    Stop Banned Words
    Stop posts / threads being created with banned words. These words can be in the title of the thread or the content of the post/thread. This prevents the human spammer from using their usual spam content (copy / pasted from word/txt). The human spammer can vary what they write, but after going through the hassle of not being able to create a real link / sneaky link of any sort (see below), most will just give up.

    Link -Post-Rules
    These rules prevent users who do not meet the requirement from creating links in various places.
    The Link -Post-Rules condition's are set in the ACP and include:
    • Minimum Number of Posts
    • Minimum Number of Likes
    • Minimum Like : Post Ratio (This should prevent many users from creating pointless posts, just to increase their post count)
    • Minimum Registration Days
    Stop Sneaky Urls
    Stop Sneaky URLs with Regex, in title / content. If humans can't post real links, often human spammers will try to sneak broken links into posts, or thread titles, for instance: w w w . mysite . c o m. This regex stops threads / posts being created with these types of Sneaky URLs )

    Signature-Modify-Rules
    These rules prevent new users from chainging their signature from default (blank) until the conditions are met. A separate set of conditions similar to above (for link post rules) are definable in the ACP

    • Turn On Link-Post-Rules For Posts && Threads
    • Turn On Link-Post-Rules For Profile Posts
    • Turn On Link-Post-Rules For Conversations
    • Turn On Link-Post-Rules For HomePage URL
