It is with this in mind that all anti-spam features of Aneuch have been carefully considered, not only for the impact . . . have on your users, but the effectiveness they will have against combating spam. Without further adieu, here is an overview of Aneuch's anti-spam capabil . . . ` tag to all external links.

. . . WikiSpam is a wikiwide problem. It won't be solved but wikiwide. (see [[http://c2.c . . . om/cgi/wiki?WikiSpam]]) ---- I'll be using this page to brainstorm on tactics and techniques . . . to use to combat wiki spam. As you may or may not have noticed, all forms of editing for non-logged-i . . . ng the use of discussion pages). This was due to being targeted by various spam bots. Once I figure out the spam problem, I can re-enable (limited) forms . . . ssibility of using [[http://moinmo.in/TextCha|TextCha]] for combating wiki spam. **~[[AaronGraves]]** In addition to the TextCha, I'd like to implement a . . . ood solution. I'll use a honeypot of sorts on all forms in a hope to catch spam bots. This is step one. We'll see how effective that becomes, and go from . . . hat is to say, a separate form that is invisible to regular users, but any spam bot would see it. If there is data submitted in this form (or modified in . . . a field where data already exists), the edit will be rejected as spam. * **Non-visible fields**\\All legitimate forms should have one or two non . . . ot contain data. If those fields are changed, the edit will be rejected as spam. * **//Link counting//**\\Count all of the links in a page before edit, an . . . he edit. If more than a certain number have been added, reject the edit as spam. //(Note that this should probably only apply to external links)// * **//T . . . ong between the time the form was loaded and submitted, reject the edit as spam. * **Content filtering**\\Implement a content filtering system, whereby a . . . ions into the filter which, if matched on an edit, the edit is rejected as spam. MoinMoin has a good [[http://master.moinmo.in/BadContent|BadContent]] fil . . . ccessfully answer a challenge, and if not correct, the edit is rejected as spam. * **Banning**\\IP based banning is already implemented into Aneuch, howev . . . engines should not follow the link, thereby defeating the purpose of link spam. . . .
