There has been an increase in spam lately particularly responding to posts. Is it possible to limit the number of posts a new member posts in their first 24 hours particularly when those posts are in a language other than English or if it can be detected that the posts are exactly the same or nearly the same please?

It is about 6.45pm now in Australia and a spammer/spam bot has just posted 29 posts (or more if they are still going).

Holy crap that was so much spam. They gotta do something about that! That was miserable to sift through. Yikes.

We do have a system in place to block them. I’m going to try to fine tune it. Thanks for reporting.

After this evening's spam attack I am prompted to ask, I don't suppose you want a spam moderator? I am happy to volunteer particularly to cover Australian evening and weekend times when those in the USA are likely to be asleep. I do this for MFP where a post must be reported as spam five times (so therefore needs five members to report) before it is removed, however, if I report a post for spam the post is automatically removed for moderation.

That would be super helpful, thank you! I sent you a PM.
