Hey @BuZz , I am running this plugin on my production forum, and have been for a while, on v1.0.2 using the lavender theme and have not had any issues. There are a set of words it won't use to make tags from and if you provide a tag manually then it will not automatically create any tags.
Does anyone know if it possible to turn off redactor for mobile view? Use markdown for Mobile and Redactor for full web view?
I love Redactor and users love it as well, but the mobile experience is really bad. The floating bar on mobile makes it really difficult to reply, specially if someone is quoting the original msg.
I've had great luck with Spam Be Gone and Captcha's with keeping spammers out of my old site running on SMF. The initial problem though was weeding out all of the spammers that had signed up before I implemented it. I probably manually deleted 2000+ accounts. After that was taken care of, I never found a need to look at individual posts automatically. The ones that slipped through were flagged by users or a moderator deleted it and the associated account.
The Spam Be Gone plugin prevented over 130,000 spammers from creating accounts in the 4+ years that I used it. It was very effective. I did try Akismet for awhile, but got sick of paying for it. I didn't notice any reduced functionality when I got rid of it.
I would try Spam Be Gone, use Google's v3 captcha ("I'm not a robot." checkbox), and then make some of your trusted active users into moderators with the ability to delete posts/topics/accounts.
