Almost all spammer we were are getting to our network these days have more than three periods in their email address like email@example.com.
Do you agree that if an email address has more than three periods then it should automatically be blocked?
My email address is contains a period, it's between my name and company name. So that I don't think NING would make that call.
My simple solution to spam is paid access just charge $1 for life access. They will walk away from your network and go hit an easier target. And at least if they do spam you you have a financial record of who they are.
Just another thought...
It appears gmail actually promotes the fact that it "does not recognize" periods in email addresses, thereby promoting the full range of variations as available options to given account holders.
Maybe Ning can train its filters to recognize period variations on any account version that has been marked as spam.
That seems like a great solution Anthony. If possible.................
yes, yes, yes. (please)

Hi, ismail. We've been pretty clear for a long time that IP banning isn't something we're planning. I'm not saying it won't ever happen, but it's not currently planned and is problematic in a lot of ways.
My network gets at least 3 similar spammers every day, posting promotional blogs to ugg boot sales. :(
I have a ton of profile questions plus the question that must be answered in order to join enabled. I still am getting TONS of spam joiners, maybe 100 per day. This just started up big time about a month ago. Most of the email addresses are hotmail ones, but there are a few others thrown in. Very annoyed by this!
