    An idea for you to help combat spam.

    I have noticed that 90% of all the spam on my forum is generated in a language other than English -most often Russian-.

    Enabling a language detection system might help prevent spam by automatically removing posts that are not in English.

    An idea for you to consider :).
    Cheers!

    Hello @lucio7

    Thank you for your suggestion! I dont think that language-detection is the optimal solution here because the forum is used in other languages as well. Those kind of systems are often also not reliable. This one time go wrong in Microsofts search-engine. They have a popular product called Microsoft Exchange, but a search for its short-name msexchange got blocked. Why? Have a closer look: msexchange.

    However I will try to add further improvements regarding spam-handling in future updates.
