    Could you please write a shell command to run an sql query to delete multiple threads started with exactly the same name over the course of a day running automatically every half hour or so. Thanks

    I'm not as moderator, but I think that is what human moderators are for. No need to automate everything. I am sure they are more than capable of writing a simple script if they chose. Human element FTW


    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    I just think it would help to stop people from spamming multiple threads with the same topic they would have to think about where exactly a particular thread should belong. It would also make it easier on moderators to only have one thread to move/delete. Now maybe it is a bad idea, just a suggestion really.

    I can assure you if we wanted more automatic facilities, we'd be putting our hands up for a more effective, universal spam filter. The occasional duplication, accidental or otherwise, is nothing compared to the regular tedium of spam.
