Is there any way to implement a way to verify accounts/posts or a captcha process? 

These bots are getting out of control with these (inappropriate) posts

Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think bots are posting unsuitable comments, and a moderator would be more efficient anyway

@Vincenzo Because I have been deleting the ones I have seen. 

This is one of the accounts that I just found and haven't taken action yet. (caution: NSFW)

It's just tedious when its hundreds of spam posts.

I agree with @avid, yesterday I've deleted dozens of spam for Indian call-girls and I've also wondered if account verification wouldn't be a good idea for avoiding this for the future.

Account verification plus limiting # of messages/chats per hour until a certain number of points are accrued.

Hello....What is being done with account verification? Spam is horrible. I cannot spend an hour removing escort ads and when I realize there are already the same or more that I have removed. 

Sometimes it makes me want to quit.

@Fran Unfortunately it appears nobody is maintaining the site. I wonder how the database records can be preserved when all of a sudden the plug could get pulled and the site could just disappear.

@Fran I fully agree. Personnaly I gave up deleting spam. I also stop accepting new players, teams, numbers, etc. until an account verification is implemented.

DIARY OF DESPERATION

9:15 I go to the web and directly go to see the ranking of the most active users.This "user" (https://women.volleybox.net/user/Alexandergra) has been very active and already has 207 comments this month

9:37 I manage to delete all the comments, meanwhile in these 20 minutes I have blocked two new bots that were already posting more comments (one was able to post 3 and the other caught it just 20 seconds after registering and did not post any)

….. to be continued

10:30 I go back in and new leader in the user with more comments (https://women.volleybox.net/user/mevil).

He had signed up 9 minutes before and I caught him "only" with 10 comments

11:20 Before I leave, I look again and another bot (https://women.volleybox.net/user/pakifet)

12 comments in 27 minutes

I see a captcha thing has been added… that's helped some of the bots (especially the ones under the “india” premise)

but the “dubai” ones are still getting through.. they seem to be less of a bot (if that makes sense)

Would it be possible to incorporate a “cap” on how many times an account can post in a certain time period?

The web is under attack of bots this morning, I blocked 30-40 and I deleted 100 comments… I'm tired

@Volleybox 

Can you please disable user comments until you fix the bot issue?

Or limit to 5 comments per hour, for example

 

But please, do something to stop this!!!!!

 

This morning I banned one six minutes after registering and he already had 75 comments

So it's impossible to continue like now...

 

PD: Please, say something, do something

It is urgent to do something. It could be sometimes fun to delete an account after its first scam post, but it's a bit hopeless…
