Steps taken for preventing Spam in our Forum.

As I mentioned in my previous post I am taking steps to keep our Forum clean for doing healthy discussions.

Recently I have taken below steps.

- Loaded Word Censoring module with many words to be blocked/censored.

- Enabled e-mail verification. i-e user will be able to get into our forum only after clicking the verification link from their email once after completing the registration.

- Modified the settings so that the user's first post will be visible only after moderator approves his post. Anyway subsequent postings will be published immediately.

- Added spam prevention custom field. i-e While doing registration the user has to answer for a question about favorite search engine.

If you know any other solution for fighting Forum Spam, you can share share it thro' comments.
