The final cut of TMC Podcast #27 is available now with topics time-stamped. We discussed: Consolidation in LiDAR manufacturers; Volvo EX90 shipping with LiDAR; FSD Beta Full Release in N.A.; FSD detecting autopilot cheats, Gwen Shotwell directly overseeing SpaceX Starship; and more. You can watch it now on YouTube. We should have it published to podcast networks shortly.
After battling Chinese spammers for the better part of the week, they switched to Korean. There are indeed filters in place, but that's not always going to stop a determined spammer. Threads removed, and I'll let doug chime in on any new checks put in place.
The thing about spam is that unless you have a paid person who's job is basically spam control, you're going to get a certain amount of spam (and even with a dedicated person there will still be a bit). This forum does an incredible job of keeping the spam down.
Of course. I'm not suggesting they aren't doing good work combatting spam. I just thought I would mention the possibility of using Google's reCaptcha button on a users first couple of threads or posts. It's an unobtrusive single click button.
