We will be enabling Akismet and Stop Forum Spam
@Capsia, it's also not enabled yet
@UniSuperBox Thanks, I agree we need something to stop spam.
I'd rather ubports team spent time, among other things, fixing bugs, than cleaning up...
Since it's a paid service, we'll have more confidence in their ethics.
So it's a decision that may, at first glance, appear unpopular, but is in fact logical and indispensable: the survival of the forum is surely at stake !
This will lead to the fact that real world people, like I, will change their mail addr to nonsense and delete their fullname from the profile so their real identity is not stored together with the post in some 3rd party storage for whatever use or benefit.
@guru, if that is what you feel you need to do, you are free to do so, assuming the forum software allows it. It would be illegal for either service to use your data for any other purposes than stated in their privacy policies, but you are free to do as you wish with your data.

Thank you for the flag on this.
As you know it has been taken care of but it took time because done manually.
@guru you are not forced to trust the solution, but the risk/profit has been weighted.
Personaly I try to keep things separated as much as possible so I have email address connected to activities, not my entire digital life...
No, I dont trust in this and perhaps you noted the changes in my profile due to it.
This post is deleted!

I assume Akismet is triggered when the post contains a lot of links. I have had that happen to one of my posts also.
What I assume happens is that the moderators of this forum are alerted, and they review the post. No action on your part is needed.

@ell1e First post with a few off site links from a new user will do it. Should settle down.
