Hi friends from the earth. Its me again 9 years later lol!
There used to be thousands of answers under here but all spam of the worst kind, this forum is actually being hit with rampant spam but one thing at a time.
In the last years I have been making a living in the industry, working for others and did not have enough time to work on my own creations. And then a few months ago a server failure caused me to lose a lot of stuff that was setup. All the stuff being so old and so many things and I dont have enough time now to set every thing back up, well I am still working on it and it seems it might take a while at this pace.... So yes, lots of sites and services I was running are now down or dead... Nabolister, Globolister etc all dead, I wont bring those back, I put a forum in their place to chat for now. This site I believe was not a good source of streaming movies for a couple of years and basically just a mess, it would be easier to start something new from scratch. Other sites such as atsameip.com have been brought back. Barbavid, I decided to can, was not working enough, WIMG still not sure if Ill bring it back, the same or different? Id like to bring it back but did not have the time yet sorry. Id like to make it work for a more recent browser, Ill get to that soon, let me know if thats an issue for you worst case I can give you the code it was always given for free..
What else is there. 2meet4free. I brought it back but lost all the pics plus now it looks like broken pics where all old pics used to be, also video chat is not back yet I didn't have time to install red5, it had issues, not sure if I bring that back or make something new. I been wanting to just make a new better 2meet4free, start from scratch, minimal but well done... I'm thinking about it.
This site here, intercode.ca is pretty exploded. Ill get to that soon. Lately I been wanting to make updates to this forum and that brings me to now, its a necessary part of bringing back the sites in some functional way.
For some reason this forum here at Intercode, and other of my nodesforum installs were being hit hard with spam, whats even funny is that here is being hit hard now, every day I get tens of spammy posts, so basically I wanted to clean that up, in part because I been using my forum to replace the Nabolisters and friends but I wanted to keep it clean and not get spam ridden like here, so I decided it was priority to create an efficient way to fight spam in Nodesforum.
Nodesforum is 10 years old I feel like its been programmed by a retarded monkey, well that was me 10 years ago but I have no time to create a new one there were so much work that went into this and when I look at all the details I cant help to think boy did I have time free on my hands back then, I didn't have a kid and a girlfriend back then LOL!
So anyways I put Nodesforum on github to try to re-organize myself in a modern way: https://github.com/brampta/Nodesforum and I started creating a tool that I call the Purge Spammer option, it has a fireball icon and appears next to each post that is not yours and you have mod powers on, if you click it and double agree it will delete all posts from this user and all posts from the same IP as well, it will also ban the user permanently and the IP for some time from posting. This will be effective for as much as your powers go in the forum, ie if you're me and are mod of the root, it will do it across the entire forum, if you're just a rando usero and have created a folder in which there's a lot of posts it means across everything under that folder or yours, etc..
So anyways all these options already existed but the way to use them was slightly inconvenient, you had to open another page and copy and paste ips and ids in 4 different forms, a lot of work and there was soo much spam it was a losing battle, so now the new little fireball button does a nice quick ajax request that actually just goes and does that fullon purge for you in a fraction of a second, making you able to wipe days/months of spam in a few seconds
And yea I'm still polishing that script and then moving on to the rest of the stuff. Is there any site you are more sad to see gone, that you miss and would like me to bring back faster? Let me know in the comments down below? Probably not, does anyone ever come here? SPAMMERS COME HERE!!
The sites that are spammed for are so lame lol!! no wonder they have to resort to spam no one will ever be interested in this stuff, like chinese sites that cant write in english correctly but spam on your site that they will write essays for you! Hum thats a losing business, you are selling a service that you suck at, no wonder you have to spam really hard lol! Anyways enough about that, for now Ill come back here now and then and just wipe it. Oh by the way the nodesforum used to not put rel=nofollow on links posted, that might be what attracted all that spam in the first place, now I am putting it but still getting the spam, maybe those businesses where they hire people to spam in poor places like freaking bengladesh have not yet realized that Nodesforum has done that change and still have it on their list of goto spam...
Anyways enough ranting, and by the way no Bengladesh I dont hate you but I am convinced that in these countries, and just maybe here in Canada too, businesses exist where people go to work every day and manually spam this shitty spam, and the worst is that, I believe this is generally what paid SEO services does. SPAM! that is absolutely terrible and bad but it might just still work. If you watched the videos from Matt Cutts he was saying that this kind of spam on *low reputation sites could hurt your SEO but recently I read somewhere that a dirty little secret is this type of spamming STILL works for SEO, well maybe I should get into spamming myself!! JOKE government might jail me for saying that so I best say its a joke but is it? is it not??? Probably wont ever have time...
Ah fuck all that, I'm tired, going to play some Elder Scrolls blade on my tablet.
