    There is AI nowadays for anything: text, images, video, you name it. AI is a tool of the future - sure it might make people dumber and lazier, but it is evolution.

    The problem is not the tool, the problem in this case is what causes people to use this tool for spamming, and it all began with a purple provider. In the end users will likely pay the price with more rules onto them (not onto providers who pay bilohbucks).

    I think it's great to see all this feedback from everyone.

    Thank you

    More soon!

    Soon™?

    Sounds all too familiar. You used this same famous word for something that never materialized around 10 years ago.

    No improvements in 10 years, eh?

    I'm not gonna solve any more captchas than what's absolutely needed in my miserable life. It already takes me 15 minutes to send 5 stupid euros over a SEPA transfer.

    I made an extension that hides old offer threads

    Sadly site loads in a little longer as its processing

    Don’t want layout changes mid load, so not rendering the body until its done

    Only for home and /discussions to minimize that

    Used GPT with manual adjustmemts since I don’t program in JS, no doubt it can be very improved (even I can think of many things but I cba)

    It’s parsing the RSS feed, and using the offers post dates in there, matching to threads here, and removing and once done, rendering

    It saves the RSS in localstorage for 24 h

    Simply smacking people spamming should deter a lot of it. Letting them do it for literal years and playing stupid just leads everyone to the fact that it’s condoned.

    People have been complaining about this for years and had no action. All I can think is that the site is seeing a hit to revenue. The spam is fine until it isn’t.

    If someone is willing to spend good money to spam bump a sales thread you can probably assume they’re doing it for some sort of kickback.

    You’re going to get smacked with ipv6 you know?

    We complained about this when you wanted to introduce the tags and you said it would be resolved. It wasent.

    You may ask gpt to optimize your code. I have some good experience when gpt converted legacy bash script into go and go into c++ for extreme optimization. Give gpt use case, provide problem and ask to do best.

    It did its best, bigger part of the optimization I did by hand though. Honestly it’s not slow per se, it’s just very noticable, I mean how would you parse the posts live, as the site loads, and in real time figure out what not to show based on external data (as the HTML don’t show post date) and render the filtered threads without there being a delay that can be felt?

    If you can figure out a way in theory, I can probably implement it, I’m just not sure how that would be accomplished

    I guess bad threads can be saved locally forever, and you can filter against these on before rendering, and filter once again after rendering with the RSS data to minimize layout shifts while loading with less delay

    Idk

    Watch some adult content while doing your cardio. This should trigger endorphins and adrenaline to give you more energy for cardio.

    I dunno it works pretty well as a deterrent for regular everyday skids with no money and nothing to lose. Once you start requiring effort, you only have the big players and rich skids left to contend with. An open door invites spam, a closed door is less appetising.

    Maybe the problem is not the door. Maybe the problem is someone advertising outside the door for everybody to get in and spam for free prizes.

    But no, ignore that. This is not about providers. Spam is the problem.

    You're both right, I was responding to one point in isolation without considering (or seeing) the bigger picture which is of course as you say.
