Randomised spam Anonymous 05/09/2017 (Tue) 08:10:24 [Preview] No. 8451
I was thinking we should brainstorm this. There are undoubtedly some very smart people here. No wrong answers, just brainstorm.

How can you stop the randomised spam. The text is random, the image is random and the link is random right down to the host.

Obviously a standard filter couldn't cut it, but what about a random filter, or even a smart filter.

Let's say we block posting all links not on a white list. We could also block posts using words not found in a dictionary. Naturally not being able to post without subject text solves the image problem.

In addition, I have tried following the spam links, mentioned in previous thread, but they don't lead anywhere. I cannot understand the motivation for these posts. If it was ad money then just filtering the links should solve it, but it doesn't seem to lead to ad sites or somewhere requiring registration. I get the impression the spam is generated by someone with the motivation purely of attack. In that case, why don't we see more spam, is our current filtering that good?

Embrace the spam? I don't see much of it except on /am/ and I think it's a gag there.

Can you give examples of the spam?

defeating https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markov_random_field would start but that means changing language.

I took that and made a word cloud that should be done on all the posts combined to make better filtering.

The spam never replies to any posts and they also namefag and have the email field filled. That is an identifier. So it is really an issue of quantity and if it starts replying.and You may have seen this with that one attack on 8chan with the bots posting nonsense. Markov isn't there yet.

The links. You're not advertising unless you have a link. Posts with links should be under more scrutiny.

enjoy your groupthink
fuck that noise. anything that blocks you or makes it less likely for you to be able to post because you posted a link is cancer
