Why are Foldit's owners allowing every spammer on the planet to place their advertising here, masquerading as player profiles?
The recent borking of the soloist rankings gave me an opportunity to scan through the profiles of players with zero points. There are hundreds, no, thousands of scummy spammers posing as players!
Here is a sampling of just the FIRST FREAKIN' PAGE of results, when looking at "Players with Profiles":
This can be fixed with one set of actions, which can be re-done on a regular (weekly!) basis to eliminate these parasites:
Open the player database.
Filter for players who have been registered one week or more.
Filter for players with profiles.
Filter for players who have logged less than 100 moves.
DELETE THOSE ACCOUNTS.
The false positives should be vanishingly small.
Please do your part to stop the spam problem on the internet.
