dude, rev. philanthropotomus, so it's business as usual if you want to order something.
