    Can we create a sticky on how to deal with SPAM?

    Hello I have been trying to research methods of dealing with spam: doing searches, reviewing spam blockers, looking for threads with a high number of posts, etc..

    However, the problem that I'm having is that there's so many different threads and the proper information is scattered all over the Pligg forum.

    I think helping Pligg users deal with spam is just as important for the ongoing development of Pligg as Ad Placement and Image Uploading (which both have stickies).

    I was hoping one of the forum admin's could create a simple, clear-cut sticky on what our options are in dealing with spam, and provide a simple description of each method. Then in this thread people can discuss what works and what doesn't.

    Perhaps we could have people post questions. Here are some that I have:

    -Should I use blackball? How effective is it?
    -How do I set up email confirmation?
    -What's the most effective form of captcha?

    Thanks for your consideration.
