For a while, we used OSRS Gold get an AutoModerator configuration which tried to filter those articles, so it was removed, but there were many false positives along with posts that weren't filtered. Our reasons for wanting to filter these articles were to remove posts which have an abysmal phishing url (potentially putting other users in danger ) and eliminating posts which attempted to inquire Jagex for account help related to a hijacking after receiving these emails (Rule 7).
While flagging these articles may not be sensible, we might be able by adding information to boost our Account Support Wiki webpages. The RuneScape Wiki has some fantastic information in regard to such scams in addition to many others which are located out and inside of Runescape.
Yes, those who remark connected to the sub them, but in some cases keep it on the other and only they tend to delete the post here. If a response does not work a warning that appears before posting? We all know of the bottom to the OSRS sub in the Partner Subreddits section, but most people who post OSRS just themed content, don't even appear there, as they did not knew the existence of this 2007 Runescape subreddit and are grateful whenever the men and women who remark mention, its getting clear that the bottom leading to the sub on the side bar is not enough. I'd believed the one that was phishing would be tough to execute, props. On using lots of men and women click on matters, uncensored phishing urls before thinking 16, I concur.
But yea in regards to phishing some more action may need to be taken, these malicious groups are advancing their ways to capture unsuspecting victims increasingly these days. I've even seen some bad attempts to phishing being submitted on this sub that result in fake forums and I am glad they have been removed before anybody fell victim.
The actual problem with phishing posts may also function as spam that the sub will eventually get, phishing emails are delivered in a wave to different mails of potential players, let us say like 10 percent of these have a reddit accounts, they are going to want to warn everyone else from their effort and so there'll be many articles looking the same, all of which may be oblivious it has been posted before. It may eventually get tedious. Which then can lead others to dismiss a fictitious clueless player who's asking whether it's real or not, that is why I suggested an automatic response of some sort, at least a little warning to take care or something like that. Additionally thanks for clarifying that the email to forward phishing mails is now over, I knew of this forum thread, but not the fact that they stopped the email.
I'm not sure that sums up the planned message here. My previous remark explains why these two changes haven't been made together with some information. The first being that Runescape is to get the RuneScape community as a whole (not just RS3), and the second being automatic filtering for this kind of article was tried and found to not be possible to accurately accomplish. We are open to suggestions which would be possible to implement without detracting from the purpose of this subreddit and its own Buy Old School RuneScape Gold
