Getting spammed quite a lot


We seem to be getting spammed quite a lot. How easy it is for bots to create an account? Does Discourse offer any protection against malicious bots?

Whats with all the spam lately

I personally haven’t seen a lot of spam (or any that I can remember) here, but I only check in every couple of days. I do know that Discourse has some protections built in, but it also relies on the community self-policing. I’ve been following this thread for a while. It seems interesting.

Edit: This is also dependent on what version we’re on.


I clicked that link, and it had a log in button, but looked exactly like this discourse, so I immediately assumed I got banned…
Thanks for that xD
