User "dafei"
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1056923

Just look at the comments from all the news items since Monday, November 08th
http://spacefellowship.com/news/art2370 ... -asia.html

Looks like this is some sort of SEO crap, since all the links point to the same address.

If somebody has a few minutes: please remove the crap and ban that user.

I guess we'll have to add a "pending moderation" status for the comments, similar to what new users on the forum get. (first 2 posts are checked manually, before posts become public instantly) I'll have to find some time to code it.

Perhaps we could disable links in signatures? To prevent this?

And another one...

Perhaps nofollow links on all posted URLs will solve the problem once and for all?

Comment spam at Arianespace scores a double success with its historic first Soyuz launch from Kourou.

Thanks for reporting, I'll change the code to make it harder for spammers.

The only real hit for "astronautdoc-1" google finds (that is not a comment here on the space fellowship ;)) is this:

http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Imtiyaz_Rather/

maybe this is our funny gibberish commenter? :wink:

Lol, he's certainly well guided "Current Advisors: SELF ORIENTED DISCOVERED PERSONNA" and from India, so yes he might actually be that guy :)

There's a new user Parsefall88 who has two ad links in his/her signature, and who crossposts comments all over the web (put one of their posts in a search engine and you'll see). I reported the posts using the button, but they're still there at least in the Education forum.
