Default Hidden image links

Do something about the hidden image links please. They are spamming up the place.

Nobody cares about this? Spammers registering and making BS posts with hidden links just to up Google results?

Link(s):
 
is an example. Please do something, we got enough real members making dumb posts without adding spammers.

Why make things complicated? It can be difficult to spot these fuckers, just write some vB code to deal with it.

This is ridiculous, the only reason I spotted this one was because someone quoted a post and this image tags showed up.

Link(s):
 
Ban hidden image tags already.

Yeppers, something oughta be done before they start polluting more threads. I've reported a couple of those buggers, but there's got to be a way to block those automatically.

And both were reported 15 minutes ago (but the new mod is a bit slow atm)
You gotta be faster ;p

EDIT: Something is being done right about these links now

I would love for a auto detection script for these things, but I fail to see anything of the sort (for vb at least).
But this new setup should also be sufficient:
-Minimum of 10 posts to post any images/urls + 3 day since registration wait on links.
-Minimum of 30 posts to use images/urls in your signature.
-Users with under 30 posts gets the notice bar demonstrated above, which is visible to all members.
-Also added extra bot detectors to registration (Won't work on human spammers)

I made the values a bit on the low end to prevent from screwing over new comer releasers too hard. 10 posts isn't that bad, and most spammers get quickly discouraged by any sort of extra work (Why keep posting here when there's thousands of easier forums to spam). Not going to stop the most dedicated spammers though.
I'll start raising the values if quite a bit of those bastards start pushing through the limits.

P.s. These hard post limits should also greatly reduce other forms of human spam. I also applied a 10 post min to send pms to deal with most pm spam.

That's pretty smart. Minimum of 150-300 posts before one can post in the request sections would also be nice, if possible? To avoid newbies filling up request threads with garbage, thinking they're entitled to something. This could result in them contributing as well (not with releases, although that would be nice, but just with answers to peoples questions in general help and what not). Keyword being could, don't really have much faith left for people these days..

What exactly are you Wowing about. He hasn't posted for over a year, bypassing nonexistent filters, and apparently he was using a url that I later on added to the censorship list from someone else, hence why they were all broken. Not like we would edit them like that manually.
All the system does it make it more obvious for people to spot, it doesn't farm posts for us.
Please use the report function next time, unless you're trying to point out a flaw.

Two things mainly, seo boosting, and cookie stuffing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cookie_stuffing
