I ran a check on new member Modi-Fly and he is on one blacklist. His first post is a genuine post so I guess that we just have to watch him and see how he performs. If he had not already posted, I would have deleted him as a member.
please be careful with manually deleting users due to blacklists.
First, there is 2 categories when you recheck: “would have been blocked” and “found but would not have been blocked”. The latter usually means, that somebody in the same network or provider has been spamming, so that’s just a notification.
Then, it’s also very possible that somebody just “inherited” a dynamic IP which was earlier used by a spammer.
I know that sometimes spammers get through the blacklist, but we still have the new user moderation in place, so we can delete based on behavior.
Point well taken.
