Use Google's re-Captcha to stop spam bots
We would type one or two extra words per post and the spam would be gone and the forums would be usable again.
it's over a year already, I think USO.org wants the spam, for some ob$cure rea$on
Every time I come here, the "new scripts" area is full of entries encouraging us to download malware disguised as "Facebook hacking tools." We must use captchas (or another strategy) for script submissions, not just forum posts.
I like this idea:
this topic (http://userscripts.org/topics/73914)
Recommend for external links only and always add rel="nofollow" unless white-listed. Whitelist of course is up to USO but maybe add a voting section for anything that USO doesn't cover.
Some additional suggestions are appearing in the actual spam and malware topic (http://userscripts.org/topics/9) as of late too... word banning, only links in post e.g. no text elements.
I'm a little worried about word banning though. :\
