Spam prevention

You can use a variety of best practices to avoid spam in your community. Here are some general spam prevention strategies, as well as those that target specific spammers.

Community administrators of externally-facing communities should develop a strategy for dealing with spam. (Internally-facing communities do not typically experience spam.) Here you can find general spam-prevention methods, as well as methods for targeting specific spammers. You can choose the methods that should work best for your community. For more information, see Basic spam prevention.

In addition to these out-of-the-box features, if you are managing an externally-facing community, you may want to enable the advanced spam prevention service. For more information, see Advanced spam prevention.
