/tech/ is full of no effort OP, often double or even triple posted, which I suspect may all be done by the same mentally ill retard halfchanner because they all have a similar style and pattern. The vols only anchor these threads, which causes the catalog to be full of this bullshit, while they delete other harmless replies on shit barely on topic threads because of reasons.

Start deleting most of the anchored threads. If you are anchoring them it is for a reason.

At the very least, /tech/ is the only place where people accept the truth of the future.

Like this thread >>>/tech/1034334

Dystopia is inevitable and eternal, and if you can't accept that then you don't belong in a place as hashly truthful as this.

Also, OP, did you see >>>/tech/1032001 thread yet? We have lost forever. We just accepted it. Its all done.

It's equally simple to sidestep filters. He could easily just post random characters. I don't plan on disabling tor, either, so until Codemonkey implements some sort of system that can better manage tor posts, captcha seems to be the best option for the moment.

e345b9  No.3076


I know from experience that filtering fixed strings (not even regexes) and sometimes specific files is enough to get rid of 95% of spam on 8chan.

I don't know why, but they rarely bother working around it, even if it would be really easy.

5d7677  No.3078


How about getting some vol mods who purely do spam cleanup? I'll do it for free

Add this new policy;

Either OP deletes his own duplicate threads, or else all of his posts get D+'d.

This is literally gotten to the point where some retard is using duplicate threads as an esoteric method to avatarfag.

fda044  No.2001


There is no built-in functionality for such a filter.

8d0a68  No.2003


But there is a css filter that will change his text to be blank. There is a way from the mod panel to view a posters history and either delete all of it or go through it and delete specific ones via a checkbox. Just TAB+space through all of his you lazy fuckers and clean up the spam. That is of course assuming the mods can take like five minutes to do that and aren't the ones spamming the microdot printer thread off the catalog.

1cf0b6  No.2006


Yes you can you lieing faggot. I see the /v/ mods delete tor posts all the time without banning the tor access. Go check the source code or even other boards, you can delete tor posts. Stop being lazy and take the five minutes to delete the posts.

c63fc5  No.2008

I'd suggest getting another volunteer, maybe multiple. Even if they're just temporary.

Because this hapa shit is getting out of hand. And I'd rather you not make it more difficult for other users to post by disabling tor or adding a captcha. Because that's probably what the spammer wants.

000000  No.3077


If you weren't a retarded stormcuck newfag you would know this sometimes happens when the .onion server (for Tor users) shits the bed and reports an error, BUT the post actually gets through after 5 minutes (literally). So you try again and end up with 2 or more posts threads actually created.

And Tor users can't delete their own threads either.

>Did var-g an hero or something?

No, and I'm not omniscient either (yet). If you kindly use the report button, then I'll most likely do something about it.

For those that complain about "not banning the spammer", you should understand that doing that would mean banning everyone posting from Tor exit nodes.

602978  No.1999

Also, keep in mind that it's a massive spam attack (about ~5k posts on /tech/) that's interesting multiple boards (including >>>/sudo/).

>For those that complain about "not banning the spammer", you should understand that doing that would mean banning everyone posting from Tor exit nodes.

Here's what you do. You see the spam, and you delete the spam. Why would fucking anyone care if he gets banned? That shouldn't matter. Its not _that_ bad of a spam attack. It literally just takes one mod to spend less than 10 minutes of going down the catalog deleting the posts thread by thread.

Perhaps the bigger question is why isn't there a simple way to delete multiple posts base on content, or to temporarily autoban anyone posting a certain phrase?

1d1f85  No.2007

A simple script could auto-filter this babby spam attack; it's all the same message, easy filter.

cd556a  No.2010

Ban tor for 5 minutes every time he posts

Then tell codemonkey to add access passwords that function as temporary anonymous accounts and let your posts bypass a TOR ban.

As you can see, everyone in this board has accepted fate and taken the blackpill, realizing that kikes will win in the end no matter what. We lost. We have nothing. We will die sad and lonely while dystopia lasts for an eternity.
