Here's a post I found at SMF. I thought it might interest some of you...

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=134079.0

Where's a good Viking when ya need one?

EDIT:

Quick Fix - Use the Censored Word List to change "SPAM LINKpt" to  "FORBIDDEN TAG" and this will reveal all!

smiley would you like to fix mine?  smiley

I think that if the SEO preachers are to be believed in that H1 tags are important, then smaller font paragraphs would therefore be ignored by the search engines.

True, headers count more for content, but links have their own status. A spambot would harvest an e-address regardless of visibility, and a lot of links anywhere any how will supposedly boost rating of the linked site - unless they are in a "link farm" - so the spammers will try any trick.

Note the amusing busted code in Sockratease's post lol

I can, but it's so easy I'm sure an existing moderator with access to your Censored Word list can do it.

just set the "word"


SPAM LINK


to be a forbiden word.  Change it to "FORBIDDEN TAG" if you wish to be tactful...

Or you could be like me and some of the people in this thread;


http://www.smfarcade.net/index.php/topic,1995.0.html


We are a little more ...   obnoxious?

That's where I first stole the information from!  But my solution is original!!

I posted it there and some folks used it for fun.

Fun is, after all, why we are all here in the first place!
