    There can be, while no-one can log in due to emergency updates. Spam is a real issue in general atm.

    Reckon I'm probably a bit below average, but I was thinking in terms of 100:1 accounts.

    You got one less moments ago. But something like auto probably wouldn't work as many many people don't post all that often, but do contribute occasionally. I believe the ignore option works fine that's at our discretion.

    If it's inappropriate content you are concerned about, that is what moderators are for. That's why there is a "report" tab at the bottom of every post.

    It was more a case of no content at all, spread out over several dozen posts during the enforced downtime after the first invasion test. This can make threads unnecessarily hard to read and pull them off topic without any individual post being actionable in itself.

    Alternative solution: Copy Kingdom of Loathing. http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/index.php/The_Altar_of_Literacy

    You mean a ratio like 381/269?

    I'm not sure why everyone is taking apparent offence at the idea that number of likes might be usable as part of a spam filter. Instinctive pirate reaction against anything that smells like a class system?

    I'm sure many of you already know, but you can ignore individual users here: https://piratesforums.co/account/ignored

    I do understand the frustration. While the suggestion is interesting, it would carry some implications for new members whose ratios would start out at 0 and change rapidly before stabilizing. It's also my hope that these members are few and far between and nipped in the bud quickly enough that the ignore option suffices most of the time.
