EDIT - I've now searched properly..sorry guys :)

I've noticed this question from Kiamlaluno a while back - Doesn't SE catch spam messages? - is this still the same situation? Is there still no feature like the following:

Annnnnyway - this morning there have been two questions that I've noticed that are spam directing people to "Watch program x online". Is there any functionality on SE sites to watch question titles for keywords, and mark as possible spam accordingly?

For example - monitor for the Watch episodes keywords and auto-flag the question to be reviewed?

1 Answer 1


No, there is no auto-flagging functionality like this. But if the spammer is using a particular URL very often, the URL can be blacklisted which will prevent the spam from being posted in the first place.

  • Thanks for the confirmation :)
