It's impossible to post e new post with any link in it, even to something just here in Leiden. If you want to post a bug you first have to post some plain text and than you have to edit it to get the clues and links in there.

If there is a link in the first post, you'll get this:

Unable to handle request

Your post has been marked as spam by akismet.net anti-spam system. If you feel that this is wrong, please try editing your message.


Only editing is impossible, as there is nothing to edit anywhere, you have to start the post from scratch again.

But isn't it tunable?

It can't be right not to be able to post any link in a post, hpw other way to show to an error in a WU?

OK, it's possible to circumvent it with editing, but you have to post something first and then edit, this should be made clear in the rules or anywhere else as a kind of manual.

Well, I haven't seen a way so far yet... Given the fact that the fora aren't too busy here I don't think it is too big a problem... Anyway, if you happen to know another way to keep them spammers out, I'm very much willing to listen ;-)...

Maybe if I'm not too busy this week I can pull a hack in the PHP code here allowing urls to Leiden Classical only... This will be a very dirty hack indeed!

Set a minimum requirement for RAC and/or credit to post.

RAC > 1 or 2 should be sufficiant to defeat spammer scum (except Misfit).
Total credit > 100 as well.

You can of course set no limit and stricter akismet on the help desk, if that's possible.

You could require a captcha for making an account on the forum.
