It seems everyone's male-ness may have reached maximum legal size, so the hot new thing is Keto!
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Yeah... I wonder what sort of validation this site does for new members?

If they did the email validation and also asked some basic questions related to EVs/PHEVs, electricity or EV charging, that'd probably help weed out a lot of this garbage.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Is it possible to ban all topics that start with “ http” or “https’ ?

Or just ghost any topic with http or www in the topic

It's a constant process!

This forum uses:
1. a human needed captcha unique to this site so it cannot be auto-filled by a bot
2. checks all IP and email addresses against the stopforumspam.com database before allowing registration
3. requires a link clicked in an email confirming a legitimate email address

At that point, a user is free to post.

If a user spams, we ban their IP and delete all their posts, and submit their IP to the stopforumspam database.
We also look for patterns, such as email addresses from specific domains, or even TLDs like .gq and we ban those too.

You've been given the power - use it wisely.

Thanks :) Let me know if you have any questions.

I see "delete post" and "warn user" but not "Delete topic." Do I just delete the first post, then?
