PSA: Block bypass has been enabled for some IPs Balrog Board volunteer 05/17/2016 (Tue) 14:23:15 [Preview] No. 4154
I found where that spam full of random garbage is coming from. It doesn't have any discernable pattern so we can't use the autoban addon to remove it, but it's all coming from the same /24 range of IPs in Russia so we can just rangeban it. The problem is that Lynxchan currently only does /16 rangebans, which would result in substantial collateral damage. To counter this I'm enabling the block bypass function.

If you are rangebanned, you can use the block bypass function to solve a CAPTCHA and bypass the rangeban. This requires your browser to store a "bypass" cookie. No CAPTCHA will be required to post if your IP has not been subject to a rangeban. Block bypasses last for 24 hours or 50 posts.

I've already asked StephenLynx about adding a second, smaller rangeban level.

Why can't I post replys to /tech/ or /pol/ ?

I dunno, what is it telling you?

this is the best workaround at this point. thanks!

Can't you just ban all the IPs in the /24 individually?

Please help, /librejp/ is getting wiped.

globals can only help delete spam. It's really up to your BO manage the settings and choose what risks he wants to accept. We recommend using higher (less risky) settings when under attack, such as CAPTCHAs. But all boards should have a thread creation limit.

Maybe someone can type up a guide to the settings better than:

I can't post anywhere without javascript, no matter how many times I filled the captcha.
http://endchan5doxvprs5.onion/blockBypass.js says 'You have a valid block bypass.' but Trying to post without js opens http://endchan5doxvprs5.onion/replyThread.js which 302 redirects to http://endchan5doxvprs5.onion/login.html Please fix it!

can confirm this.

I'm using Tor browser with js disabled and after filling in CAPTCHA I'm not redirected to my post (actually my post does not get posted either).

Workaround for now is to fill in the CAPTCHA, redirect to board manually and then write a post, which is kind of annoying.

Can you look into it somehow?

3rd to confirm this. I brought this up on tech and while I am grateful for the tor support. After the block bypass was implemented I have not been able to post without enabling some sort of cookies or javascript. It may have to do with the redirection. You can not post in a lightweight browser or a heavily about:configured firefox fork without being redirected to the login page.

I can't reproduce. I'm logged out, go to /test/ (Tor Browser, JS off, cookies on), create post, either takes to the block bypass page if I don't have one, or just creates the post.

>I have not been able to post without enabling some sort of cookies or javascript
Cookies have to be enabled

I can post fine with torbrowser with JS off and cookies on. And I can't fix anything I can't reproduce since I can't dig into to get the details. So anything more you can provide would be really helpful, settings, version numbers (OS, browser), net capture, etc.

Alright. Lets use the links2 modified for tor use with the settings in /os/. That is one example of this. I do not know why it does this in firefox so maybe that can help deduce the issue.
