reduce comment spam in ideas forum
Thanks for providing invaluable feedback.This forum has been abused with spam.We are quite headache about it. Uservoice’s anti-spam policies are
not very efficient.We decide to take more action.
As Geoffrey Milos mentioned, most SPAMMERs in this Ideas forum are not particularly creative. common features include:
- recent joiners
- no bookmarks
- no highlights
- no activity outside of ideas.
- single vote per “idea”
Given those features,it should be only trusty users who have published normal
bookmarks and annotations are entitled to publish new idea in this forum.
Spammers always care about benefits. They won't continue spams if it isn't rewarding for them.
I know this is a bit radical idea but how about giving only premium users(Social or above) permisison to this forum? If it costs too much, spammers might go away.
With the recent changes of the past few months, you have add an extra step in flagging spam. Users now have to click on each idea in order to flag. Even if the title is spam URL. Why did you put this obstacle in place?

I'm turning off notification till this fixed. UserVoice claims to have lot's of options for controlling spam, please verify you are using them - http://blog.uservoice.com/entries/coming-soon-new-admin-console/.
Uservoice needs to use http://www.iblocklist.com/lists.php to stop the deluge of spam. Seriously, the amount of spam is insane.
