I just wanted to express my appreciation to the Freesound team for clearing up the recent spam attack. I've no doubt it was a lot of hard work and frustration, and no doubt there's still a lot more to do turning tempory measures into a fine tuned self defence system.
Wish I had the skills to help, but alas, the last time I messed with the brains of a computer it was in CPM, ohh.., and a little BASIC.
Anyway, you are really deserving of thanks Guys and Gals!
The place is really neat again. A big thank you, to those responsible
Add my thanks and appreciation.
May I add my thank you as well.
We're still working on some measures, as you see we just stopped newly registered users from spamming. I think in a week time we will suddenly see the spam attack restart again! But we got some really good hints on the blog and have a few more ideas
Thank you guys
I can't imagine how much work would have been involved in ditching the spammers and then ditching their spams!
Thank you guys!!!!!!!
Pfeew spam gone, you saved me half an hour today......
