No....

 

I wish we could get auto rotation on Avatars, so it's continually changing each day, hour or minute... ;) Or by heuristics the forum chooses one based on mood detection from how I post.

I know I have expressed some negative views on the recent Forum update before - but I did always acknowledge that it probably had benefits wrt spammers, security etc BUT...

FFS HTF did a user calling themselves BITCOIN with a post about BITCOIN and even a title  of BITCOIN get through even the most cursory checking? 

Really just HOW?

It will never be possible to prevent the odd determined human (or even sophisticated app/bot/script/tech) finding their way through....

And obviously we all need to keep an eye out and assist Mods where we can.....

BUT:

Username: Bitcoinxxx (I forget the number sequence)
Title of Post: Bitcoin link to your Bank Account (or similar)
Body: .... Bitcoin... (possibly even a link but not sure)

I don't doubt Mr Bitcoin could probably identify no end of "Sidewalks" or whatever...........

They were a manual sign-up. I can make the question harder. ATM it's just "What is CFUK short for?"

Well the investment of time and money into whizz-bang software to improve security etc might suggest a bit better strategy.....

You wouldn't invest in motion detectors, pressure pads, cameras and bars for all your windows....... and then leave the front door open!

@Tait Couple of mornings now have noticed the forum entering a forum indexing state between 08:30 and 9 which then locks you out of reading anything new on the forum which is a PITA for those trying to catch a quick read before the work day starts.
