Had this idea and decided to share it...
- option in the admin cp to have link spamming control enabled or not
- textarea in the admin cp to specify words, domains or strings of text in url's that if contained in a posted link it won't be posted
- use * as a wildcard
*.info - would block any link that ends with .info
*free* - would block any link that has free anywhere in it
ftp://* - would block any link that links to an ftp site
- option in the admin cp to only allow a certain number of links posted in a single comment (user specified), otherwise it's forced to be moderated (0 to disable)
Personally I think something should be done about those bots and I believe that this is a good way to take more control over them so they don't keep posting links that you don't want in your comments.
What are your thoughts about it?
