    So I see we get tons and tons of automated spam every day and most of them have a common pattern: the thread title is a fully qualified URL including protocol, ex: http://example.com

    Solution: Make the forum software automatically deny threads whose title consist of a full URL (starting with http or https as stated above), I'm sure this would save the moderators a lot of time as most spam threads would never get posted.
