comment spamming @ adiumxtras.com

Hi. I get quite a lot of users spam-commenting links in my extras at adiumxtras.com. I'm reporting these comments as abuse, but perhaps there is an easier way to deal with this? Perhaps there should be a way for me to delete comments on my own xtras? Or mark a spamming user as a spammer (making their comments invisible)?

Don't know if there is someone I can contact directly regarding adiumxtras.com rather than post here?

Thanks.

Yes, unfortunately, spam is pretty rampant.

I'll see if I can get you the required permissions to delete comments.

It took me a while but I think Eric managed to hand you moderation permissions the other day. =-)

I got a follow up question on this...it looks like spam postings are done regularly by a few specific users...is there a way to block these users or get their posting abilities revoked or something like that. Getting rid of spamming users would reduce a lot of the spamming.

Any suggestion on how to deal with this would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I've been deleting the spammers again and again. I'm afraid that's all I can do. An Xtras author (http://www.adiumxtras.com/index.php?a=u ... r_id=43434) had offered to implement efficient anti-spam measures but it hasn't happened yet, unfortunately.

I understand. That burninate checkbox is that how you delete users? I could help out if you want...I regularly go in to clean spam on my own themes, it would be easy for me to clean out spammers if I knew how to do it.
Just let me know.

Yes, it is. Feel free to "burninate“ spammers. I think you’re seeing the checkbox because I asked the Project Manager a while ago to make you "Moderator" on the site. =-)

I hope there’ll be some progress regarding anti-spam measures soon.

I've gotten two spam comments this week on my old Xtra: http://adiumxtras.com/index.php?a=xtras ... 472#c39625

I've tried to burninate with no success.

I’ve removed many dozen spam accounts with their hundreds of comments. =-) Thanks for the heads-up!
