Re: Spam, Spam and more spam

Think it through … it is a kind of Microsoft moment

Spamming WPMY/BP is only popular enough because there are significant numbers of unmodified installations going on.

Because there are a significant numbers of unmodified installations going on we … and our servers … all take a hit on this crap.

So … disincentivize the platform by making that custom modification obligatory … for all … during the installation process.

Spammers would face a pretty impossible or unrewarding task and move their attentions elsewhere.

Does that work logically and technically?

It is not good enough just to point out one can change it … the problem is not enough people are and hence we are all paying for the vulnerability of the platform.

So shut that vulnerability off. Simple, no?
