In order to prevent posts like these: https://repl.it/talk/ask/httpswwwlafraorg123movies-dark-phoenix-2019-full-watch-online-free-hd/15316
from flooding the channel, there needs to be some type of spam filter. What better way to get one by posting it as a Code Jam! We could work with the real repl talk data, pre-prepared of course. It would be cool to see what other people come up with. We may even fix the issue with the winner's filter!

If this is going to be a discord code jam, ping Zwack, or don't because I'm pretty sure he said he won't accept other people's ideas for some reason (forgot).

@a5rocks This could be a code jam or just a quick site-wide challenge.

@a5rocks He won't accept other ideas because he's Zwack

How's this going?

@katyadee Well, I haven't started on my version of the filter. What if you announce this as a competition? Then we could vote on the best, which would be chosen to be the filter against repl talk spam!

Could you tell me more about the website that was spam?

Vandesm14 (690)

@Steven_The_GuyT It's mostly about the spam accounts on repl.it which post the same template of URL's that go to the "watch full free movies" website. It's really out of hand and contributes to almost 90% of the spam in Ask right now.

@Vandesm14 oh, ok. Thank you for giving information!
