Are there spam prevention admin features?

Are there spam prevention admin features?
Are there means to prevent phony user accounts being set up and then flood the form with spam posts?

One might be moderating new users for the first "x" number of posts.
It could be user verification entry.
Flood controls to prevent a user from posting every "x" seconds.

  • Hi Craig,

    We have an Akismet integration which processes all public posts through the spam filter. If a post is identified as spam, the post is held back for moderator review and the user is locked out from posting again unless the moderator marks the post as not spam. The spam filter is trainable. If a moderator marks a post as spam, this criteria will be used to evaluate all future posts.

    You can also enable sign up approval. This requires moderator review and approval of all new member sign ups, or only for sign ups from specific email domains.

    We take spam seriously. If you experience a spam issue we will work with you to mitigate it.
