  • Bio:

    From 2007 until present Robert has been building out MDFs and IDFs for multi million dollar companies across the midwest and has managed hundreds of new construction IT build outs for various project sizes from small retail stores to large shipping distribution centers. Also during this time frame Robert has serviced hundreds of general IT service calls dealing with everything from broadband, to network upgrades, and everything in between dealing with copper cabling, security, fiber optics, and any commercial grade IT equipment maintenance. In between this time, Robert also spent 1 year acting as a Northern Michigan Red Cross IT administrator and has dedicated a small amount of time doing Linux server configurations for a small Indianapolis company.

    In 2013 Robert discovered Bitcoin and has spent every free moment dedicating time to advancing his knowledge in the field of cryptocurrency. From March 2013 until April 2014 Robert was a Bitcoin and Altcoin miner building up a mining farm consisting of 34 GPUs and 8 CPUs. Since mining on general computer hardware was no longer profitable for cryptocurrency mining, Robert co-founded FoldingCoin Inc in July 2014 with hopes of helping to redirect a large amount of the mining power that goes into altcoins to be better used towards Stanford's Folding@home project.

    Since FoldingCoin was well received in the cryptocurrency community, Robert decided in January of 2015 to go full time in the Counterparty community. Since the beginning of 2015 Robert has taken on the following roles:

    • Director of FoldingCoin Inc
    • Community director for the Counterparty Foundation
    • Host of the LTB podcast: “XCP Weekly Update”
    • Webmaster of XCPassets.org
    • Event coordinator to the Indy Bitcoin Meetup

    @adam

    @pooktwo

    @franckuestein Interesting proposal @pooktwo.

    As well, I think that now, the best thing we can do is help forum moderation team reporting all the comments that are spam. (That's what I'm going)

    Ah for sure :) I Flag them as I see them, I wonder if i earn extra LTBC for that? lol

    @adam I guess that is true, they would just shift to commenting on threads. What if the IPs got blacklisted from joining, or what if you added a captcha to anyone under 10 posts to even comments on a thread?

    Anything we do to fight spam by making new user accounts not able to publish without jumping through hoops means we must also force new users who are not spammers through those same hoops.

    True, and the spam isn't bad enough to where it needs to be crazy regulated yet, but i think the blacklist of IP would at least be good. I am assuming right now you have just 1 or 2 constant spammers because its the same topics and they are always posted around the same time of day I have noticed.

    @bikergsx

    @pooktwo So I have been think on how to fix the issue with the spam and I think I have come up with a solution that might work, though I do not know how easily it is integrated within the site:

    • In order to post a hotlink, a user must have at least 10 total posts
    • In order to post a new thread, a user must have at least 25 posts

    So to carry on with the conversation, you are now talking about spam, but how do they get past the registration process in the fist place, maybe the first step is human ( Developer) then he runs the bot?

    I am not sure how they get past it in the first place, but if you are to limit someone to having x amount of posts before the are able to start threads, it will be less spam

  • Re: [spam]

    @BikerGSX for sure, and the LTB team is even better coders, so I got faitth they will resolve it when they can :) Here is the post https://letstalkbitcoin.com/forum/post/possible-solution-to-the-spam-problem with the possible solutions

    @bikergsx WTF, man you are on the wrong forum.

    Its spam, these come up a lot here, especially late at night. This is not a real person, tis a bot :(

    Well they can bot off

    They bot off like crazy man lol

    How the hell do they get past the registration process?

    Not exactly sure, but you can write a program to do just about anything. They are working on the problem, however I just posted two possible solutions that could help minimize the amount that comes in
