I like this solution, too. Hopefully, this would not discourage the real members from sharing their photos and stories. However, when the system rejects their early attempt, an appropriate explanation should be given, ie letting them know that this has been implemented to prevent the spreading of spam material, which is damaging our travel community.

Kindest regards

By the way, I think I spotted a few patterns particularly with the notorious and extremely annoying Peru spammers.

1. They often use the same phrase for user name and report title.
2. They provide website address in their Signature
3. Comment and Signature are the same
4. Their website address is repeated a few times in the report.
5. Their use the following words in their user name and/or as the title of their report:

Peru Travel, Peru Hotels, Peru Hoteles, Cusco Hotels, Inca Trail, Cusco Travel, Amazon Travel, Inca Jungle, Peru Cusco, Hotels Peru, - often as a one word followed by a digit or a number when registering as a user name.

I hope this helps Andy with a creation of an automated engine to suspend these annoying people.

Anyone spotted any other patterns?

Kind regards
Krys
