I'm seeing a lot of the same spam users appearing in different Pligg installs within my network. I'm starting to think maybe I should start looking for a network wide anti-spam system for my Pligg installs.

I use SFS and Akismet already and don't want another public solution. What I'd like is a simple killspam in one Pligg to traverse the whole network.

Anybody have any ideas?
A lot of Pligg Users are absolute 'Newbies'! Nothing wrong with that. I applaud your efforts knowing they are based on dreams and aspirations of commercial success, contributing to your outside interests/activities and even furthering the betterment of the total online community.

But...... I think you forget your first goal which should be to get Pligg up and running then tested well. If there's a problem in your 'out of the box' install then changing themes, languages, and adding modules will most likely just add to your problems.

If your htaccess file isn't 'ready for prime time' then changing SEO methods will probably make things worse. If your users/visitors have issues logging in and/or posting then don't add Facebook modules and different themes until you have a good handle on the login issue. If your submissions wind up in the discard or worse bin then fix that first. Karma won't save you until you pay Karma it's due!! So don't try fixing your 'live' issues with the Karma module.

There are readme files for most everything within Pligg. All themes and modules I've seen have readme files. If you have a Windows based computer then do yourself a favor and grab a program like Total Commander and browser your downloads with it. You'll most likely see the readme files and can actually read them from that program. Print them out! Highlight and make notes on your printouts!!!

Then, when you ask a question, you'll have a little bit of an idea of what you really nee
Nothing like working for a while then losing your post during submit.

Before I hit submit, I usually highlight and copy all the text I entered. If Captcha doesn't work or the Submit fails I still have my text to re-paste back in that way.

If you know your post is gonna be big or complicated with links etc. Compose it in Notepad or something else then paste it in.

Running Akismet, SFS Global, Spam Trigger and story moderation.

I really want Spam Trigger and Akismet to run before story moderation runs but from what I can tell story moderation seems to stop those two from ever seeing the posts.
