    Still a way to go but here are the current automatic processes.

    UKWW_Spam.pl - runs every 1 minute.
    This deletes any threads or posts within threads that meet our spam keywords, these are keywords that would >95% of the time only be used in spam posts.
    Since this went live 3 days ago im seeing almost no spam posts on the forum :)

    UKWW_Police.pl - runs every 2 minutes.
    This just went live, and is only half finished. But this will keep a check on people and remove posts that are not required.

    Live processes;

    1) If a user makes more than 5 posts (under 32 chars so short) in the space of 24 hours it will 90% of the time be due to them wanting to increase post counts with rubbish responses, it will delete all their posts under 32 chars in this case for the last 24 hours.

    2) If a user posts in threads where the last post before them was over 30 days old and their post is under 500 chars (so we keep any long suspected therefor good posts) the system will permit 1 post in 24 hours to an old thread.
    Any more than this and it will delete all posts from dragged up threads by that user in the last 24 hours.

    Not Live processes (coming soon);

    1) If the same user posts the same url in 3 or more posts within 24 hours it will delete these posts as it is likely to be spamming their url, clearly this won't include sig urls.

    General Layout changes

    1) Removed clutter from posts by peoples usernames.

    2) Added a bold "common sense" notice by the quick post box.
