Django Trac Spam


Someone's been spamming the Django Trac today, screwing up tickets and
whatnot. Is there any way to fix and/or prevent this?

I've been deleting 'em as they come in. Maybe we can hack Trac so that
it silently ignores comments that include naughty words.

Yeah, it is a known problem of all wiki sites which permit anonymous
users to modify the content pages. May be it would be a good temporary
solution to add 'guest' user as it done onhttp://pysqlite.org/to
prevent spam?

For what it's worth, when the SpamBayes Wiki (http://entrian.com/sbwiki)
developed spam problems we reluctantly switched to demanding registration.
We've had no complaints and no spam as a result (so far, touch wood). (It's
possible that we've lost potential contributors without hearing from them,
of course).

FYI, this is ticket #454 inTrac itself (http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/ticket/454); I'mabout to jump in #trac and bug people about it.I'll have some time next month to implement some extensible link spamprevention measures in Trac... those would hopefully make it intoTrac 0.9.1 (although probably as an optional plugin).Until we have a permanent solution, you may want to check out anemergency patch by Matt Good for the recent mass spamming (at leaston Trac's on site):http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.subversion.trac.general/5529The patch could probably be adapted to blacklist other domains.

However, as I said, I hope we'll have a more robust solution for 0.9.1.

Cheers,
Chris
